Join the 21st Century Today! Retrofit Every Door In Your Building With An Automatic Door Opener.
One generation ago, it must have sounded like science fiction to many; a technologically integrated commercial boulevard where customers can enter and exit each shop without lifting a finger. But incredible innovations in automatic door opener technology have made automated entryways a reality for countless building owners. Every year the technology behind automatic doors improves, and every year the cost of installing them decreases.
When It Comes To Automatic Doors, The Customer Is Always Right
The retail business sector has conducted countless studies and surveys focusing on customer response to automatic doors. And most of the data points to a simple, obvious trend; foot-traffic customers prefer the ease of automated entryways. Every customer demographic can benefit from them – those shopping with small children can rest assured of their safety when entering and exiting buildings (no more slammed fingers!). Elderly patrons or physically infirm patrons can come and go as they please without assistance from other customers or employees. And, perhaps most importantly, all of the automatic door opener brands we carry here at Cypress Door & Glass LLC are Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) approved. Installing ADA-approved automatic doors means your building will be up to snuff legally, and will attract a growing consumer group highly loyal to handicap-accessible businesses.
The Automatic Door Operator; The Most Important Part of the Automated Door Package
Automatic door opener technology revolves around the “operator”. Many customers interact with automatic door operators on a daily basis, they just may not realize their purpose. People are probably most familiar with automatic swinging door operators. These operators appear as low-profile rectangular metal boxes mounted above the automatic swinging door. It houses an electric motor which puts torque on a swing arm, which safely opens and closes one door. For entryways with multiple swinging doors, one operator per door is the norm.
For sliding doors, the operator is usually more hidden, built into the physical structure of the door itself. All of these various operator technologies have safety built-in. When closing a door, an operator’s electric motor instantly shuts down if any resistance is detected, indicating that something is caught between the door and door-frame. With body sensor technology, a sliding door will slide open and stay open for as long as its operator’s sensor detects bodies or movement in its vicinity.
