BS EN 16005 is the European Standards that is the code of practice for safety in use of automatic doors for pedestrian use. All pedestrian doors installed after April 2013 must comply with the BS EN 16005 Standard. The standard is an industry guidance document created to help companies meet the requirements of the machine directive and forms part of the CE marking process. It gives practical advice on safety systems and best practice for ensuring automatic doors are installed with acceptable levels of safety for users.

Under the machine directive, automatic doors must be operated safely – safe for employees and any users who may enter the business, the doors needs to be maintained in accordance with the guidance from the manufacturer. Failing to ensure automatic doors are safe may lead to a penalty if any injuries or accidents were to occur.

Following the introduction of the new standard ADSA offer a BS EN 16005 training course and examination to those working within the industry.

20 ADC employees completed the course in January 2016, with a further 10 attending in November. This included our installations and service engineers as well as our estimating team, account managers, design team and project managers. The course involves a day and half of training/ increasing awareness of the standard and an examination on the second day ensuring employees understand and are able to comply with the standard.

We require those in our team to hold an ADSA authorised technician card if they are quoting for, surveying, installing, servicing or repairing automatic doors as part of their job.

Here at ADC, we are committed to a continual training plan for our staff to ensure they are fully trained and competent to work safely in a variety of industry environments. We are committed to ensuring we can meet the needs and demands of all our customers, as well as ensuring our staff are safe at all times and comfortable in any working environment.
