Purpose: The manoeuvring space at doors must be secured for users of walking aids, wheelchair users, stroller users, luggage carriers, etc., so clear criteria must be established. The korean standards for the manoeuvring space at doors need to be improved to present clear criteria depending on the type of entrance and the direction of opening and closing. Method: Korean standard, International Standard(ISO 21542, 2011), German Standard(DIN 18040-1, 2010), Austrian Standard(OENORM B 1600, 2017) and Swiss Standard(Norm SIA 500, 2009) were investigated and analyzed. A comprehensive improvement of the criteria for the manoeuvring space at doors is proposed. Results: The manoeuvring space at doors, which is essential for the disabled to use the door, shall be installed with a comprehensive consideration of the width of doors, the Circulation space, the direction of access, and the method of opening and closing of the door. Korean standards, such as the width of doors, the Circulation space, and the manoeuvring space at doors, are different from international and international standards, which require improvement of standards. The criteria for the manoeuvring space at doors shall be clearly improved so as not to be misinterpreted during the installation of doors and the BF-certification. Implication: The criteria for the installation of doors shall be presented as a comprehensive alternative through continued study of details. In addition, improvements in standards that reflect changes in international standards should be made.
