Types Of Automatic Doors

There are different types of automatic doors: swinging, sliding and folding. Sliding doors provide two-way traffic and can swing open when pushed out in emergencies.  This type of door requires an adequate amount of room to move.

Folding doors are another type of automatic door which in contrary to sliding doors need minimum space to install and use safely, making them  the more popular choice when space is limited. Folding doors should include sensors or control mats and safety signs

Swinging doors consist of two doors – one inward and another one outward. These automatic doors enable two-way traffic. It is important to indicate on the doors the direction of traffic in order to avoid hazards and ensure the safety of users.
