Meeting the requirements for Ease of Access
The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) and BS 8300 recommends the inclusion of Electromagnetic solutions to ensure standards for Ease of Access, Building Regulations, the Equality Act and Advanced Document M (ADM) are met.
Compared with traditional Mechanical Door Closers, Electromagnetic Door Closers have extremely low opening forces, and therefore are not materially affected by external factors such as hinges, seals, latches, air pressure and variable fitting standards & positions.
