The DHF code of practice draws on applicable legislation, European standards, British standards and industry best practice to assist all those involved in the automated gate and barrier industry to meet their legal obligations by providing clear guidance on the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of automated gates and barriers.
What is ‘Gate Safety Week’?
Gate Safety Week is a dhf (Door and Hardware Federation) initiative; launched with the dhf’s Automated Gate Group to create awareness around the installation and maintenance of automated gates, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance.
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.
