Title: Whole life performance of domestic automatic door controls

Ref Code: IP2/02
Authors: S L Garvin

Abstract1: Automatic door controls improve access for disabled and elderly people and generally work well. Their high initial cost is the main input to the whole life costs. Maintenance costs are necessary to maintain performance. Each installation needs to be considered on its merits. Controls may be installed so they are part of the permanent fixtures and the cost and performance can be viewed over the whole life of the building, or at least in its current use. More commonly, controls are fitted in existing housing to meet the needs of an individual for a limited time.
