After every installation, we offer and like to insist on training as many of the end users as is possible, even if it means a return visit to offer a group training session. We have found through experience that we are able to make the use of automatic doors much more trouble free for the end users (the people that would change modes of operation, staff, managers etc).
This is a very informal site meeting and will provide a good degree of confidence for staff on site. Staff will be shown how to change various settings and what to do in the event of mains power failures, fire alarm activations or vandalism / damage. Naturally, any questions and concerns can be addressed at this stage.
Automatic doors & connection to Fire Alarms
We always recommend that you connect automatic sliding doors to fire alarms where applicable in order to comply with fire regulations and to ensure a less troublesome emergency egress from the building occurs. Upon activation of the fire alarm the doors will fly open and stay open until the fire alarm is reset.
Regulations for Scotland are slightly different and a break out system is often required to comply to fire regulations in Scotland. please check with your local fire officer if you are unsure.
we can leave a connection point locally for your fire alarm company to connect into and that can be connected at any point in future, but we do recommend that you have your automatic sliding door connected to the fire alarm as soon as possible.
Automatic Sliding doors & Mains power Failures
A built in battery pack will make the doors fly open in the event of a mains failure and will stay open until mains is restored. The user still has the facility to manually open & close the doors if required.
We can also provide you with the option of having full battery backup operation during mains off situations.
because the battery system is monitored, the doors will continue to operate right up until there is not enough power left to safely operate. At that point, the doors will open one last time and then stay open until mains power is restored.

Automatic Sliding door warranties
Our latest sliding operator range comes as standard with a 2 year warranty on the electronic processor, motor and battery backup system, and we offer to extend this warranty period for a further 6 months if you have the equipment serviced at the end of the initial 1 year period.
Safety Compliance of automatic sliding doors
All our automatic door systems comply to BS7036 ( safety at powered doors for pedestrian use ) and now also comply to the new European safety standard BS EN 16005:2012. Whilst this is only a guide it is a good safety standard to work from, all our automatic door operators are CE rated and marked accordingly.
There are a few additions and differences, but the prime difference is that devices like safety and activation sensors are monitored by the main control circuit board. Unfortunately not all sensors can be monitored, such as photocells and then wireless activation devices are not monitored either.
Many door companies are not complying with these new standards yet as they are using up old stocks of sensors that have been mass purchased. The new safety standards allow for the use of old stocks.
