EN 16005 standard for automatic building doors

Effective from April 2013, the new EN 16005 standard covers power-operated pedestrian door equipment such as sliding, swing and revolving door sets, including balanced and folding doors. Key aspects include the requirement for building owners to ensure doors covered by the standard are properly maintained for safety, long-term reliability and efficiency. It also sets requirements for maintenance record keeping, and improved safeguards to prevent crushing and impact injuries.
