Automatic Swing Door installation, Gibson Building University of Oxford

Following a DDA accessible audit by Oxford University Estates, there was requirement to automate an existing timber door to provide wheelchair access though the building.

The installation comprised of a Record DFA127 swing operator activated by the access control system and push pad to exit.

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. The key is to survey and understand your requirements prior to quotation and installation.

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