Managing Director

Anne has been working in the automatic door association industry for the last 15 years, moving on she decided to create a new installer/service/maintenance association, “the ADIA”. This was to give members equal opportunities and to push the automatic door industry forward, gaining exposure and educating other industries.


Membership and Marketing Manager

Laura has worked in associations all of her working life, gaining exposure and discovering new and inventive ways of promoting businesses. Whether it be networking, press, PR or advertising. It is Laura’s job to win publicity for the automatic door sector to educate other industries about the BS EN16005 course and exam, accredited by City & Guilds.


Training and IT Support

Paul organises training of the BS EN16005 and the engineers who are sitting the course and exam, whether it be online or with visual demonstration. Paul also provides IT support to the ADIA, offering assistance to those who are having issues with our online services.


The Automatic Door Installation Association was created by Anne Saxby in 2013. Anne had worked with associations for over 20 years and felt more was needed for the automatic door industry to move forward in developing training and health and safety needs.

Anne was approached by several automatic door companies who felt they were not being represented in the industry and action needed to be taken regarding the BS EN16005 a new British/European standard.

The ADIA was born!

A small technical committee was soon created and developed the BS EN16005 qualification which was accredited by City & Guilds. A small team was created to assist in promoting the association and its members to establishments with automatic pedestrian doors as well as security and access control companies.

From this the ADIA developed the DoorSafe Register which promotes those who have completed the BS EN16005 accreditation including their City & Guilds registration details and company details.

Health and safety with the installation, maintenance, servicing and supply of automatic doors was and is still the main focus.

Since it’s creation, the association has developed several courses including a Fault Finding course and Service and Maintenance to train and extend the knowledge of its members. The ADIA has also pushed the boundaries in promoting health and safety to thousands of businesses across the UK and continues to find ways to do so.

The association and the BS EN16005 accredited by City & Guilds are also recognised by CSCS and SafeContractor.
