    Reasons why dhf members are your best choice by far

About automated gates & barriers

Many of us usually think of industrial premises when we think of automated gates, but this is changing.  The vast availability and reduction in cost of automated gates means that residential properties and school premises are progressively choosing this option for security and value benefits. 

With the increased demand for gates, comes the dangers of not using them correctly or not having them maintained regularly. That’s why we introduced our own gate safety initiative, Gate Safety Week.

dhf provides its members with the latest information and training on safety and maintenance that will ensure that if you select a dhf member, your safety is assured.
