Gate Safety Week


Gate Safety Week is here!

Join in spreading our vital message for Gate Safety Week 2018 

#'SafeGatesSaveLives!'  let's get it trending on Twitter @gatesafetyweek @DHFOnline

Powered and automated gates are more and more frequently becoming part of the design of commercial, public and multiple occupancy buildings. Unfortunately though, the industry has faced problems with poorly installed and maintained powered gates, leading to accidents in the last few years, and sadly fatalities.

Gate Safety Week takes place from 15-21October this year and has been set up to raise awareness of the proper installation and maintenance of powered gates and how to prevent accidents.  The message for this year's campaign continues to be: 'Safe Gates Save Lives'! 

To find out more about how you can support Gate Safety Week, read through this section of the site. 

The Gate Safety Week campaign attracts messages of support from a number of high profile organisations and highlights the importance of the cause.
