image4 The client is a child with severe autism who ‘escapes’ from his bedroom at night, disturbing the household.  The family have tried stairgates and a high ‘dog gate’ over the bedroom doorway, but he has worked out ways to scale them by building up a pile of blankets etc.  A more secure way to close the doorway was required that still allows him to see out and not feel too enclosed.

A standard door was modified with bars over an opening in the lower section and a sliding Perspex screen to provide some sound reduction. The screen and handle are on the outside, and the slides sufficiently stiff that the screen cannot be opened from inside.
