Many of our customers are semi ambulant or wheelchair bound. Wheelchair users find it particularly difficult to use a swing door as it is not possible to get close enough to the door to open it from a wheelchair. This results in many people becoming effectively trapped in their own homes or being denied access to premises that do not have automatic doors.
Our standard system for a domestic front door allows the user to unlock and open the door using a hand held transmitter which works from both sides of the door, they never have to lock or unlock the door manually or even touch the door itself. For our clients who do not have use of their hands we have a system which allows them to unlock and open the door just by going near it.
For domestic installations we work mainly with occupational therapists, councils and housing associations. For private clients who wish to automate their doors due to health reasons there may be a grant available through their local council, this is means tested.
