The DORMA privacy door system provides unhindered automated access for people with disabilities. The PDS can be fitted to either swing or sliding operators.
A user simply activates the door from the "push to open" button or alternatively "activates the door with a Master Locksmiths Accessible Key" and once in the rest room they simply press the “push to lock button”. Once the lock function is activated an LED lights externally and internally with a high luminance and glows red indicating the room is occupied or green highlighting the facility is vacant. To exit a user simply needs to press the button “push to open” and egress the room.Barrier-Free convenience
