Automatic doors offer convenient and easy access for all visitors; not just wheelchair users. The elderly and mothers with small children are also major beneficiaries, with studies showing that public buildings with automatic doors attract more footfall than those with manual doors.
We offer solutions for all types of doors including interior, exterior and fire doors to meet our client’s precise accessibility requirements. Our systems enable improved access and assist in complying with elements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). We can also integrate access control where higher levels of security are required. Solutions include:
- Sliding Doors – Single, Bi-Parting or Telescopic
- Swing Doors – Double or Single, Existing or New, Low or High Energy, Full or Semi-Automatic
- Bi-Folding doors
- Replacement aluminium/glass doors and shopfronts
We work closely with aluminium fabricators to offer a full package for those clients who require new door leaves, shop fronts or modifications to the same. However, most existing swing doors can be retrofitted with automation units to offer a solution without the added cost of new door leaves. Every system is installed in full compliance with BS7036 Safety at Automated Pedestrian Doors by our trained Engineers, to ensure the optimum safety for your staff, customers or residents.
Offering a comprehensive range of equipment to enable service providers to comply with Disability Rights Legislation. Integrated Access can provide induction loops for the hard of hearing and platform lifts, portable ramps and call alert systems for customers with a mobility impairment.
Some service providers still view the DDA as simply imposing extra costs and legal obligations. However with more than 20% of the UK population (8.6 million people) having physical, sensory or mental impairments, there is a sound business case for making goods and services more accessible as this can lead to higher turnover and a better service to the community your business serves.
