Domestic Installations

We undertake installations to domestic properties.  These are usually for the less able or elderly customers to allow them to enter exit and move more freely around their homes.

Front and Back Doors
Our front door package allows the resident, carers and family to open the external door automatically, usually by using a key fob transmitter.  This removes the need for keys and eliminates the problem of trying to open the door manually. There are several methods of disengaging the lock and opening the door so each project is carefully designed to meet the specific needs and capabilities of the individual.  For more information on activation methods please click here Activation & Access Control.

Bathrooms
We have a specification which is designed for bathrooms and toilets to be used by less able people. It is simply to use and offers visual indication of when the bathroom is vacant or engaged. The door locks, unlocks and opens automatically from either side by touching a pad. We install an override system so that the door can be opened, even when occupied, in the event of an emergency.  Ideal for disabled washrooms in schools and colleges and also domestic situations where locking is required.

Patio Doors
We have operators available which will automate existing sliding patio doors and one which is designed to be concealed in a cavity so the door can slide into a pre-constructed pocket in the wall.  A perfect solution for bathrooms with sliding doors to view a recently completed project please click here Projects.

Funding
The cost of automating doors is fairly prohibitive for domestic customers and most of our instructions for these types of installations are received from Housing Associations, Occupational Therapists and Social Services. Should your enquiry be for yourself or a relative in need of this type of installation we would recommend that you contact your local authority or social services representative to enquire about financial assistance. If the door is for the SOLE use of the resident we can zero rate the labour cost for VAT.  For information on eligibility and further details please click here Disabled Facilities Grants.
