CODE

ISSUES

The Building Code will often identify the public doorways that must be provided with a power door operator. However, the Building Code does not always specify the placement of the power door operator push button. These two short videos clearly show that a poorly positioned push button (in the door frame) makes it impossible for a person in a wheelchair to enter a space; while a positively positioned push button (outside of the door swing) makes for easy access for any user in a wheelchair.
