Fully Automatic Doors
Automatic swing doors are used in a variety of situations. They can be triggered by any method which sends an activation signal to the operator/s.
The revised regulations, EN16005, have increased the levels of safety required for automatic doors. Previously doors which required the user to activate the door, usually by pressing a push pad required less safety features to be compliant. Under the new guidelines any door which may be used by infirm, elderly or disabled users must be fitted with full safety features. Automatic doors activated by push pads can still be used as manual doors by the able bodied as the resistance posed by the operator is no more than a standard manual door closer.
All automatic doors are a perfect solution for compliance with the Equality Act 2010, click here for more information.

- Full on-door safety to prevent accidental striking of pedestrians
