1, There should be sufficient space for wheelchair users to maneuver at both the "push" and "pull" sides of the doors.
2, Handles, pulls and other opening devices must be suitable for persons with reduced strength and dexterity to control.
3, Lever handles and push type mechanisms are recommended.
4, Glass doors must have a bright, coloured motif at eye level.
Please note the difference between the "Push side" and the "Pull side" of doorway.
The drawing above shows the importance of having clear space in front of a door. The clear space (marked as a yellow box in the left drawing) must be placed at the correct possition. The drawing on the right shows the wheelchair user having problem in reaching the door level because of the lack of a clear space.
