This European norm aims at fixing the requirements and test methods for the safety
in use of automatic doors for pedestrians.
The EN16005 sets new safety requirements for installers of automatic doors.
As for sliding doors, the safety must be guaranteed up to 2.5m above the floor, on each side of the leaves.
As for swinging doors, the fast part of the leaf must be safeguarded in order to prevent any contact with people.
