DDA Requirements

Your automatic doors must be DDA-compliant by law. At The Automatic Door Company, we’ve installed DDA doors for a range of clients in various retail outlets, private businesses and public sector organisations. Our experience installing disabled access doors ensures the highest quality a the best price as we design, manufacture and install all of our automatic doors in-house.

The Disability Discrimination Act

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) applies to all organisations including small businesses with fewer than 15 employees. Outlining that the building should be accessible to anyone who may need to use the premises at any point.

The DDA ensures that people with disabilities are not restricted from accessing the following:

● Everyday goods and services e.g. local council services, healthcare services, banks and pubs etc.
● Private facilities.
● Important social goods and services e.g. healthcare, housing, education, and transport.

The Risks Of Non-Compliance

If an organisation does not address access issues in and around a building, the implications can be serious, ranging from heavy compensation claims to complete closure of a business.

The Automatic Door Company supplies a wide range of DDA compliant access solutions, such as automatic doors and complete access control systems. It is important to provide easy access for all people to enter your building. Access should not compromise security, we work hard to ensure we work towards being DDA compliant whilst maintaining the level of security your business requires.
