In September 2007, Standards Australia released a new automatic door standard entitled AS 5007, powered doors for pedestrian access and egress. Replacing the 1992 Standard AS 4085, the new Standard focuses on standardizing the “design, installation, test and safety requirements of all automatic pedestrian door assemblies.”
The Dorma EL301 and HD operators are the first automatic sliding door operators compliant and accredited with AS 5007. They are certified by an independent NATA-accredited laboratory, receiving the NATA Certificate – AS 5007. The test included a 1,000,000 continuous cycle test at maximum door weight and 2,000 cycles in a temperature-controlled chamber.
