Accessibility statement

This website is run by Open Systems Lab. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, this means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Zoom in up to 300% without text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using keyboard inputs
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader, including key images.

We have also tried to make the writing on this website as clear as possible.

How accessible is this website?

We know some parts of this website are not accessible.

  • Many images do not have alt text yet
  • You will not be able to modify line height or spacing of some text
  • The dropdown menus in the Navigation bar cannot be navigated using the keyboard. This seems to be a bug.
  • Some content on the Product page cannot be navigated using the keyboard

Compliance status

This site is currently still in development. We aim to make it fully compliant with  the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, however it is not yet.

Content not in scope

By definition, some of the content shared on this website, such as architectural drawings, PDF documents cutting files are not fully accessible. This may especially apply to content shared by others. However, we have attempted to minimise this information.

Feedback and contact

We would hugely appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how to make this website more accessible, or reports of parts which you currently cannot use. Please use our feedback form, or email:

What we're working on next

This website is still in development. The next issues we want to fix are:

  • Add alt text to all relevant images
  • Fix the nav bar
