Depending on the type of property, your expected foot-traffic and available indoor and outdoor space, you can pick from the following types of automated door systems:

Sliding Doors

These are ideal for accommodating two-way traffic at the entrance and exit of your building, especially if you’re working with a limited exterior and interior space. They slide open and close quickly and safely to keep pedestrian traffic moving and allow enough space for visitors to circulate. Automatic sliding doors are also equipped with a “breakout” feature that allows them to be pushed open in an emergency and are available in the following configurations:

Single slide doors feature a single glass door that opens to one side.

Bi-parting doors consist of two sections that open on either side of the door.

Telescoping doors are bi-parting doors that fold or stack together on either side of the door to make better use of limited space.

Swing Doors

Automatic swing doors are usually installed in pairs. This means that one door swings inward while the other swings outward, which helps to accommodate two-way traffic. Such door systems include guide rails to ensure the door doesn’t strike a pedestrian when it opens and also includes an emergency feature, which allows you to manually open it if and when you need to.


Automatic door systems offer a range of functional and aesthetic benefits for commercial, municipal and residential properties, like:

  • Better accessibility
    Automatic doors offer easy and hands-free access. They can help make your visitors feel welcomed from the moment they step foot in your building, especially if they have physical disabilities and mobility challenges.


  • Improved security
    Automatic doors allow you to grant access to selective traffic or deactivate the system to prevent people from entering. Additionally, the doors can be set to stay open, which is very useful in an emergency if your building ever needs to be evacuated quickly.


  • Improved hygiene
    Automatic doors use sensors allowing for hands-free accessibility, which is great in facilities like hospitals, operating rooms, labs and factories that must be clean, sanitary and environment controlled at all times. An air-tight automatic door system can also prevent the entry of dirt and dust by increasing air pressure in the room.


  • Saves space
    Sliding or telescopic automatic doors are ideal in areas where space is limited.

  • Energy saving
    Automatic doors only open when necessary and immediately close behind the visitor, which helps to maintain the indoor temperature of the building and helps to save on heating and cooling.


  • Easy to use and maintain
    Our high-quality automatic door systems are safe and easy to maintain and use.


  • Improves image
    An automatic door can help make your home or office look more elegant while offering better accessibility and security, which gives all your visitors a better first impression than ordinary swinging doors.
