Frequently Asked Questions About Automatic Doors:

In most cases, we are able to install automatic doors into existing manual door systems. We would need one of our engineers to conduct a site survey to verify this.

Automatic doors are not a legal requirement per se, but may fall under the “reasonable adjustments,” madated by the Equality Act (2010). This is the major piece of UK legislation that sets out the requirements for equal access to services, businesses and premises. New buildings are covered by building regulations: you can read more in Approved Document M.

Regardless of whether you are legally required to install automatic doors, you may find that the improved customer access to the building is worth the investment.

Yes, automatic doors must be maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s guidance. Failure to do so could result in prosecution if an unsafe or poorly maintained door were to cause injury.

BS EN 16005 recommends a service by a qualified technician once every 6 months. There are also additional checks to automated doors that should be conducted on a regular basis by a suitable member of staff such as a building’s caretaker.

We offer a maintenance plan for customers looking to ensure that their doors remain in good working order and legally compliant.

The best type of doors depends on your business needs. Generally speaking, our commercial clients go with automatic sliding doors or automatic swing doors. Both offer advantages depending on your location and the type of premises. We’d recommend reading our guide on the different types of automatic doors, available by clicking here.

For industrial clients, we offer a range of automatic doors including: roller shutter entrances, high speed doors and personnel or cold room doors.

Although automatic doors rely on providing power to a motor, they can still be operated during a power cut. All doors are supplied with emergency systems that allow the user to open them manually.

During emergency situations it is essential to evacuate a building as quickly as possible. We are able to integrate automatic doors with your building’s emergency systems, such as fire detection systems, to automatically open doors and have them remain open to help with a building’s evacuation.

This can make them a better choice than manual doors for ensuring the safety of your building’s users.
