Disability Discrimination Act

(DDA)BS.8300

An Act to make it unlawful to discriminate against disabled persons in connection with employment, the provision of goods, facilities and services or the disposal or management of premises; to make provision about the employment of disabled persons.

The Building Regulations make provisions for visual contrast between:

  • Ironmongery and door faces
  • Some door faces and door edges - where doors are not self closing or are held open
  • Door faces & pilasters
  • Handrails & walls
  • Floors & walls

Contrast visually is given as a difference in light reflectance value (LRV) between two surfaces of greater than 30 points. Excelsior offer a range of ironmongery colour finishes to comply with these guidelines.

The Act also gives guidelines for the minimum requirements for both size and the recommended hardware for Disabled & Ambulant cubicles. This information along with the LRV of Polyrey, Formica and Trespa laminates will be available soon on this website.
