  • Steeper assistive technology engineers stay current with Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) qualification

    With stringent rules and regulations being implemented within the assistive technology industry, it has become even more important to maintain training in line with the latest preferences, regulations and specifications.

    Steeper, a long-term assistive technology supplier, provide a range of environmental control products to enable independence for users in their homes and reduce their reliance on care. From door openers to window, blind and curtain control along with a range of remotes and switch access devices, Steeper has it covered. One of the most popular products are door openers – often installed in residential facilities in communal areas. On the whole, door openers have an average lifespan of 8 years, making annual checks and regular maintenance essential to guaranteeing safety.

    By completing the Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) course, Steeper engineers are in a strong position to be able to maintain and service all the door openers supplied, as they are fully conversant with the current regulations and are qualified to service door openers.

    The ADSA course is well recognised in the industry, designed with both the engineer and the end user in mind and intended to promote safety and long-term aftercare.

    “ADSA has developed the BS EN 16005 examination to ensure that members’ employees understand and comply with it. The resulting Authorised Technician qualification is the only industry standard recognised across the construction industry, local authorities and automatic door users. Automatic doors are now a normal feature of all building types, large and small. They come in a variety of types, including sliding, swing, folding and revolving – what they all must do is conform to the highest standards of safety for the user. This is where the ADSA – Automatic Door Suppliers Association – plays a vital role.” ADSA – For more information, please visit http://www.adsa.org.uk/
