Door Power Standards

Door standards from the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association address a range of features and characteristics of doors. Covering door controls, hanging, locking, trimming, power assist, and other standards, this set comes together to provide a comprehensive toolkit for manufacturers to create hardware that designers and users can depend on with a focus on reliability and interoperability. These standards are related to power systems for automated doors.

ANSI/BHMA A156.10-2017

Power Operated Pedestrian Doors

Requirements in this Standard apply to power operated doors for pedestrian use which open automatically when approached by pedestrians and some small vehicular traffic or by a knowing act. Included are provisions to reduce the chance of user injury or entrapment. Power operated doors for industrial or trained traffic are not covered in this Standard.

Included are provisions to reduce the chance of user injury or entrapment. Power operated doors for industrial or trained traffic are not covered in this Standard.

ANSI/BHMA A156.19-2019

Power Assist And Low Energy Power Operated Swinging Doors

Requirements in this Standard apply only to swing door operators. The operator types are power assist, and low energy power operators, for pedestrian use, and some small vehicular use. It does not address doors, finish or hardware. The activation of all doors described in this standard requires a knowing act. Included are provisions intended to reduce the chance of user injury or entrapment. These products are intended to improve accessibility.

ANSI/BHMA A156.19-2019

Power Assist And Low Energy Power Operated Swinging Doors

Requirements in this Standard apply only to swing door operators. The operator types are power assist, and low energy power operators, for pedestrian use, and some small vehicular use. It does not address doors, finish or hardware. The activation of all doors described in this standard requires a knowing act. Included are provisions intended to reduce the chance of user injury or entrapment. These products are intended to improve accessibility.

ANSI/BHMA A156.27-2019

Power And Manual Operated Revolving Pedestrian Doors

Requirements in this standard apply to power operated revolving type doors which rotate automatically when approached by pedestrians, some small vehicular use, and manual revolving type doors for pedestrians. Included are provisions to reduce the chance of user injury and entrapment. Where this standard contains specifications relating to maximum and minimum dimensions of various components of revolving doors for pedestrian use and some small vehicular traffic, such dimensions are included to provide user protection for what are in the industry, standard application conditions. This standard does not attempt to assess any factors that exist with respect to custom installations.
