Disabled Living

Here’s a very useful YouTube Channel for wheelchair users - not simply from an accessible home design point of view but other basic things about how to get by if you find yourself confined to a wheelchair for any length of time.

Sometimes the simple ideas are the best - check out the extra handle on the garage door as we take a look around Brian’s home:

Lorient Door Drop Seals

These are the drop seals which I want to install in the bottom of the interior doors. They neatly install in a routed channel made in the bottom of the door and are held in place by two end plates.

They are adjusted by screwing the operating button in or out to allow for different gaps between the bottom of the door and the floor/threshold.

Used in conjunction with perimeter seals (from the same company) and decent quality doors this should provide and effective sound barrier between the bedrooms and the living room, and also between the corridor and the entrance lobby.

How drop seals work

They are also made in Britain!
