Powered doors are a great solution to increased accessibility and convenience. Under the Equality Act 2010, public buildings and places of employment are legally obliged to consider the effect of accessibility on disabled people or wheelchair users, removing any physical barriers which may limit ease of access.
One such solution which many organisations have turned to is the implementation of automatically opening doors. These ensure that free access is granted to everyone and that the ‘physical barrier’ of the door is removed. In locations where higher security is necessary, our powered doors can be integrated with access control systems; these are then implemented in a way that is not only secure but easy to use for wheelchair users.
