In the swing

It’s not often that Astragal is moved to celebrate anything as mundane as an underfloor swing-door operator. But one installed by manufacturer Tormax should help bring an end to a major source of embarrassment to the profession – or at least to the RIBA. Installed under a swing door next to the revolving entrance of the institution’s listed headquarters in London's Portland Place, the operator should help with DDA compliance without damaging the protected appearance of the building. Who knows, some time soon it may no longer be necessary for people with severe disabilities to need to be brought into the beacon of the profession through an embarrassing side entrance.
