ADSA Launches New Podcast

It’s good to talk! So says the Automatic Door Suppliers Association which has just launched its own podcast – Tech Talk.

The series will feature conversations on topical issues facing the industry and interviews with those who work in it.

The first episode focuses on changes to BS EN 16 005 – a standard that defines safety in use and test methods requirements for power operated pedestrian door sets. It teases out the main changes of the update and responsibilities that fall upon manufacturers and technicians.

The 10-minute discussion is hosted by ADSA MD Ken Price, in conversation with Technical Training Manager Darren Hyde and Head of Operations Fae Ellor.

The monthly podcast is available through Apple and Android streaming services and can also be accessed through the ADSA website and social media channels. ADSA members can also access episodes through its online Academy.

Tech Talk has been introduced as an extension to ADSA’s existing communication channels and its availability on public streaming channels is intended to make it more accessible to “people on the go”.

Said Ken:

“We felt that this was an ideal medium for many of our members, particularly technicians, who may be on the road travelling to different sites. Podcasts provide a bite-sized opportunity to raise awareness of key issues, in a way that can be informative and entertaining.

“People consume media in different ways and at different times – from their daily commute to when they are exercising. By producing Tech Talk as a podcast, we hope to highlight important issues, break them down and examine them in detail but in a way that is easy to access and provides a different take on a variety of subjects.”

It is planned that some episodes of Tech Talk will also be produced as video casts to incorporate visual requirements.

The first episode of Tech Talk can be accessed via and through streaming platforms.
