Home modifications for elderly or disabled can be as simple as adding a handrail in the bathroom or a ramp to your front door. They can also involve complex structural changes and modifications that require the input of occupational therapists, architects and builders.
Automatic doors in commercial buildings are commonly seen in shopping centres and businesses. People think of automatic doors in the home and the first thing that comes to mind is a garage door opener.
We can automate all doors in your home whether that be a garage door or the front door of your home to make entering a simple and fluid process.
Automating your door takes away the need for a traditional key for entry. This improves access for people in wheelchairs and walking devices and those that may have trouble using a traditional key to lock and unlock their front door.
We can supply a range of solutions to automatically open your door.
These include: handheld push buttons, keypads, smart phone applications via Bluetooth or WIFI, wireless card readers that open when you are within range of the doorway.
All of these options have been tested and are proven to be secure and safe. Allowing the elderly and those with a disability to feel safe and secure at home.
Automatic door openers can not only be added to front entry doors but also internal swing doors and internal sliding doors. All doors have the ability to be automated in your home to provide freedom of movement and independence.
