Three Common Types of Automatic Commercial Doors

July 10, 2017 | Commercial Doors

Automatic commercial doors are essential for any business’s smooth operation. A high-quality set of automatic commercial doors can show off a particular impression, allowing customers and clients to feel more comfortable. Ultimately, the type of commercial door a business owner uses depends on their daily traffic volume.

Vortex Doors offers three types of automatic commercial doors: sliding, swinging and telescoping. What follows is a summary of each type of automatic door so that business owners can make an informed decision on the type that best suits their business.

Automatic Sliding Doors

Often found in grocery stores, hospitals or other retail establishments, automatic sliding doors provide a hands-free entrance into a business. The structure can consist of a single door sliding in one direction or a set of two doors that each slide in opposite directions away from each other. Automatic sliding doors deliver a huge benefit in energy savings, as the door only opens when a customer is entering or exiting. Automatic sliding doors are important for businesses that experience a high volume of foot traffic.

Automatic Telescoping Doors

These types of automatic entrances are useful in areas where space is at a premium, as they easily fit into smaller entryways. Automatic Telescoping Doors consist of a series of small panels that slide and stack upon each other to deliver a wide clearance space. These types of automatic doors are often found in banks, airports and municipal office buildings.

Automatic Swinging Doors

Specifically used to control the flow of traffic through an entrance or exit, automatic swinging doors often use guide railings to monitor the movement of pedestrian traffic. Double swinging doors are found in the interior areas of schools, apartment residences, and offices. They can be installed in exterior or interior areas and are an excellent choice for accommodating individuals with disabilities.

Automatic commercial doors are an essential part of any business design. The type of door that is needed is dependent on the amount of foot traffic, and location of the business.
