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.
