There are often difficulties in finding access friendly businesses for disabled people, however we look more into the issue below, including products that could be considered, and best practices to help people and businesses upgrade their disabled friendly locations.
You can find quite a lot of disabled friendly access control products at Locks Online, including buttons, lock key pads, and much more. A hands free access can often be a better way to manage external doors, such as automatic pads on the floor, or movement sensors above the doorway, which can both be activated by a disabled person, either on foot or in a wheelchair. This video shows some of the popular hands free access control options there are.
There is often talk about discrimination with disability access, but how can you really tell when something has been accidental or whether it’s deliberate laziness or poor practice. Discrimination is a terrible offense, and is definitely a crime punishable by law, however we believe that it can be avoided all together with the proper education, emotional intelligence, and empathy, to understand how the other person feels and how it’s difficult for a disabled person to get around. There are strict acts around Disability discrimination, which must be adhered to, the Citizens Advice website is a fantastic resource for this, as well as other things around the law and personal well being.
