So do parents with strollers, those with physical limitations (such as needing a cane to steady their gait), and us modern folks who carry a device in one hand and a latte or espresso in the other. Automating a door makes it much easier for any one with these normal, everyday life occurrences to enter or leave a building, without worrying about a heavy door to maneuver and hold open to allow passage.
A security team can remotely control doors, allowing access to only those who belong in the building, in addition to denying access to anyone who doesn’t. If a building needs to be vacated due to an emergency situation, doors can be automatically held open for faster evacuation to safety.
Hygiene Concerns Are Addressed
Automatic doors are operated hands-free, which gives an advantage to any facility where sanitation is essential (like medical centers and food production facilities). An air-tight, automated door can help inhibit dirt and dust from entering, due to the internal area’s increase in air pressure. Surgery suites and environmentally controlled laboratories are ideal candidates for door automation.
Space And Energy Are Saved
If space is tight, consider installing automation on doors. Sliding or telescopic options eliminate the floor space a swing door needs. Also, only necessary opening of doors will happen, and they will close once the passenger has walked through, saving energy and keeping the building’s interior, comfortable temperature steadier. The rate at which the door opens is important too, as the less time open, less energy and climate control will be lost.
Easy Use and Maintenance
Quality, safety, and reliability are top concerns for Summit Automation, as are simple maintenance and controls. Once installation is complete, our systems require very little effort to maintain. Although unlikely, should any issues arise, take comfort in knowing support is a simple phone call or email away.
