DDA Regulations

The Disability Discrimination Act is a piece of legislation that promotes civil rights for disabled people and protects disabled people from discrimination, there is an area within this that protects individuals from the dangers of glass & glazing.

These are for Glass Entrance Doors and Glazed Screens.

  • The location of glass entrance doors should be easily distinguished, especially when they are within a glazed screen and when the door is both open and shut
  • Manifestation should be clearly contrasting with the background in all weather/lighting conditions
  • Manifestation should be located between 850mm – 1000mm and 1400mm – 1600mm i.e. in 150mm high bands which could be a solid band, a decorative feature or split bands of 50mm each (see diagram below)
  • If glass doors can remain in the open position, the leading edge should be clearly distinguished and protected by guarding to prevent it becoming a collision hazard

Solartek Films Ltd can install manifestations of all shapes and colours to comply with these regulations.
