automatic doors and ADSA
#1
afternoon, we engineers have been told we now look after automatic sliding doors as well as all the fire and security stuff and there is some confusion over what training is needed to work on these systems. do you need to be ADSA qualified? Is there anything legally you have to do before you work on them? We've been told we will get training but I severely doubt it!

Not under the fire regs I would have thought. I looked after some automatic doors but didn`t have any training was easy really

I looked into this a few years ago for powered openers and if I remember rightly (and this may have be different for sliders) but i think it depends on the power of the door. There are different levels of power, and if the door is a high power, you need specific competency certification.
