Security, Efficiency and Accessibility: The Advantages of Automatic Door Systems

05 June 2024

Automatic Door Systems

Today, efficiency and convenience are key to remaining competitive in business. One frequently underestimated element that can greatly enhance these aspects is the use of automatic door systems.

At A-Plus Security, we understand the critical role these systems play in not only improving operational efficiency, but also in ensuring the safety of your staff, premises and enhancing your overall customer experience – all whilst keeping costs low.

Read on to explore the myriad of benefits that automatic door systems can offer to establishments of all sizes:

Increased Security

A-Plus Security think safety first. Automatic doors can be integrated with advanced security systems, including access control and intercom systems for enhanced security externally. These doors can be linked to existing access control systems and intercom systems, ensuring only authorised personnel have access to restricted areas. Internally, the doors can release automatically via a sensor, allowing for seamless and secure movement within the building. Additionally, features such as automatic locking and remote access control add an extra layer of security, deterring unauthorised entry and potential theft.

Enhanced Accessibility

Automatic door systems are designed to provide seamless entry and exit for everyone, including those with disabilities, parents with strollers and customers carrying goods. By eliminating the need to manually open heavy doors, businesses can ensure compliance with accessibility regulations and create a welcoming environment for all. This improved accessibility can translate into increased foot traffic and customer satisfaction.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a growing concern for businesses looking to reduce operational costs and their environmental footprint. Automatic doors can significantly contribute to energy savings by minimising the loss of heated or cooled air. These systems are equipped with sensors that ensure doors open only when necessary and close promptly, maintaining indoor climate control. Over time, this can lead to substantial reductions in energy bills and a more sustainable operation.

Improved Hygiene

In light of COVID19, maintaining high hygiene standards has become paramount for businesses. Automatic door systems eliminate the need for physical contact with door handles, reducing the spread of germs and bacteria. This is particularly beneficial in high-traffic areas such as hospitals, restaurants and retail stores to protect the health of their employees and customers alike.

Customisation and Versatility

One of the standout features of automatic door systems is their versatility. They can be tailored to suit the specific needs of different businesses, whether it's a sliding door for a retail store, a swinging door for an office building, or a revolving door for a hotel. Advanced technology allows for programmable settings, ensuring the doors operate efficiently under varying conditions and requirements.

Cost-Effective Security Maintenance

Modern automatic door systems are built to be durable and require minimal maintenance. With regular inspections and servicing by professionals like A-Plus Security, businesses can ensure the longevity and optimal performance of their doors. This reduces the likelihood of costly repairs or replacements, providing a cost-effective solution in the long run.

Incorporating automatic door systems into your business infrastructure offers numerous advantages that go beyond mere convenience – making these systems a clever investment for any forward-thinking business.

What our
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

International Group of Schools

We chose A-Plus Security to carry out the upgrade of our electronic security systems for our 9 colleges and they have far exceeded our expectations in their approach to the projects. We are a UK wide organisation where the planning and mobilising of these major project around term times is time critical and A Plus Security have been nothing short of fantastic in the communication, there design proposals, openness to last minute changes, pre and post-sales support and their management of 3rd party companies and IT services. We would highly recommend A Plus Security to any organisation who are looking to install or upgrade their systems.

Nationwide Groups of Colleges

A Plus Security exceeded all expectations, following a late award of the contract due to a different contractor pulling out. All fire and security works were completed when requested and signed off on finish, with no issues noted. We have continued working with A Plus on following projects and would fully recommend them.
