A 760mm clear walk-through meets disabled access standards and can be achieved with a 910mm wide CS EasyOpen cavity slider. The door protrudes 100mm into the opening, allowing for an easy-to-operate Lever or D-Pull handle to be fitted.
However, the average width of wheelchairs is increasing and it may be more appropriate to allow for a 810mm clear walk-through, which also meets the Lifemark standards. For this option, a door width of 940mm or greater is required.
For greater ease of use, the CS AutoCav ‘Basic’ is a good option. Designed to provide the minimum level of automation for the home or business, this automated cavity slider will complete an open cycle after a manual start with a D-Pull handle. The door holds open for three seconds (adjustable) then slowly closes again.
If space is an issue and narrower door widths are necessary, the need for protruding door hardware can be eliminated by using the CS AutoCav ‘Custom’. This cavity slider is an automated solution that is fully customisable and may include operating devices such as capacitive switches, floor pads or overhead sensors. Battery backup is provided, and locking functionality is also available if required.
For the ultimate accessible doorway solution for public WC facilities, choose a fully automated cavity sliding door solution complete with indicating lights and heavy-duty push-buttons mounted on laser-etched stainless steel indicator plates.
A patented cavity frame combined with safety features and a manufacturer’s guarantee means CS sliding door solutions will be reliable performers now and long into the future.
