Which locks are compliant with the Standard for people with reduced mobility?

Concerned about compliance with the accessibility Standard, you have the challenge of undertaking work to bring your public-access buildings into compliance so that people with reduced mobility can access your buildings easily. Making buildings compliant is, in fact, a legal obligation for all public-access or residential buildings. We can help you with these initiatives, thanks to locks which fully comply with the legislation.

Locks for all buildings

As a building owner, you need to be thinking about the accessibility of the entry points when constructing the building, although we also offer solutions for renovations. Two models are available: the Centr'axe mortise lock and the 9948 PMR rim lock. Whether certified A2P* or not, this equipment enables you to fit out public-access buildings and residential buildings. On these two locks, backset is located 300mm from the edge of the door. You therefore satisfy the criteria required by the law whilst retaining a standard-length handle.

Centr'axe mortise range

  • 1-point or 3-point.
  • 300 or 465mm backset.
  • Standard version or A2P* certified (only on 3-point models).   

Rim 9948 PMR range

  • 3-point.
  • 300mm backset.
  • Standard version or A2P* certified.

Note on the law on accessibility

The operations to work a door must be accessible in a standing position, in a seated position and also for people who have difficulty in gripping or in making a rotational movement of the wrist.

2 technical aspects requiring compliance:

  1. Having an extremity located more than 400mm from an internal angle, from walls or from any other obstacle to an approaching wheelchair.
  2. Having the axes of the handle AND of the cylinder located more than 300mm from an internal angle, from walls or from any other obstacle to an approaching wheelchair, only for residential buildings.
