Why use a member?


The principal aim of the dhf Automated Gate Group is to raise quality and safety standards in the design, manufacture, installation, and maintenance of automated gates and traffic barriers.

All dhf member companies are provided a Code of Practice. This assists the member company to supply, install or maintain gates that should comply with all current safety legislation and safety standards.

In addition, all member companies adhere to the dhf Quality Assured Standards scheme designed to drive up levels of technical competence within the industry.

A professional gate installation makes a vital contribution to your business or domestic protection, ensuring the user can be protected from hazards arising from the gate installation.

As well as minimising the chances of injury, a safe gate installation also reduces the user’s liability in case of any unforeseen incident.

In summary, the key benefits of using a dhf Automated Gate Group member are:

  • Minimised liability - you fulfil your statutory requirements.
  • Highly trained - the best training in the gate industry.
  • User safety - products are safely installed and force tested.

  • Expertise to suit different applications - a school area or playground has different requirements to a controlled industrial environment.
