Our DDA compliant doors are fitted with signage to demonstrate the door is either automatic or an Assisted Door. We fit push pad door entry access control equipment at the perfect height for wheelchair users and ensure the correct width for easy access.

All fully automatic doors have safety sensors fitted to ensure the door cannot close while someone is crossing the threshold. With battery back-up systems or uninterrupted power supplies; in the event of a power failure, all sliding automatic doors are still fully operational in an emergency – they can be linked to a fire alarm system.

Organisations, employers, shops, local authorities and schools must take reasonable steps to remove the barriers faced by anyone with a disability. As much as possible, everyone should receive the same service, regardless of ability.

The Equality Act 2010 states changes or adjustments should be made to ensure anyone can access the following:

  • Education facilities
  • Places of employment
  • Housing
  • Goods and services like shops, banks, cinemas, hospitals, council offices, leisure centres, etc
  • Associations and private clubs
