The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act)
Posted by Andrew Clutterbuck in News on August 22, 2006
The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) requires those bodies responsible for buildings to make proper provision for disabled access into their buildings. To meet this requirement many door companies produce a retrofit powered opening system, the most reliable of these are pneumatically powered.
Many of these are in super noise sensitive environments, libraries, museums, office buildings, care homes and hotels. Bambi’s recently updated range of silent running air compressors is the perfect solution to the problem of supplying compressed air in this difficult environment.
With noise levels as low as 40 dB(A) – less than a domestic refrigerator, Bambi compressors are fully automatic in operational and when fitted with an optional automatic receiver condensate drain become virtually maintenance free.
Air receivers are internally powder coated to prevent against corrosion carry a 3 – 5 year warranty depending on model and are available from 9 – 50 litre capacities. A standard fit 10 micron air filter & adjustable pressure regulator means connection to the door system is quick and convenient and because they are so quiet can be easily sited anywhere convenient.
With our knowledge and experience of this growing application Bambi supplies the leading door opening system suppliers both here and in Europe.
