On Monday, the restrooms on my hallway at work were closed, so that automatic door openers could be installed to make them more accessible. The problem now is that the electronics controlling the doors either haven’t yet been activated or weren’t correctly installed, while the hydraulic system now in place to automatically open and close the two doors you pass through to get into the bathroom has the effect of making the doors significantly harder to open manually. So for now the handicapped aren’t able to open the doors using the automatic system, and those of us without physical handicaps struggle even to open them by hand.
