Solutions for Doors, Gates & Barriers
Find out the precise force involved to ensure safe and easy access.
Conform to industry standards e.g. BSI and ANSI and consistently achieve compliance to DDA and building regulations.
Do you know the precise force which?
- A door, gate or barrier might strike an operator or bystander
- An operator must apply to a manually-operated door, gate or barrier to ensure it opens or closes
Why test doors, gates and barriers?
Any type of access poses a safety risk as it can fail to open or close at the most crucial moment. General wear and tear inevitably creates an inherent danger to users, who are unaware of the damage these elements can cause, should they fail to operate or become defective.
The performance of doors, gates and barriers are dependent upon their intended function, be it an emergency door or manual access mechanism. Considerations should not only include standards of compliance, but also the differing capacity level of users, for example, the elderly, children and the disabled.
