As a business owner, you want to make sure your business is accessible to everyone. People living without disabilities may take for granted the things that oftentimes function as barriers for individuals with disabilities. Making the doors of your business ADA-compliant can make your business available to a wider range of customers and employees while demonstrating your commitment to social responsibility. It also makes your business more accessible to the aging Baby Boomer population.
At Bloomington Security Solutions in Minnesota, we can help your business become ADA compliant by installing door hardware that’s accessible to all of your guests. We’ve put together this guide to cover some of the options available for handicap operators.
1. Wireless or Hardwired Doors
Wireless or hardwired ADA-compliant doors offer a low-energy option that can be combined with a push plate. They’re user-friendly and can be placed at the appropriate height for easy access by individuals in wheelchairs. They also include a sensor to prevent the door from closing on anyone still passing through.
Bollards or posts offer one of the most easy-to-use accessible door options available. For individuals with limited mobility, having a pedestal that’s easy to access and requires only light pressure to activate can significantly increase accessibility. They work with wireless doors to provide instant access.
ADA-compliant door openers can also be mounted to the wall. Your customers will be able to use a low-pressure plate that gives them plenty of time to move through the door opening. At Bloomington Security Solutions, we’re familiar with ADA regulations for the correct height and door width spacing.
4. Access Control Interfaced
If access control and security are a concern, we can also interface your ADA-compliant door operator with your organization’s access control features. Whatever locking device you rely on, your ADA door can coordinate with the security features that protect your business.
