Accessible Automatic Swing Door for the National Trust at Anglesey Abbey – Cambridge

Following a DDA accessible audit by the National Trust at Angelsey Abbey in Cambridge, we automated an existing timber door into the Staff Room.

The aim was to provide easier access for all without the need to touch the door by means of remote activation push pads as people were finding it difficult to open the door manually.

The installation comprised of a Dorma ED100 automatic swing operator which was installed above the door onto the transom.

At BH Doors, we select products that will allow integration with your existing access control, fire alarm and locking, to minimise disruption, not to compromise security and save money.

It is important that all installations of automatic doors have any risks designed out or any residual risks reduced to a safe level.

The key is to survey and understand your requirements prior to quotation and installation. The main benefit here is that the installation can be carried out quicker and more cost effective as you do not need to purchase a complete door system.

So, we installed a fingerguard at the hinge point of the door to eliminate the risk of trapping fingers. 

Also, there are BEA 4safe on door safety sensors installed to both sides of the door to reduce the risk of the door opening or closing onto a person within the sweep area of the door.

On completion, the installation is subject to a risk Assessment Checklist as part of compliance to EN16005 and BS7036.

Our aftercare package includes 12 months warranty and a service contract which includes two visits per year.

Our servicing is based upon and consists of –

  • Booked visits at your convenience
  • Schedule of work to be carried out
  • Health and Safety compliance
  • Checklist for your records
