Supplying Automatic Doors for Healthcare Settings

Healthcare professionals expect to receive members of the public who are at their most vulnerable. Whether they are dealing with an illness or attending for physiotherapy, visitors range from babies in pushchairs to elderly people and everything in between, so the facilities should be in place to cater for any eventuality.

When you go to the hospital you might take it for granted that you will be greeted by automatic doors, but the same cannot always be said for smaller GP surgeries. Yet many patients experience concerns about how they might tackle a heavy door, especially if they are unaccompanied, and this could serve to deter them from seeking the assistance they require.

GP surgeries, dental practices and other healthcare providers are being encouraged to provide easier access into and around their buildings and facilities for their more vulnerable visitors. Automatic doors also help to ensure that surgeries comply with the Disability Discrimination Act, which dictates that there should be no physical barriers to prevent people with disabilities from accessing services.

Here at Downham Doors we manufacture all of our automatic doors in-house, which gives us the flexibility to design them around any requirements. If you don’t feel that new doors are necessary but still wish to comply with government recommendations, it is also possible for us to integrate power assistance systems into existing doors.
