Designers and Manufacturers of Equipment for People With Disabilities

We have been helping clients throughout the UK to achieve independent lifestyles, with the aid of technology, for over 40 years. Our Door Openers, Window Openers and other Communication and Security Equipment can be tailored to meet a client’s specific needs/abilities. We believe everyone should have independence in their own home or anywhere they may wish to visit.

Radio Frequency Transmitters

Radio Frequency Transmitters can be used to operate our Door and Window Openers as well as other equipment or devices you already have in your home. Our Transmitters come in a range of sizes; Miniature, Standard or Smack Down Lever meaning they can offer a method of operation to suit most client’s dexterity. They can also be used to operate more than one piece of equipment giving more independence. All of our Transmitters can operate our equipment from approximately 60 metres and if required they can be worn on a Lanyard or attached to a Keyring or velcroed to a Wheelchair or Scooter if this could assist the client.

Security Equipment

See all Security Equipment

We offer a range of methods to assist clients with security including:

Automated Locking Systems

Our Automated Locking System is multi-dimensional, it can either be used to keep someone in or keep someone out. We can install this system onto a door, gate, window, or cupboard which will ensure they can only be opened by a person who is in possession of a tag, if this is not the case they would remain in the secured state.

Maglock Locking System

The MagLock Locking System is an electromagnetic locking system which can be fitted to windows, any type of door including cupboard/storage units and draw units to offer additional peace of mind whether that be down to the need for extra security or to stop a person from injuring themselves.

Video Door Latch Release

Our Video Door Latch Release System allows a client to be alerted to a visitor at their door via a fixed video monitor which are placed in a convenient location within their home.   The monitor is connected to a doorbell camera or visitors panel which can be used to both see and speak to the visitor.  If the client wishes to let the visitor in the door may then be released using a button on the monitor or via a Transmitter. Additional monitors can be added so the client can be informed of any visitors at all times.

I had an automatic door opener fitted on my front door and a window opener fitted in a couple of rooms and they are great. They were very helpful when I was ordering and the guy who came to fit it was very nice and could not have been more of a help. They managed to install it pretty quickly and its been brilliant being able to be more independent, my carers definitely appreciate it as well!
