Automatic door installer and service engineer

Prepare and safely carry out work activities in door automation

In this role, you’ll learn to work on a range of powered doors, such as sliding, swing, folding, balanced and revolving, which provide barrier-free building access, building security and user comfort, while contributing to meeting environmental obligations. Installations can take place on new building sites, during refurbishment of buildings and in already-occupied buildings. Your key activities will include the installation, routine maintenance, fault finding and repair, commissioning and decommissioning of automatic doors. You’ll develop a thorough understanding of the engineering principles and safe operation of automatic doors. You’ll work without immediate supervision, and liaise effectively with other trades and with end-users. Ensuring that automatic doors used by the general public and employees are efficient and safe to use is a key responsibility.
