Accessing your home can be challenging if you're a wheelchair user or have limited mobility. While doors offer security and privacy, they can become a real problem for people in these circumstances, often requiring assistance from a care provider or family member to open and close them. Even just going outside into the back yard can take a lot of planning and energy, leading people to abandon what should be a simple break or breath of fresh air.
We understand how frustrating these situations can be, and we've helped hundreds of Calgary businesses create easily accessible entrance ways with automatic doors - but what about automatic doors for residential use in the home? Why does it seem so difficult to find residential automatic doors or handicap doors for home use?
We're starting to see more Calgarians take action to take back their autonomy and freedom, and we've worked with homeowners in Calgary to help them do just that! Calgary Lock & Safe is working with members of the community, who use wheelchairs, to assist them in their goals. From a site home visit through to installation, we're here to help.
Here are some steps Calgary Lock & Safe can guide you through to assist in fitting your home with an automatic or handicap door:
