Automatic sliding doors on pedestrian entrances deliver a range of benefits to the building. When choosing an automatic door, you will need to make sure it meets all your needs.
Keep traffic moving
Automatic sliding doors are perfect for busy areas with cross-traffic as they don’t open into the building space. Settings such as airports where people are going in many different directions or shops where space is limited are a perfect match for automatic sliding doors. The integrated TightSeal technology keeps draughts out while strong wind load capacity ensures comfort is maintained even in very bad weather.
Ensure optimum safety
Automatic sliding doors ensure safety by limiting the risk of injury or damage. As the doors slide open there is little opportunity for users to get caught or trapped in the door. Additionally, automatic sliding doors are integrated with safety sensors, emitter technology and lateral sensors that ensure timely operation, increasing the safety factor.
Anyone can use an automatic sliding door to enter a building. Smart sensors allow those with disabilities to pass through seamlessly. With sensors ensuring there are no barriers to people who need to urgently pass through, automatic sliding doors make for the optimum entrance for escape routes. In facilities such as hospitals, high standards of hygiene can be maintained with automatic sliding doors enabling contactless entry, thereby, minimising the risk of germs spreading.
Suit your space
Automatic sliding doors can be tailored to suit the needs of your entrances. If space is limited, sliding doors can be built to disappear into the wall. Different thermal requirements can be met with insulated glass, TightSeal technology and sensors.
Regardless of the environment – be it a hospital, retail store, hotel, office or public building – automatic sliding doors are always worth considering as they can bring great benefits such as convenience, safety and comfort.
