ADSA Sponsors Industry Award

The Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) is sponsoring a prestigious award highlighting the best in electronic product design and innovation at the AI Specification Awards 2022.

Next year’s biennial event, which is organised by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), will mark its 40th anniversary.

ADSA is sponsoring the award to support member organisations that offer products and services that straddle traditional architectural ironmongery and electronic/technological solutions. It is part of a wider move to work with other professional and trade organisations for greater resilience and integration. 
Last year, ADSA joined forces with the Door Hardware Federation (DHF) to launch the Entrance Systems Alliance – an assessment centre for technical qualifications. It also supported the GAI members day this summer.
The Product Design and Innovation – Electronic Award, will be judged on effective specification and demonstrate security, accessibility and safety enhancements that also add to aesthetics, functionality and longevity.
To enter, projects or products must have been completed or released on the market between 1 October 2018 and 30 September 2021.
Entries are now open and must be submitted by 19 November 2021. Each category will have a first, second and third placing. The judges will also decide on an overall ‘Winner of Winners’.
Entries should be submitted online at
Said Ken Price, Managing Director of ADSA: 
“We are delighted to sponsor the Product Design and Innovation – Electronic Award. As an association representing the powered pedestrian door industry, we are conscious that entrance solutions frequently consist of manual, electronic and technological products combined. We would actively encourage our members to enter and demonstrate the fantastic design and innovation which is regularly produced by our industry.”
Douglas Masterson, Technical Manager for GAI, added: 
“We are overjoyed to have ADSA sponsor this award and join our judging panel. Following the postponement of last year’s awards, we will be assessing projects completed and products launched over the last three years! The 40th anniversary of the award promises to be bigger and better than ever.”
The Automatic Door Association (ADSA) was formed in 1985 to establish quality and safety standards for the automatic door industry. It developed the first industry code of practice which covered safety aspects of automatic doors for pedestrian use. 

This subsequently formed the basis of BS 7036: 1988, a code of practice for provision and installation of safety devices for automatic, power operated pedestrian door systems. 

Its membership includes manufacturers, suppliers, installers and service providers of automatic doors – from global companies to sole traders. ADSA member organisations supply more than 75% of the UK market.
