ADIA BS EN16005 Refresher Course
Accredited by City & Guilds

This City & Guilds accredited ADIA BS EN16005 refresher course has been designed to renew knowledge of the BS EN 16005:2012  (Power operated pedestrian doorsets) and the BS 7036-0:2014. The accreditation is for four years and therefore a refresher should be completed within that time to ensure cards and certificates can be renewed. 
By law, any automatic door has to be legally compliant with the Machine Directive and The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, which are legal regulations, therefore, completing the BS EN16005 course and renewing the training every four years would take you one step closer towards this compliance.  The course provides learners with an online Health & Safety test, online study material, an online assessment form and online exam.

What is the BS EN16005?

Stated within the BS EN16005:

This European Standard specifies requirements regarding design and test methods for external and internal power operated pedestrian doorsets. Such doorset constructions may be operated electro-mechanically, electro-hydraulically or pneumatically.

This European Standard covers safety in use of power operated pedestrian doorsets used for normal access as well as in escape routes and as fire resistance and/or smoke control doorsets.

The type of doorsets covered include power operated pedestrian sliding, swing and revolving doorsets, including balanced doorsets and folding doorsets with a horizontally moving leaf.

Power operated pass doorsets incorporated in other doorsets for which the main intended use is giving safe access for persons are covered by the scope of this European Standard.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to power operated doorsets when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Annex J).
