An increasing number of commercial property owners in London and across Ontario are now turning to automatic doors, and with good reason. Having an automated door in your office, shop or warehouse comes with numerous benefits, such as:
Convenience and improved accessibility: Enhanced accessibility is an essential factor for commercial spaces. Hands-free and automatic doors make it easy for disabled people, the elderly and small children to access your building.
Energy savings: Automated doors only open when someone is actually using them. This prevents your doors from being left open and releasing hot or cold air outside which helps you to save energy and reduce your heating and cooling bills.
Control traffic flow: A rush of visitors in commercial settings like retail stores can cause congestion at and around manual doors. Automated doors can help to control pedestrian traffic flow and ease of access in and out of the building.
Compatible: Our automatic door operators are compatible with wood, steel and glass doors of all sizes. They are also easy to integrate with your access control and security systems.
Affordable and durable: Automatic door systems are inexpensive to buy, can work well for a long time, easy to install and maintain.
Powerful and smooth: Automatic door systems can open extremely heavy doors smoothly and silently.

WHEN TO INSTALL NEW AUTOMATIC DOORS?
Automatic doors offer several benefits and they will allow your customers equal accessibility regardless of their physical ability. Breakdowns are unavoidable and after constant use, they do need to be updated and replaced when you begin to notice the following signs:
Your door does not close properly - Sensor issues, warping or tracking problems could lead to your door not closing properly. If troubleshooting the issue doesn't solve it, you could consider replacing your system.
Constant repairs - If you find that you are constantly paying for repairs and your costs are adding up, installing a new door may be a cheaper solution. The repairs can be costly for your business and inconvenient for customers and guests who cannot access your commercial space.
Outdated building access - Updating traditional doors for automatic ones will make your business more accessible to everyone, especially all your customers who are physically less abled. You'll be seeing a lot more customers who could potentially generate more income for your business by installing modern automatic doors.
