 “When you think about automatic doors you may initially imagine large department stores or business offices, but they can hold advantages to all business owners no matter the size of your premises ”

As customers, we take automatic doors for granted when out shopping, but retailers are always looking to improve efficiency, safety, customer convenience, and the flow of foot traffic.

They can also improve the outside view of your premises to give a clean inviting outlook for your customers.

Below we will discuss what we think are the 5 main points in considering automatic doors for your retail business:

  1. Convenience

In this modern world we are all about making things easier and convenient, nobody likes having to open a door when you have your hands full of shopping bags, pushing a pram or struggling with reduced mobility. Automation eliminates these problems and makes life a whole lot easier when out and about shopping.

  1. Reducing energy costs

You can save up to as much as 30% on your heating costs by the simple fact they are never left open. They are only operated on approach and close quickly behind to reduce the cold air flow that could enter the building. Reducing your carbon footprint and reducing those high bills.

  1. Safety

We can all remember a time when a manual door has caught us or trapped us when we try to sneak through. Automatic doors reduce accidents from them closing, tripping hazards from doorsteps and even deter unwanted pests or intruders into your building.

  1. Hygiene

Since the pandemic we are all more conscious of hand cleaning and the spread of germs especially in crowded areas. With automatic doors there is no need to touch a handle or surface while out on a shopping trip. It provides your customers with one less thing to worry about while reducing your need to keep the surfaces cleaned.

  1. Customisable

Automatic doors are available in a range of colours, sizes and styles to meet the look and brand of any building. You can also add sensors, timers and other add-ons to make the them safer and more efficient for users. Each business have different needs and they need to be considered when making your choice.

Automatic doors can add a host of advantages for your business but it’s always best to speak to one of our team to plan the best option for you.
