Improved Accessibility With Automatic Doors

With the need for disability friendly systems and full accessibility growing every day, there’s never been a better time to install an automatic door! As per the guidelines of the Equality Act 2010, all businesses must be fully accessible for disabled people. Because of this, more business owners than ever are choosing to make an investment in automation. In fact, automatic doors are one of the most versatile installations on the market due to their ability to function everywhere from hospitals to shopping centres. In addition to this, automatic doors are sleek and stylish which can add an aesthetic flair to the exterior of a building. Full accessibility means that both fully abled and disabled people can easily access a building or service without requiring additional support or assistance. This extends to the full range of different physical and developmental conditions that people may have, not just the most common or visible disabilities. Automatic doors, wheelchair ramps, and low set lift buttons are all examples of accessibility features designed to allow easy access for disabled people. Of course, the accessibility of your site is only maintained as long as your accessibility features are well looked after and full functioning! A broken automatic door may be even more difficult for a disabled person to operate than a manual door would be. This is why it is vital for good accessibility to ensure your automatic doors and shutters stay in tip-top condition and any signs of potential damage are dealt with immediately. In order to help with this, we offer a high-quality planned preventative maintenance contract service to help you keep on top of maintenance and repairs! Having a planned preventative maintenance contract will help you to tackle repairs whilst they are minor in order to prevent expensive and invasive restoration work later down the line. After all, the quicker that a fault is dealt with, the easier it will be to rectify.
