These door entry panels and systems are designed to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). This Act requires service providers and landlords to consider making reasonable adjustments to the physical features of their premises to overcome physical barriers to access.
The Bell DDA panels have been designed to address the varying interpretations and compliance with the legislation with regards to door entry systems.
All panels are manufactured in 2.5mm 316 marine grade stainless steel and can be flush or surface mounted.
For the blind or partially sighted
Pushbuttons with a high-visibility 'halo' ring are used.
For wheelchair users
These panels have an extended length that allows operation from both able-bodied and wheelchair users at different heights.
For the deaf or 'hard of hearing'
Each panel includes two bright indicator lights; one permanently engraved with 'Speak Now' when a call has been answered, and the other engraved 'Door Open' for when the resident has triggered the lock release.
Resident or Employee facilities
Added options include; a panel-mount proximity reader for resident or employee access, a CCD camera for connection to a video telephone and Tradesmen facilities.
