This section includes doors and door equipment that may assist with entering and exiting a room or building.

Sliding doors may be useful where space is limited, and may also enable greater room for manoeuvre when using hoists or shower chairs in small bathroom areas. They may slide telescopically or in a concertina fashion, and are operated manually, by remote control, or push-button.

Folding doors may be useful where space is limited and may also be useful if a room needs to be partitioned for greater privacy. They provide greater room for manoeuvre when using hoists and shower chairs in small bathroom areas. 

Automatic doors are operated by electro-mechanical or electro-hydraulic activators and may include sliding or swing doors for indoor or entrance use, choice of operating methods including foot or hand operated switches, pressure mats and movement sensors. It is strongly advised that automatic doors are fitted with a presence detector to ensure that the doors remain open until the threshold area is clear.

Door openers and closers are fixed to existing manual doors and enable them to be opened/closed automatically or by powered assist. The automatic door openers can be operated by a range of controls. Some door closers operate on adjustable time delay. There is an emergency override on some systems to close a door automatically in an emergency.

Door holders and sensors are intended to hold a door open and allow controlled closure with an adjustable time delay to enable a wheelchair user or ambulant person with a disability to pass through. Also included are sensors which prevent closure if the doorway is obstructed.
