Swing Doors take up minimal space while maximising opening width.
Manual Aluminium Swing Doors look professional and are a reliable, long term solution to your door problems.
Having an Automatic Swing Door is a relatively simple, yet highly sustainable way to enhance the performance, accessibility and capacity of an entrance or exit point.
Manual doors are often left open allowing warm air in during the summer and cold air in during the winter, wasting energy. Automating these doors can ensure your doors stay open when in use and remain closed when not in use. They can either be installed as new or existing doors can be modified to become automatic.

We have a great deal of knowledge and experience with swing doors, they are the most popular as they are very easy to install. Swing doors can be installed in a wide range of environments, including schools, hotels, offices, hospitals and any type of private or public accessible building. They are suitable for internal and external entrances.
Most manual doors can be modified to become automatic.
The handles shown are a very basic paddle handle, but aluminium Swing Doors can accept a wide range of door handles to suit your preferences.
The glazing is changed from single glazing to double glazing by simply changing the securing glazing beads that are used, along with a different glazing gasket.
The setup that we use for manual Swing Doors is very similar to the setup for a power assisted or automatic Swing Door. There are very important and critical differences however and this is an area where many door companies fall down on.
Our construction method is to use the manufacturers specified system which involves 4 tapered stainless steel lock pins at every joint. A specialist expanding bonding agent applied to every joint and then if necessary an M6 Tie rod, internally fitted inside the door to add one last additional aspect of strength to the construction.
We use a common anti finger trap guard section at the rear edge of our doors. This gives excellent protection against trapped hands and fingers at the rear edge of the door leaf.
Most Swing Doors can be automated with automatic swing operators.
There are so many devices that do this on the market now, so how do you know which one is right?
When you start to look closely at the differences between various models you will notice that it is getting harder and harder to tell the differences apart.
So, what do you need to consider when thinking about this type of automatic door system?
A lot of the models you see on the market now are programmable, so they can cope with a wide range of settings and requirements for each automatic door situation, but after that, the next issue is: can each model cope with the size and weight of the door that it's connected to?
Then we need to consider how does the automatic swing doors operator cope with general day to day use. We see a lot of entrance doors that receive a great deal of aggression directed at the doors and this can be as simple as the end users kicking and pushing the door open very hard so it slams against a wall or door stop.
So when you look deeply at these types of issues you will find that things start to get a little muddy in terms of which model is best suited to cope with these types of environments.
Each type of site has its own issues, its own complications and problems to deal with so experience counts a great deal and if your door supplier has some knowledge and better yet, actual experience with a site that's as close to yours as possible, then that will usually help them to provide a better suited product.
There are other units that will deal with anything you throw at them, but they look like a sherman tank bolted on to your door frame and make the door very heavy and difficult to manually operate.
So finding a well specified door operator is tricky. We have tried 7 different types over the last 10 years and we now find that there is a very good all round model that is programmable, hard wearing and can actually cope with heavy handed use and even a little aggression directed at the doors.
