Automatic Doors

With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in 1995 it has become commonplace for many shops, offices and public buildings to provide suitable access into these places for less able people.

SLS offer a full range of automatic doors for all applications where this will be a necessity and as many safety factors have to be taken into consideration on the installation of an automated door, this service is supply and fit only. SLS have teamed up with qualified installers of automatic doors to ensure that equipment is fitted fully in accordance with the standards outlined in the DDA.

In brief, the Disability Discrimination Act outlines that any person having a disability should be treated on an equal basis to an able bodied person in employment and where goods and services can be offered to the individual.

From 2004, service providers have to make "reasonable adjustments" to the physical features of their premises to overcome physical barriers to their services. In anticipation of this legal requirement, developers and building managers will want to make these adjustments well before 2004 and should call upon the services architects and designers to find technical solutions to remove physical barriers where the opportunity arises. It goes without saying that SLS can offer this service.

Particular areas of improvement within existing buildings would be any entrance or exit route, fixtures, fittings and furnishings,.
