dhf members of the Automated Gate Group manufacture, supply, install and maintain powered automatic gates & traffic barriers, as well as provide automation supplies and safety equipment used on automated gates.  Automated gates are used for multiple situations such as: commercial and parking facilities; industrial premises and increasingly in residential or ‘gated community’ homes and schools.  

It is estimated that around two thirds of the gates in operation within the UK and Ireland are unsafe.  The aim of the dhf Automated Gate Group is to raise the standards in the industry so that all automated gates are safety assured.   For that reason, dhf created Gate Safety Week – a campaign dedicated to raising awareness of the dangers of badly installed and maintained automated gates. 

All members of the group are obliged to have at least one employee undertake the Automated Gate Safety Diploma Training Course before becoming a full member of dhf.  This certification must be renewed by means of a refresher course every two years to ensure that all members are up to date with the latest legislation and standards required for gate installation.

When you choose a dhf Automated Gate Group member, you are choosing a company dedicated to safety above everything else and one that is trained to a high standard.
