On Wednesday 12th September, Gate Safe visited the Houses of Parliament for a round table conference, meeting with key stakeholders to discuss future initiatives in our quest to make all automated gates in the UK completely safe and prevent the terrible tragedies that led to the foundation of our charity 8 years ago.
Gate Safe is a charity set up to raise the awareness of safety issues associated with automated gates and barriers. The charity supports anyone in the industry - from designers & manufacturers, users, specifiers, construction companies, health and safety personnel, key trade industry bodies and installers.

If you are looking at having new electric gates installed then safety is paramount. To ensure your installation meets all safety guidelines then ensure your installers are members of the DHF Door Hardware Federation and Gate Safe. When the installation is complete ask your installers to provide full operating instructions, safety advice and demonstrate the correct way to operate the gates.
