First in the UK

BS EN 16005 is the European Standard for power operated pedestrian door sets and has been approved by CEN as the guide for safety in use as well as requirements and test methods.

All pedestrian automatic doors installed post April 2013 should comply with the BS EN 16005. There are important considerations when installing automatic doors and professional advice can be gained by calling Check Your Security who are based in Norfolk, East Anglia,  where a fully trained, accredited technician will guide you through all requirements and considerations.


ADSA (Automatic Door Supplier Association) has developed the BS EN 16005 examination to ensure that member’s employees understand and comply with it. Check Your Security sent five of its engineers to be trained on the standards and were the first company in the UK and achieve this standard. 

“It is crucial that our personnel understand the regulations and the options available to ensure we comply with these standards. Our customers expect us to clearly understand all options and offer the correct solution to ensure that they comply with current safety regulations.” Wayne Dyble Installation & Support Manager Check Your Security Ltd
