Automatic Doors in a Factory

Types of automatic doors

Automatic doors are doors that open and close automatically without requiring manual intervention. They are equipped with sensors that detect the presence of people or vehicles, triggering the door to open or close accordingly. These doors often operate using mechanisms such as motion sensors, pressure sensors, or remote control systems.

The most common types of automatic doors for commercial premises are:

Sliding doors are among the most common types of automatic doors. They consist of panels that slide horizontally along a track to open and close. Sliding doors are space-efficient and suitable for entrances with limited space or high traffic.

Swing doors operate in a similar way to traditional hinged doors, but they are equipped with an automatic opening and closing mechanism. Depending on the space you have available, these automatic door systems can be designed to swing outwards or inwards, making your space more efficient in the process.


Revolving doors consist of multiple door panels arranged in a circular configuration around a central pivot point. They allow for continuous entry and exit while minimizing drafts and maintaining energy efficiency by reducing air exchange between the interior and exterior.

The advantages of automatic doors

Whether you’re looking for automatic shop doors or sliding doors, these systems can benefit your commercial premises for a range of reasons:

Automatic doors enhance the convenience for customers and employees by allowing easy entry and exit without the need to physically push or pull the door. This is especially beneficial for individuals carrying items, pushing carts, or using mobility aids.

Automatic doors improve accessibility for people with disabilities, including those using wheelchairs, walkers, or mobility scooters. They provide barrier-free access, complying with accessibility regulations and making commercial spaces more inclusive.


Many automatic doors are designed with energy-efficient features such as sensors that minimize heat loss or gain by closing the door promptly after use. This helps to regulate indoor temperature and reduce energy costs for heating or cooling commercial premises.

Automatic doors incorporate safety features to prevent accidents and injuries. Sensors detect obstructions in the doorway, causing the door to stop or reverse its motion to avoid collisions. This helps to protect customers, employees, and property from harm.

In busy commercial environments, automatic doors facilitate smooth traffic flow by minimizing congestion at entry and exit points. They allow for efficient movement of people and goods, reducing waiting times and enhancing the overall customer experience.

Automatic doors can be integrated with security systems, such as access control or surveillance systems, to enhance security in commercial premises. Safety should be paramount on your commercial site, and automatic doors can help you to control entry/exit points, as well as protecting the occupants of your building and any assets on your site.

Overall, automatic doors play a vital role in commercial premises by providing convenience, accessibility, energy efficiency, safety, traffic flow management, and security, ultimately enhancing the operational efficiency and customer satisfaction of businesses.
