Automatic doors provide for the convenient movement of people along with energy saving properties. Depending on the building that the doors are to be fitted in, there are a number of automatic door solutions available.
Automatic Sliding Doors
Automatic sliding doors are available in a number of guises. Single slide doors are a single panel door that slides to one side. Bi-part sliding doors are two door panels that slide apart in opposite directions and provide a much wider opening than the single slide door. Telescopic sliding doors can be used in situations where a wider opening is required but the space to the side of the opening is limited.
Sliding doors are an efficient way to accommodate two way traffic or used where directional traffic control is required, with one side for entry and the other for exit. Automatic sliding doors will normally include safety devices to prevent them closing when an obstruction is present in the opening and can have options for being held open and manual override operation.
Automatic Swing Doors
Automatic swing doors open in a conventional manner but are fitted with sensors to detect the presence of a person, and when person is present, they open. Safety sensors are normally fitted to ensure that the door will not operate is an object is detected in the area of the swing. Automatic swing doors are a good solution for directional traffic. Typically one door is for entry and another for exit.
To prevent the doors swinging into a person or object, safety barriers are required to be fitted at the extent of the door swing.
Automatic Folding Doors
Automatic folding doors are normally used where there is a limit of opening space and a low throughput of traffic. Single fold doors are suitable for directional traffic, whereas bi-folding doors are suitable for two-way traffic. Whichever type of automatic door you require, there are a number of other aspects that you should take into account.
Wind load where the prevailing wind conditions dictate, the doors should be approved to withstand certain wind conditions without becoming damaged or inoperative.
Quality & Safety
