An automatic door is required to be safe guarded by the following signage:

1. An indicator sign in the form of an arrow of minimal size of 100mm long by 40mm high visible from both sides of the door leaf between 1.2m and 1.5m above the floor level as close as practical to the leading edge, with the head of the arrow pointing in the direction of the door leaf travel when opening. Colour of the arrow shall be “off white”. This directional arrow as nominated in AS 5007 is the responsibility of the auto door supplier.

2. The design for access and mobility under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). The building codes of Australia and the Australian Standard for Glass in Buildings AS 1288 requires frameless or fully glazed doors, sidelights and any glazing capable of being mistaken for a doorway or opening where there is no chair rail, handrail or transom, should be clearly marked for the full width with a contrasting line not than 75mm wide at a height between 900mm and 1000mm above the floor. The contrasting line should have a minimum luminance contrast with the back ground when viewed from either side, the fitting of the vision strip is the responsibility of the contractor providing the glazing.
