Safety Precaution on Automatic Swing Door

Postby terry » Fri Jun 29, 2012 2:33 am

Another safety issue to look out for cos it happened to my boy.

Those auto glass doors tat swing open.

My boy was walking towards the doors but he is too short to activate the sensor tt is normally placed at the top of the doors. He was standing near the door waiting and probably wondering y the door nv open and i was coming up 2 steps behind him when the drs swing open towards us. His crocs were caught at the bottom of the dr gap as it swing open. Thank god, the straps were not ard his heels, and by reflex, he quickly jerk his foot away else he wun be able to slip his foot off in time.

It happened right before my eyes, as if in slow motion and my heart nearly stop beating.

I hope i describe it well enough for u all to visualize it.

Pls all parents be aware of this hazard in future.
