Automatic Doors – Introduction
Automatic doors are becoming an extremely popular feature as an addition to any shop front.
The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) is now actively in force and access for everyone, regardless of their limitations or disability, needs to be provided for in any premises whether it be retail, industrial or office. This type of entrance is especially suitable for areas where the footfall is at its highest.
Automatic doors operate once the fitted photocell beam has been broken by someone or something approaching the doorway. They close automatically once the signal has been restored and there is also a security feature that means the doors remain open should someone be stood in the entrance.
These doors are usually constructed using aluminium box section profile housing the laminated safety glazing. However, they can also be manufactured using a ‘frameless’ toughened glass method.
Their elegant design and efficient operation provide many business’s with an extremely practical but modern solution for everyday access.
