On March 19th, we celebrate the automatic door, a life-changing product that doesn’t get nearly as much attention as it should.
Automatic doors have made everyday tasks much easier and safer to tackle, especially for those with full hands, who are wheelchair-reliant, have physical ailments, etc. However, it doesn’t seem these door systems get the recognition they so rightfully deserve.
For this reason, the American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers (AAADM) began celebrating automatic doors on March 19, 2019, and every year after.
The Impact of Automatic Doors Over the Years
According to research, nearly 98% of customers said they would prefer automatic doors installed in every public building they visited. Why? Because of all the great benefits these systems offer.
Our team at Horton Automatics of Ontario is confident any business that upgrades its manual doors to automatic ones will notice and benefit from that decision. How?
Improved and Adaptable Access to Public Buildings
Thanks to automatic door technology, everyone can enter and exit public buildings such as doctors’ offices and retail stores with ease. Unlike manual doors, you can open and close automatic commercial doors regardless of physical condition or disability.
Touch-Free Entrances and Exits
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, touch-free devices have become essential, especially in commercial locations such as hospitals, airports, malls, etc. Automatic doors provide safe access to these public spaces, eliminating the need to touch storefront door handles.
Automatic door openers in commercial settings can save tons of money over time. These devices are known to save on utility bills from heating to air conditioning.
Along with saving money on your monthly bills, you will also save over time with long-lasting, low-maintenance doors compared to manual options that bang and slam hundreds of times a day.
