Since 2010, barrier-free construction has been defined in DIN standard 18040 for public and private buildings. DIN 18040 Section 2 determines and defines the basis for barrier-free planning, construction and equipping of residential buildings and their outdoor facilities. The goal of the standard is to define the requirements that must be met in order to achieve barrier-free accessibility. DIN SPEC 1104 also takes into account the lowest possible force requirement for easy access to doors. In addition, the VDI 6008 guidelines present various methods for avoiding or reducing barriers.
In addition to meeting the standards for a wheelchair-accessible or barrier-free home (DIN 18040), you should not compromise the functionality, durability and appearance of your windows, doors, roller shutters, roller garage doors or sun protection. You can also take advantages of individual subsidy opportunities.
