WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INSTALLING AUTOMATIC DOORS?
EFFORTLESS ENTRY & ENHANCED ACCESSIBILITY
Being the door experts that we are, our stance on automatic doors and especially for commercial buildings is nothing but positive (we aren’t biased, they really are just great!). The many benefits that come along with having automatic doors make them the perfect addition to your entrances, and in this blog post, we will be going over and covering several of these benefits to help you decide whether they’re fit for purpose for your requirements.
Having automatic doors installed in your business or home can provide a great deal of convenience. Automatic doors are a popular choice for businesses because they allow customers to enter and exit easily without the need to manually open and close the door. They also provide a touchless option, which has become increasingly important in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Automatic doors can come in various forms such as sliding, swing, or revolving, and can be operated by sensors or motion detectors. Handicap accessible automatic doors provide increased accessibility for individuals with disabilities, allowing them to enter and exit buildings with ease. Additionally, automatic doors can be equipped with security features such as access control, biometric access, or magnetic locks, providing increased safety and peace of mind.

Automatic doors can improve security in multiple ways. Access control systems that use biometric or magnetic locks can restrict entry to authorised personnel only. Motion detector and sensor doors can detect and prevent unauthorised access or tailgating, additionally, automatic doors can be programmed to only open during certain hours or when certain conditions are met, which can help to prevent unauthorised access outside of business hours.
By implementing automatic doors with these security features, businesses and organisations can better protect their assets and employees, while also improving the overall safety and security of their premises.
Hygiene control can be improved by minimising the need for people to touch door handles or push doors, which can help to reduce the transmission of germs and bacteria with the use of motion sensors to detect movement and automatically open and close the door. This can be particularly important in high traffic areas such as hospitals, clinics, and restaurants where hygiene is critical.
Additionally, automatic doors can be designed with features such as antimicrobial film or hands-free door activation, which can further enhance hygiene control. Antimicrobial film can be fitted by our professionals on any surface and is a cost effective additional solution to hygiene control.
Automatic doors can help to save space in a number of ways. Sliding doors, for example, can be installed in areas where traditional swinging doors may not be feasible due to limited space. Telescopic doors can also be used in areas where space is at a premium, as they require less clearance than traditional sliding doors. Revolving doors are another option that can save space by allowing multiple people to enter and exit simultaneously, without the need for additional floor space. By utilising automatic doors that are specifically designed to maximise space, businesses and organisations can make the most of their available floor space, while still providing convenient and efficient access to their facilities.
This can be particularly important in areas where space is limited, such as in urban environments or in buildings where floor space is at a premium.
Power-operated doors can be designed to open and close quickly, which can help to reduce the amount of heated or cooled air that escapes from a building. This can be particularly important in areas with extreme temperatures as it can help to reduce energy costs associated with heating and cooling.
Additionally, automatic doors can be equipped with sensors that detect the presence of people, which can help to prevent doors from opening unnecessarily, further reducing the amount of heated or cooled air that is lost. This not only saves energy, but also improves the overall efficiency of a building’s heating and cooling systems. By incorporating automatic doors with these energy-saving features, businesses and organisations can help to reduce their carbon footprint, while also enjoying the cost savings associated with reduced energy consumption.
EASY TO USE AND MAINTAIN
Maintenance of automatic doors is also relatively simple, as they typically require little more than regular cleaning and periodic inspections to ensure proper operation. In fact, many automatic door systems are equipped with self-diagnostic features that can detect and alert maintenance personnel to any issues before they become more serious. By utilising automatic doors that are easy to use and maintain, businesses and organisations can minimise downtime and associated costs, while also ensuring that their facilities are always accessible and functioning properly.
Automatic doors can help to improve the image of a building by conveying a sense of modernity, efficiency, and accessibility. The sleek and streamlined design of automatic doors, such as sliding or swing doors, can give a building a contemporary and sophisticated appearance, which can help to attract customers and visitors.
Additionally, features such as touchless operation or biometric access can help to enhance the image of a building as being modern and up-to-date with the latest technology trends. Automatic doors can also convey a sense of efficiency and accessibility, as they allow for quick and easy access to a building without the need for physical effort or interaction with door handles. This can be particularly important in areas with high foot traffic, where convenience and accessibility are key factors in creating a positive image for the building.
By incorporating automatic doors with these design features, businesses and organisations can enhance their image and create a positive first impression for visitors and customers alike.
