DDA Compliant Door Furniture
Help note; Where a standard door latch is fitted the type of door furniture that best suit all the requirements is a round bar return to door door lever.
If you need door furniture in a private home that needs to be operated by an elderly or disabled relative or a child then most door levers are acceptable, however it is better to avoid fitting them with "Heavy Duty" latches and stick to fitting the handles to a softly sprung latch to aid operation.
For optimum visual contrast then the door levers need to be a different colour to a door, so a white door would require darker door levers and a dark wood door would require some reflective or light door levers such some chrome door handles.
It is part of Building Regulations to fit a suitable door threshold to allow better access by wheel chair users or the elderly.
