Automatic Sliding Doors

Energy efficient and secure sliding door systems

An automatic sliding door operator is a device that operates a sliding door for pedestrian use. It opens the door automatically, waits, then closes it.

The Lloyd Worrall range of automatic sliding door operators are safe, secure, flexible and reliable for a wide range of applications where convenience of pedestrian access is important, for example hospitals, office buildings and hotel entrances.

In many cases we can seamlessly integrate our sliding door operators with our access control and ironmongery products, streamlining the specification process and providing simple, easier to use systems for the end-user.

Installation Services

Lloyd Worrall offer supply and installation of automatic door operators utilising our ADSA approved engineers. All installations are carried out to comply with the recommendations of BS EN 16005 (safety in use of automatic doors for pedestrian use).

Automatic doors aren’t just aesthetically pleasing. They can help regulate climate control in an entrance area whilst also offering a functional solution for people of all ages and abilities, particularly when viewed in compliance with the Equality Act 2010.

BS EN 16005

BS EN 16005 is the European Standard that is the code of practice for safety in use of automatic doors for pedestrian use. All pedestrian automatic doors installed since April 2013 should comply with the BS EN 16005.

There are important considerations when installing automatic doors and advice can be sought from ADSA members of which Lloyd Worrall is a member.

Lloyd Worrall can advise on every aspect of automatic doors, from the initial selection and specification, through to installation in order to ensure that clients end up with the right type of door for their requirements.

Automatic Door Suppliers Association Limited

ADSA Logo

ADSA was formed in 1985 for the purpose of ensuring that its member companies offer superior levels of safety for pedestrian automatic doors.

ADSA exists to promote the highest standards in automatic doors and to help specifiers and customers obtain the best solution for their requirements. ADSA first developed the industry code of practice. This covers the safety aspects of automatic doors for pedestrian use. This subsequently formed the basis of BS 7036: 1988, a code of practice for provision and installation of safety devices for automatic, power operated pedestrian door systems.

With advances in technology and the introduction of new safety devices, ADSA then developed to the updated standard BS 7036: 1996 covering safety of powered doors for pedestrian use. This was complemented by a written test taken by anyone involved in the industry who undertakes operations covered by The British Standard.

ADSA is actively involved in the formulation of European-wide standards. This resulted in standard BS EN 16005 – 2012, which replaced BS 7036 in April 2013. All members are fully committed to this standard and its associated testing.

ADSA member companies supply over 75% of the UK market.
