ADSA Training Offers Gateway to Turnstile Standard

  • 1 Jun 2023

The Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) is launching a new training course as a ‘gateway’ to a new standard that regulates power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment such as powered turnstiles, swing lanes and retractable lanes.

The introduction of BS/I.S. EN 17352:2022* is the first standard for this product group. It addresses industry concerns about safety in use and sets out a machinery safety standard: requirements and test methods, to ensure systems are safe.

ADSA‘s standards accreditation outlines its requirements, ensuring all systems can be correctly specified, fitted, inspected, and maintained and enables employees and their employers to demonstrate their knowledge of the safety requirements and test methods within this product group.

Having already been piloted, the first of the day-long sessions will take place in June. This will be a classroom-based course, initially for ADSA members who already have ADSA PPD standards accreditation. However, it will subsequently be rolled out to others, and sales, project staff and technicians are encouraged to take part.



‘Increasing demand’

Darren Hyde, ADSA’s technical and training manager, comments: “There has been an increasing demand for products of this type and it seems only right to bring them in line with safety standards for the wider industry.  

“These products can be operated electro-mechanically or electro-hydraulically and can be used for normal access as well as in escape routes and emergency exits. So, it is critical that they are properly specified, installed and maintained.

“Many leading manufacturers, who are already ADSA members, include them within their existing products ranges, while as a result of the introduction of the standard, we have seen new members join us whose businesses are solely within power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment.

“We feel that this new course will meet the needs of many who work with the industry, across different roles and at different levels. It will also provide public confidence in those companies that have acquired accreditation and can evidence their competence.”

The course costs £190 including examination. For more information visit:
