Power Assisted Doors

Power assisted doors are key to meeting building legislations

One of the key elements in meeting the various forms of building legislation and standards in force today, including the stringent requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act, is the provision of safe and effective access to buildings. Creating an accessible entrance from the street is only the beginning of the task. From 1st October 2004, it became necessary to remove physical barriers that prevent people with disabilities from using a service. This means that they should be able to move freely and conveniently throughout the entire building. This means that doorways between rooms, those leading to corridors and into toilets and lift areas can be negotiated with ease. Central to providing such freedom of movement is the provision of correctly identified door types and access controls.

Access control systems can control whether the doors operate using the keypad/card reader or whether they are operated via a movement detector for free access and egress of the site. If you have an existing access control system on a manual set of doors and you want to add the automatic openers then speak to one of our design consultants in the office.

How can Contact Fire and Security help?

Contact Fire and Security understand the requirements of the DDA specification and are able to advise on the correct, and most cost effective way to meet these requirements. For example, an easy and cost effective way to meet DDA standards, is to automate existing swing door entrances with a low energy automatic operator and push button control (provided that the existing entrance meets the minimum opening width requirement). This enables the door to be operated either manually (i.e. in the usual way), or by the button located close to the door, both outside and inside. We have client such as The University of Oxford and Regents Park College as well as other local businesses and health centres.
