I am currently adapting a house for my son, who ha DMD, and will need an electric wheelchair. The doors fitted by the builder are 810mm wide, which he says meets regulations for disability access, but i have been told that 850 – 90mm doors are recommended. Do we need to change the doors already fitted?
It says 850mm minimum unobstructed. I have just measured my doors and they are over 900mm – it was built 5 years ago. I am sure there will be other members who can give your more definite details. I keep seeing part M of the building regs being mentioned.
