Doors and Gates

Audit and Certification of Doors and Gates

In public, private, and commercial buildings or in emergency exits and evacuation routes, safety is a decisive factor when it comes to power-operated or physically maneuvered doors and gate systems. In an emergency, it may even mean the difference between a life or death situation. We audit the mechanical and electrical safety or your products based on statutory requirements, such as current directives and norms, or according to your specific wishes. Amongst other things, we inspect your product's conformity with applicable norms, including such as DIN EN 12604, DIN EN 12605, DIN EN 12445, DIN EN 12453, and DIN 18650-1 and 2
