Benefits of Automatic Doors

Automatic doors have almost become standard in most public places such as community centers, airports, hotels and supermarkets across Canada.

Some small business owners and property managers in Ontario have recently started to research automatic doors. Probably because they just find out the accessibility requirements (which are governed by Ontario’s legislation: the AODA and the Ontario Building Code). UTS automatic door specialists suggest that there are benefits to automatic doors besides avoiding costly penalties of non-compliance.

Automatic doors provide convenience, especially for older demographics and the disabled

The disabled and the elderly using mobility scooters or wheelchairs will greatly appreciate that the doors open up automatically for them as they no longer have to battle with an old heavy cumbersome door. They become independent and don’t have to struggle daily and rely on others for assistance.

Automatic doors build better brand images

Because they have become so common that people automatically expect them when entering many types of facilities.

Automatic doors increase business efficiency

These doors operate using a motion-sensing device and the right positioning of these sensors and careful installation is important to function properly.

Employees will take advantage of the automatic doors as they perform their particular day-to-day assignments and activities. It is favourable to wheel medical and refreshment trolleys in and out through automatic doors in hospitals and retirement or nursing homes. Additionally, the risk of accidents and injuries are significantly reduced.

Office workers rushing into their offices at the start of the day and exit at the end of their busy day will enjoy the convenience of an automatic door as they carry their office equipment and personnel belongings. Parents with little children will be relieved that they do not have to try and open up the old traditional doors while pushing strollers.

Automatic Doors save space

Automatic sliding doors and folding doors save more space than traditional doors.

Automatic revolving doors save energy

In 2006, researchers calculated that revolving doors exchange eight times less air than swinging doors, which can add up to thousands of dollars in wasted energy costs per building per year.

Automatic doors have a high ROI

Even though automatic doors provide high value, some people think they can be costly. However, they are more economical than many people estimate. It is cheaper to install automatic doors even for smaller businesses. There is also a more affordable option to automate the existing doors. UTS Group supplies a wide range of accessible automatic door operators.
