DHF announces Martin Keelagher as its newest Board Member

Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) has announced that its newest Board Member is Director of Security Access Systems Ltd, and Chairman of DHF’s Automated Gate Group, Martin Keelagher.  

Following eighteen months of unprecedented challenge, during which DHF has flourished as an organisation, it is continuing to strengthen its infrastructure and plan for the future.  Martin’s presence on the Board also ensures vital representation from the automated gate sector.
Working in the industry since 1997, Martin is a fierce advocate for safety across the profession.  This passion, and his support for DHF’s clarion call that ‘safe gates save lives’, has enabled him to make a tremendous success of his position as Chairman of the Automated Gate Group, a role he has held since 2019.  

His mission remains that of spreading the message that those with responsibility must be legally compliant, and of the importance of education through training.
DHF’s Head of Commercial Operations, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens said:  
“Martin is a highly skilled and seasoned professional whose objectives are perfectly aligned with our own, Martin possesses a raft of strengths, knowledge and experience that he brings to the Board and we are delighted that he has made this commitment.”  

“Furthermore, his appointment also comes at a time when DHF is celebrating ten years of support for the automated gate sector.”

“Martin’s continuing dedication to DHF and to making the industry safer is widely known, and we are thrilled to have him on board, particularly as this is a voluntary role.” 
Martin adds:
“I am very honoured to have been voted to join the DHF Board and look forward to working with them to ensure that progress in achieving greater standards of safety, continues to be made,” 

“DHF has created an enviable training programme that not only offers accredited training that educates the gate sector, but that of the Industrial & Garage Door sector, and with its collaboration with BRE, fire door sector.  

“It is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected trade associations and its tireless efforts in promoting industry standards are renowned.  I look forward to contributing to their future endeavours.” 
DHF represents all the key players in the following sectors: locks and building hardware, doorsets, industrial doors and shutters, domestic garage doors and automated gates.  

With the ultimate aim of maintaining and raising quality standards throughout the industry, all DHF members must meet minimum standards of competence and customer service. They all operate within a Code of Conduct governing standards of workmanship, quality assurance, training, safety, business integrity and CE marking compliance.
