We are now members of the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) until 2020.
The DHF is a not-for-profit trade association for companies associated with Locks & Building Hardware; Doorsets; Industrial Doors & Shutters; Domestic Garage Doors and Automated Gates.
Originally formed in 1897, dhf has over 400 members and is the ‘go to’ place for technical advice and training which lends itself to raising the standards of the industry. They are regarded as the ‘Centre of Excellence’, with a network of professional staff members as well as external consultants that can provide support to us in all sectors, making them a single source for technical expertise, information, knowledge, advice, and practical help.
As a federation, they support our various industry sectors by representing them on BSI standards committees, liaising with compliance authorities such as the Health and Safety Executive and Trading Standards as well as fire safety organisations across the UK and Europe.
