Welcome to Gate Safety Week - raising awareness of the dangers of poorly fitted or maintained powered gates.

'Safe Gates Safe Lives!'  Our vital message for Gate Safety Week 2016:

Powered and automated gates are more and more frequently becoming part of the design of commercial, public and multiple occupancy buildings. Unfortunately though, the industry has faced problems with poorly installed and maintained powered gates, leading to accidents in the last few years, and sadly fatalities. Gate Safety Week takes place from 10-16 October and has been set up to raise awareness of the proper installation and maintenance of powered gates and how to prevent accidents.  The message for this year's campaign is clear: 'Safe Gates Save Lives'!  To find out more about how you can support Gate Safety Week, please click the box that applies to you and help us spread the message. In 2015, the Gate Safety Week campaign attracted messages of support from a number of high profile organisations and highlighted the importance of the cause.  If you would like to add your support in this way, please get in touch on 01827 52337.

Fencex 2016:

At this year's FENCEX, DHF's powered gate group will be situated in the pavilion.  In the morning, DHF's expert trainer, Nick Perkins, will be undertaking a Q&A session on gate safety; in the afternoon, there will be an 'open surgery', again with Nick offering his thoughts and knowledge.  If you would like to ask Nick a question at Fencex, please email these through, ahead of the event, to patricia@dhfonline.org.uk.  Fencex is on 12th October at the Warwick Complex , within Stoneleigh Exhibition Park near Coventry in the West Midlands and runs from 9am to 4.30pm. fencex
