Automatic Swing Door Installations & Conversions, Cambridge

Following an accessibility survey by Anglia Ruskin College there was a need to automate 27 doors within Compass House in Cambridge.

This involved carrying out a survey of each door to ensure that the frame and door were suitable for the installation as the Dorma automatic swing operator ED100 operator which weighs 16kg. Also, as part of this we look at risks when the door is operated and initially design out any of these or where they cannot any residual risks are reduced or eliminated. In this case due to the users requiring assistance and possibly using walking aids or wheelchairs, we installed BEA 4Safe on door safety sensors to protect the sweep area of the door. By doing this, it would eliminate the crushing and impact risks so if a person was in this area the door would not touch them.

During the commissioning process we tested the doors for compliance to BSEN16005 and BS7036 and issue a risk assessment checklist.

Majority of the installations are interfaced with the existing access control system and the others have touchless pads mounted adjacent to the doors.
