Power Operated Doors
It is against the Law to install a power operated garage door in the UK without complying with The Machinery Directive.
To comply with the Machinery Directive both the door and the operator used in the Installation must have a declaration of Incorporation from the manufacturer.
On completion of the installation the Installer must provide a Declaration of conformity and apply a CE mark giving details of the installation to the door / operator combination, which is now classed as a machine.

Please ensure for your own safety and peace of mind that whoever installs your electric operator is both willing and able to fulfil these requirements; if they are not - do not use them!
Members of the DHF Garage Door Installer Group CAN and WILL install your operator safely and legally.
