AUTOMATIC THRESHOLD / AUTOMATIC THRESHOLD

AUTOMATIC THRESHOLD
AUTOMATIC THRESHOLD

This threshold design will provide people with disabilities (primarily wheelchair users) trouble free access through doorways. The design comes in a variety of models – different heights, profiles, speeds and linking systems which will accommodate virtually any situation where a threshold/doorsill is required, including (notably), single occupancy bathrooms and shower stalls where a waterproof threshold/doorsill is required.
An integrated directional lighting system indicates doorway location and acts as a night light or supplementary lighting for vision-impaired individuals.
