ADSA Promotes The Highest Standards In Automatic Doors

Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA)

ADC Entrance Solutions are a long standing member of ADSA, but what does that mean for you? Well, it means you can be assured that all our engineers are highly qualified and working to strict standards in the industry.

ADSA was established in 1985 to ensure that its member companies provide top-notch safety levels for pedestrian automatic doors.

ADSA’s main goal is to uphold the highest standards in automatic doors and assist specifiers and customers in finding the most suitable solution for their needs. The organization was responsible for creating the industry code of practice, which focuses on the safety aspects of automatic doors for pedestrian use. This code later served as the foundation for BS 7036: 1988, a code of practice for the provision and installation of safety devices for automatic, power-operated pedestrian door systems.

As technology progressed and new safety devices were introduced, ADSA updated the standard to BS 7036: 1996, which covers the safety of powered doors for pedestrian use. This was accompanied by a written test for individuals in the industry involved in operations covered by The British Standard.

Automatic Door Suppliers Association plays an active role in shaping European-wide standards, leading to the creation of standard BS EN 16005 – 2012, replacing BS 7036 in April 2013. All members are fully dedicated to this standard and its associated testing.

ADSA member companies dominate over 75% of the UK market. They offer guidance on all aspects of automatic doors, from initial selection and specification to installation, ensuring that clients receive the right type of door for their specific needs.

Automatic doors not only enhance aesthetics but also help regulate climate control in entrance areas, providing a functional solution for individuals of all ages and abilities, especially when in compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and the Equality Act 2010.
