Low Energy, or Handicap doors, make it as easy as possible for people with disabilities and the elderly to navigate places of interest such as restaurants, banks, schools, hotels, doctor’s offices, condominium complexes, and beyond. The goal behind having ANSI 156.19 compliant installations is to eliminate discrimination and allow individuals to enter businesses freely. Primary considerations behind Low Energy doors involve clearance widths, hardware choices, range of motion, and closing speeds.
If you are a business owner, understand that handicap ADA doors are a necessity for visitors to your location. At OL Door Systems, we strive to bring our customers solutions for improving mobility and convenience in commercial spaces through our expertise in installing, repairing, and servicing ADA doors.
ADA Automatic Doors and Speed Settings
It is vital to give guests a sufficient amount of time to enter and exit. As such, ANSI Standards have been set to guide owners, technicians, and manufacturers common with parameters to provide greater public safety. Low Energy doors are ideal for wheelchairs, canes, and walkers, but only if they are calibrated correctly. If your current setup uses an automatic opener, it must take at least five seconds to go from a closed position to 90-degree open position, have appropriate signage notification informing the user the door is automatic, among other standards to ensure the greatest protection from injury or death.
Having your handicap ADA doors inspected regularly is the key to preventing unwanted injuries and accidents. Adjustments should only be performed by an AAADM certified technician, and OL Door Systems is here to help. We’ll take the time to set you up for success, saving you money and frustration down the line.
