Automatic sliding doors – the benefits

June 1, 2018

When choosing an automatic door for your pedestrian entrances it is important that they meet all your needs. So, here we take a look at the benefits of choosing an automatic sliding door system.

Keep traffic moving

Automatic sliding doors are excellent for busy areas with cross-traffic as they don’t open into your space. This makes them a good choice in settings such as airports where people are going in many different directions or shops where space is limited. They also help to keep your environments comfortable – TightSeal technology keeps draughts out and strong wind loads ensure comfort is maintained even in very bad weather.

Ensure optimum safety

Automatic sliding doors are a safe choice – there is limited risk of injury or damage. As the doors slide open there is little opportunity for users to get caught or trapped in the door, and  technology such as safety sensors, timely opening with emitter technology and lateral sensors increase the safety of every automatic sliding door. 

Meet regulations

No matter their needs, anyone can use an automatic sliding door to enter a building. Smart sensors mean that those who require disabled access can pass through seamlessly. And they are also the optimum entrance for escape routes – sensors ensure there are no barriers to people who need to urgently pass through the entrance. And in facilities such as hospitals, high standards of hygiene can be maintained as contactless entry minimizes the risk of germs spreading.

Suit your space

Automatic sliding doors can be tailored to suit the needs of your entrances. If space is limited sliding doors can be built to disappear into the wall and different thermal requirements be met with features such as insulated glass, TightSeal technology and sensor closing.


So whether in a hospital, a grocery or retail store, a hotel, office or public building, or anywhere else, automatic sliding doors are always worth considering as they can bring great benefits to nearly every environment. Learn more at
