Does your building meet new 2021 IBC Standards?
When looking at a new building, renovation, or ensuring an existing building is up to code, it’s important to be aware of changes to the International Building Code (IBC). Effective this year, the IBC has a mandated inclusion of automatic doors for entrances to most public buildings. This long sought-after change allows your building to be more accessible to the public and would be applicable for most public places, such as shops, banks, restaurants, theatres, community buildings, etc.
While the IBC change is focused on allowing for greater accessibility to public spaces, specifically for those with mobility issues or other physical challenges, automatic entrances to your building provide many benefits. Some of these benefits include but are not limited to:
Cost effective solutions/energy savings
Easy to use and maintain
Safe touch-free entrances
