The Automatic Door Suppliers Association The Assurance of Safety and Quality
Automatic doors are now a normal feature of many building types, from supermarkets to airports and from hotels to hospitals. Although they come in a variety of types, including sliding, swing, folding and revolving, what they all have in common is the need to conform to the highest standards of safety. This is where the ADSA – the Automatic Door Suppliers Association – plays a vital role.
The Automatic Door Suppliers Association represents the common aims of suppliers and installers of door technology products and systems within the automatic door industry. ADSA members operate in retail and commercial premises, the public sector, banks and financial institutions, hotel and leisure facilities, hospitals, schools and airports.
ADSA member companies supply over 90% of the UK market. They can advise on every aspect of automatic doors, from the initial selection and specification through to installation in order to ensure that clients end up with the right type of door for their particular requirements.
“The basic questions users should ask are – will the installation comply with British Standard 7036:1996 covering safety of powered doors for pedestrian use and the guidelines laid down by ADSA which cover both the provision and fitting of safety devices? Are these devices being offered as standard equipment? Is the supplier able to offer the required after-sales support, including a long-term maintenance agreement? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then the supplier is probably not an ADSA member.”
