Digiway Door Automation
Providing Disabled Access
The DIGIWAY disabled access automatic door operator from the CDVI Group is a self contained unit for motorised opening and closing of single and double leaf doors.
The unit is mains electricity powered but contains a battery backup for 600 operations in the event of a power cut.
The DIGIWAY disabled access system features self learning operation and has a built in radio receiver for additional radio control use.
The system can be triggered by a simple push button or from any access control system. Additionally, an electric lock can be added and controlled by the DIGIWAY disabled access unit.
Disabled Access Switches
Designed to comply with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act
We supply a series of disabled access switches which employ the “All Active” technology, meaning wherever the switch is pressed it will activate.
This creates a larger target area, and is designed for people who have limited dexterity.
The units require a housing for surface fix which is designed to deflect attack in harsh areas.
Disabled Access Radio Control
For those single door applications requiring disabled access where wiring can be difficult, we have developed the RF magnet.
Supply 12Vdc to the disabled access magnet, and that is all - everything else is wireless.
Additionally, the magnet can be operated in the normal method of operation in tandem with the radio option.
