Automatic Door Engineers – The BS EN16005 Standard has been updated

What is the BS EN16005? - The BS EN16005 is a European Standard that specifies safety requirements for the design, manufacture, and installation of power-operated pedestrian doorsets. 

It came into play in 2012 but has had some recent updates as of December 2023. And you need to know them.

The standard is to address and mitigate risks posed by automatic doors to users who may encounter them. It also serves as a benchmark for quality and safety in the industry, offering guidance on best practices and helping to ensure that automatic doors are accessible, reliable, and safe for all users.

The Automatic Door Installation Association recognises the cruciality of this continuous professional development, responding to the vocal demand from its membership for a succinct yet detailed course that navigates the transition between the BS EN16005:2012 and its updated successor, BS EN16005:2023. Which is why we have implemented it into our training program.

Standard Updates FREE Course

Created to help auto door professionals with a rapid, yet in-depth, grasp of the revisions within BS EN16005:2023, the ADIA’s course meticulously dissects the distinctions between it and its 2012 forerunner. 

This course highlights the updated requirements pivotal for every expert within the sector to comprehend. Nevertheless, it’s pivotal to acknowledge that this course serves as an add-on to those who have completed the more exhaustive ADIA BS EN16005 Course previously.

In order to assist engineers with recognising these changes, we have created a free course for members who have previously completed the BS EN16005 course accredited by City & Guilds and are within their four-year qualification tenure.

Booking and Course Integration

For engineers keen on taking on this opportunity, enrolment is easy and accessible through the ADIA’s course booking portal

In a move to ensure the relevance and comprehensiveness of its educational offerings, we have also woven these updates into the existing BS EN16005 course, guaranteeing that all materials are both current and inclusive.
