  • Australian Standard AS: 5007 – 2007 ‘Powered doors for pedestrian access and egress’ is endorsed by AADIF as an Australian Standard promoting industry best practice and sets out new performance, safety, maintenance and testing requirements for all automatic pedestrian doors including sliding doors, swing doors, folding doors and revolving doors.
  • Australian Standard AS1428 “Design for access and mobility, Part 1’.
  • The National Code of Compliance – Building Code of Australia (BCA), clauses D2.19 and D.2.21.
  • The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), which directly references the BCA and AS1428

Working with NATA accredited building product laboratories

AS5007 clause 4.6 ‘Verification of Compliance’ requires all powered door operators to be NATA tested to comply with clause 4.4.1.1 and 4.4.2 and a NATA test report is your reassurance that the product you are purchasing has been independently tested and validated.

The tests ensure verification and validation of high quality products – engineered to suit their stated maximum door weight, designed to operate under extreme temperature conditions and critically designed to open doors at this maximum door weight under loss of mains power to permit safe egress/escape.

AS5007 – Clause 4.4.1.1a minimum 1 million cycle endurance test
AS5007 – Clause 4.4.1.1b & c – minimum 1000 cycles at -15 degress and + 50 degrees Celsius
AS5007 – Clause 4.4.2a – minimum 40 cycles when subjected to mains power failure
