Comech Engineering can offer disabled access doors that meet all lawful requirements and help give the disabled better access to buildings and we offer this service all over Northern Ireland.
The Disability Discrimination Act introduced new laws and measures aimed at ending the discrimination that many people with disabilities face.
Part 3 of the Act which came into force on 1st October 2004 relates to the built environment and places duty upon service providers to make reasonable adjustments to the physical features of their premises to overcome barriers to access. It applies to all those who provide services to the public irrespective of their size.
Regulations define the term “physical features” to include anything on the premises arising from the building’s design or construction, or from an approach to, exit from or access to such a building: Fixtures, fittings, furnishings, equipment or materials and any other physical element or quality of land on the premises. All of these are covered whether temporary or permanent.
Those who are commissioning new buildings or adaptations to existing buildings are advised to consider the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in terms of their ability to employ or offer goods and services to all people on an equal basis.
Comech has a range of Doors and Closers that will provide compliance to the DDA and compliment any building public, private or place of work.
