ADSA Code of Practice
It was ADSA who first developed an industry code of practice covering the safety aspects of automatic doors for pedestrian use. This subsequently formed the basis of BS7036: 1988, a code of practice for provision and installation of safety devices for automatic, power operated pedestrian door systems.
With advances in technology and the introduction of new safety devices, ADSA then contributed to the updated standard BS7036: 1996 covering safety at powered doors for pedestrian use. This is complemented by a comprehensive testing programme for the industry's installation and maintenance engineers who undertake operations covered by the standard. All member companies are fully committed to this program. The Association is also actively involved in the formulation of European-wide safety standards.
