The DHF are a long established and well respected trade association who can trace our roots back to 1897 and currently have around 280 members.
They provide professionals in all sectors of the building industry with a single source for technical expertise, information, knowledge, advice and practical help.
The DHF actively helps its members comply with the latest CE marking legislation and other health & safety and compliance legislation. In addition, compliance gives members the competitive edge in the market over non member companies which are yet to comply with latest CE mark regulations.
It is vital that specifiers choose a CE marked product from a DHF member. The CE mark is evidence of product safety compliance under health and safety legislation, and so it helps protect the specifier from litigation in the event of an accident occurring post installation.
All automated doors and shutters must be CE marked under the Machinery Directive legislation. From July 1 this year, all other (non fire) industrial doors must be CE marked under the Construction Products Regulation.
The DHF is also committed to helping its members reduce the environmental impact caused by the design, manufacture, maintenance and use of their products. It is about to work with members on a number of sustainability initiatives.
