Doors

Doors present some of the most common accessibility issues.


They may be too “heavy” and require too much force to open. Heavy doors are especially difficult for people with disabilities and seniors with limited upper body strength and/or skills in using their hands. They may close too quickly for some people to pass through easily.


People who move slowly or use mobility devices like wheelchairs or walkers may not be able to pass through fast enough. Luckily, these common problems can often be resolved by simply adjusting door closers.


One of the most common issue we see around schools are door handles that are not of a contrasting colour to the door itself. A reasonable adjustment would be to change the colour of the door handle so it can be seen easily by those with visual impairments.
