As a business owner, AAADM should be an important acronym to keep in mind. Before we get ahead of ourselves, what does AAADM even stand for? The American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers.
AAADM defines themselves as “a trade association of power-operated automatic door manufacturers” with the aim to “raise public awareness about automatic doors and administer a program to certify automatic door inspectors” and insure all existing doors meet existing ANSI 1560.10 Safety Standards through the latest technology and safety devices.
Automatic door safety is an important factor especially when it involves a building such as a hospital or somewhere that children frequently visit. Regardless of if your building qualifies as one of the above mentioned or not, it is still important to maintain your automatic doors. We’ll agree that seeing someone walk smack into a glass door can be funny; so long as they aren’t hurt of course. However if it’s your business’s door that didn’t open, it may not be as funny when a lawsuit shows up at that same door.
If your automatic door needs to be serviced or repaired make sure to look for the AAADM certification logo on a website. You don’t want your malfunctioning door to be the next viral YouTube video.
At Vortex, we uphold our standards for safety, which is why we made it a point to have over 100 certified AAADM inspectors on staff. Contact your closest Vortex service center today if you are in need of automatic door servicing or repair.
