Thanks to its simple, easy to use, reliable and adaptable design, our disabled persons automatic toilet door locking system (DPTS) is the choice for many automatic door operators.
Using SteriTouch® technology, it is also incredibly clean: the touch switches used to operate the system feature anti-microbial properties in both the label and housing, which is active for the lifetime of the product.
The touch switches are ideal for people who struggle with dexterity because no physical pressure is required. In fact, 50mm proximity can be achieved by increasing the sensitivity. The red and blue status indicators have also been chosen to aid people with visual impairments.
To show that the toilet is engaged, the red indicator will flash – inhibiting the entry sensor. The blue indicator shows that the toilet is vacant.
This system has been installed in local authorities, the House of Lords, the House of Commons, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, plus many more public and private sector buildings.
How it works
When the door is unlocked, users can enter manually, or operate the external sensor for assisted entry. Once inside the cubicle, touching the internal sensor will lock the door. When you are ready to leave, touch the internal sensor again to unlock the door with assisted exit.

Three-sensor, two-door, secure door and radar key entry systems are also available – our remote control and hands-free systems can also be incorporated.
Our most recent installation was the provision of two automatic door units (one for the entrance to the toilets and the other for the inner unit for the disabled toilet door) for a large county council.
Prior to our installation, disabled people using the council premises were unable to access the toilet facilities, but thanks to the automatic toilet doors and DPTS locking system, everyone can use them freely and conveniently.
The disabled toilet locking system can be easily integrated with an existing automatic door, or clients can purchase a new automatic door operating system from Automatic Access.
