DAP-3 Double Action Pivot

Emergency Rescue Hardware Set - Application

The Emergency Rescue Hardware Set can be used on any internal door designed for double action operation, with a maximum weight of 65 kilos – dictated by the jamb mounted pivot set.

The Building Regulations Part M – Access To & Use of Buildings M1/M3 Buildings other than dwellings. Section 5 – Sanitary accommodation in buildings other than dwellings.

The above mentioned section of Approved Document M includes design considerations and provisions to address the issues mentioned in the introduction. Specifically: “5.4 e. WC compartment doors, and doors to wheelchair-accessible unisex toilets, changing rooms or shower rooms have an emergency release mechanism so that they are capable of being opened outwards, from the outside, in case of emergency.”
