Ensure Part M compliance as standard with FX15

It’s easy for installers to offer low thresholds as standard with FX15 from MI Products.

The leading hardware specialist has designed and developed the FX15 low door threshold to successfully comply with Part M of Building Regulations and meet the demands for easy access in and out of properties.

Ian Searle, Director of MI Products, says:
“People like the ease of entry with low thresholds, which is why it’s so popular.
“When homeowners are looking to change their doors or move into a new build, one of the key things they look out for is seamless access inside and outside.
“For some homeowners, such as wheelchair users and those with limited mobility, it’s even more crucial their doors provide easy access. That’s why Building Regulations Approved Document Part M for accessibility requires all doors in new builds to contain a low threshold of 15mm.”

FX15 from MI Products has a genuine 15mm upstand, with no extensions or ramps, for easy access through entrance doors, including composite doors, and double doors, such as patio doors.

Ian continues: 
“Not only are compact, low thresholds vital for wheelchair access and those with limited mobility, it means pushchairs and children can easily enter and exit the home.
“Almost every new build property is filled with a composite entrance door and a set of double doors for opening up homes to the garden. Using FX15 as standard for these products makes it easier for installers to win new build project work.
“Fitting the FX15 as standard to your door range means installers have peace of mind that they’re achieving Part M compliance, as well as reassurance that if the end user has limited mobility or small children, you won’t have to worry about adapting your existing doors for retrofit projects.”

To allow for volume fitting as standard, the FX15 is supplied fully prepped and pre-packed and can be fixed using just two screws.

As well as achieving genuine Part M compliance, FX15 threshold has successfully passed testing for PAS 24 and Secured by Design accreditation, an integral part of the Lifetime Homes standard and BS6375 part 1 and 2 tests.
