Knobs no more

Fun fact of the day…

The City of Vancouver has banned the installation of round handle doorknobs for the city’s new developments. The policy comes in an attempt to make buildings more accessible to the elderly and particularly those with disabilities. Besides the mandatory installation of lever-type door handles, other new building code policy changes include barrier free/adaptable showers, lower light switches, higher placed power outlets and wider doors, stairs and hallways.
