How does it work?
Well there are a few factors to consider when looking at how disabled access control systems work. One of them is safety. It’s all in well getting a great push to release access control system on your business but ensuring your customers can access a building safely is another thing. Well Locks Online have found the solution. Your customers can no press a button pad on a wall which will freely open the building door and will not close until the doorway is completely free of obstruction. Not only that, the door will not actually open if there is an obstruction ensuring visitors and people within the building are safe at all times. There are many horror stories out there about children getting squashed behind these electric automatic door openers but don’t stress. There is a fantastic way of preventing this problem by using an infrared safety sensor. You can now ensure safety is a priority when disabled visitors come to your business. As before the most common use for the push to release action is via a bush button on the wall however, that’s not to say it cannot be used with a keypad, proximity reader and fobs and intercom systems. The choices are endless but packages must be made to suit you and your application!
How does this benefit me and my business?
Simply you can allow access to everyone and anyone. Some people may find it hard to open heavy doors, or may find it difficult to enter a building if they have limited movement such as physical and mobility impairments. By you showcasing an access control system where one press of a button can open a door freely, is highly beneficial when thinking about your custom and the public. It shows that everybody is the same regardless of disability. This also prevents you having to hold a door open via a door wedge, holders or catches, which cause problems with fire regulations.
