Adapt Your Business With A Drive Thru or Pass Thru Window System

August 6, 2020 | Commercial Doors

In these unprecedented times, businesses are working to adapt to meet CDC and local guidelines for operation during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Every business, from restaurants and retail stores to public office buildings and schools, are having to modify their processes in order to comply with local regulations and CDC guidelines. 

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), social distancing, also referred to as “physical distancing,” means maintaining a space between yourself and people outside of your business. The recommendation is to follow these guidelines:

  • Stay at least 6 feet or 2 meters from other people
  • Do not gather in groups
  • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings

One simple way to modify a building to make it safer for operation during the COVID-19 pandemic is by installing a pass thru or “drive thru” sliding window system. These innovative additions allow for easy transacting from a safe distance and can blend seamlessly with any building’s exterior. A variety of businesses and facilities could benefit from the safety and convenience a drive thru window provides, including: 

  • Retail stores
  • Restaurants 
  • Government buildings 
  • Schools 

Vortex recently helped a school adapt to the ever-changing times by transforming the front of this high school by installing a pass thru window. This new window will help the faculty and staff interact safely with students throughout the year.

If you think your business or building could benefit from the convenience of a pass thru window, contact us. Our knowledgeable team can help you navigate through these unprecedented times. Request your free estimate here or contact us at 800-698-6783.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Dan Sharon W.

Jose D.
I had several issues with my doors at my business and Vortex came today and solved all my problems. Ray and Chris were awesome they took their time to fix all the issues and made sure the jobs done were to my standards. I have dealt with other door companies over the past 4 years and not one of them were able to solve all my problems and one of them made them worse. I am really pleased with Vortex and the Techs Ray and Chris. They even cleaned their mess!??

Our business has a loading dock with a roll up bay door. The bay door was bent off the tracks, and we found it couldn't be closed or moved up or down. Our initial call had a response time of about 30 minutes. They showed up, diagnosed the issue, and provided a fix time of 4-6 weeks.Of course we weren't delighted, but we wanted to move forward. They understood that having a bay door that didn't close was a major issue for us and they immediately began to troubleshoot, finding a solution for us. Early that next morning we had Daniel show up and said he can get us operational (door being able to open, close, and secured) within 3 hours. They finished in 2. Daniel, Phillip, and Conner made the the security of our building at Pacific Office Automation a priority for us again, and it was all done in less than 24 hours. I have nothing but good things to say about this experience.Response time was A+, problem solving was A+, and we will be using them in the future for any and all of our needs. I guess we can close the door on this one.
