The OBC requires barrier-free washrooms in the province of Ontario
to be provided in public areas of most buildings. These washrooms must be
situated on a barrier-free path of travel and are subject to a number of
requirements addressing turning space, doorway widths, grab bars, counter
heights and signage, among others.
CM-35N was developed to meet the needs of the Ontario automatic door market and
features the small mounting footprint of our CM-25 and the OBC compliant
faceplate of our CM-35 single gang series. These CM-35N push plate switches
have a 4-1/2" tall x 2" wide back mounting plate and are available
with a wide range of graphic options and a selection of special order
in mind, that while CM-35N push plate switches are small enough to fit on door
jambs, the regulation 368/13 amendment to the OBC, which became effective
January 1, 2015, prohibits that placement in automatic door applications.
Switches must be placed a minimum of 600mm (23
-1/2") beyond the door swing.
