Building entrance door type
Automatic Sliding Doors
- Automatic sliding doors can be very accessible as can be used adjacent to accessible paths without guard rails.
- Fully automatic sliding doors, activated by a presence and motion detector that opens door when people approach entrance are the preferred door type for all publicly accessible buildings.
- Automatic doors should open early enough to ensure person approaching is aware. The sensor should ensure door is fully open when person is no closer than 1400mm away.
- Automatic doors should stay open long enough to allow safe entry and exit, especially important for slow moving people such as the elderly.
