Just about every facility has a door or gate that can either welcome us into a building or act as a hindrance. We will review door and gate requirements from clearances and specifications to operating hardware, including automatic opening devices. The requirements vary depending upon the type of entry and whether it is swinging, sliding, pocket, or just an opening. There are power-assist, low energy, and automatic doors and gates which have further requirements over and above manual doors. As always, the approach has impact on spatial parameters. We will additionally review permanent room signs which are associated with doors and also have impact on spatial requirements.


  • Understand different door types and hardware including specialty doors and their parameters
  • Review door clear floor space requirements dependent upon approach and door type
  • Learn about various sign components along with their technical requirements
  • Overview different sign types in general and their installation requirements
