DDA Accessibility

AHC specialises in providing DDA Solutions to existing or new door openings.

A person with a disability has a right to have access to places used by the public.The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1992 makes it against the law for public places to be inaccessible to people with a disability. People who discriminate against people with disabilities are faced with the possibility of a complaint being made against them

Public Places Covered

These places include Public footpaths and walkways, Educational institutions, Shops and department stores, Banks, credit unions, building societies, Parks, public swimming pools, public toilets, and pedestrian malls, Cafes, restaurants, pubs, Theatres and other places of entertainment, Lawyers’ offices and legal services, Libraries, Sporting venues, Social and sporting clubs, Government offices, Public transport including trains, buses, ferries, boats, ships and planes, Dentists’ and doctors’ surgeries, Hospitals, Hairdressers and beauty salons, Travel agents, and Government-run services.

This applies to existing places as well as places under construction.

Every area and facility open to the public should be open and available to people with a disability

They should expect to enter and make use of places used by the public if people without a disability can do so. People who design, build, own, manage, lease, operate, regulate and use premises already have responsibilities and rights under the DDA.
