Types of Automatic Sliding Doors
Commercial automatic sliding doors are a great way to accommodate simultaneous two-way traffic. Their flat panels slide horizontally and linearly, so they don’t require as much space as other automatic door styles such as swinging or revolving doors. Plus, because the door leaves slide away from people walking through, they area also safer. They come in a variety of configurations to fit almost any building’s needs and can be operated by either sensors or control mats. Sliding doors are a great way to make your building ADA compliant as well. Call Automatic Door Systems for any sliding door service from repairs to installations.
Commercial automatic sliding doors are very efficient at controlling directional traffic. You can set up one entrance for entry traffic and another doorway for exit traffic. Automatic sliding doors are available in a variety of configurations including single slide, bi-part slide, and telescopic slide. Sliding doors are usually furnished as complete packages and the mechanism can be surface mounted or concealed overhead (in-transom mounted). We can professionally install commercial automatic sliding doors in your Kansas City business. Here are some common options for sliding door styles:
Surface Mounted: These sliding doors are very popular because of their installation flexibility. They can be surface mounted to existing structures with little or no modification. Surface mounted sliding automatic doors are ideal for retrofits or smaller openings that may not have enough room for and overhead concealed configuration. Surface mounted doors allow for a wide range of door materials to be used including wood, hollow metal and stainless steel.
Overhead Concealed: Overhead concealed sliding doors have the mechanism hidden in a header above the door. The header sits flush to the door jamb and is very unobtrusive so it looks seamless. These doors can span 16 feet without any intermediate support needed.
Telescopic: Telescopic sliding doors are best when space is a premium. Telescopic doors allow for a door opening about 30% wider than standard sliding doors. They are easy to install and maintain, provide low energy consumption to operate, and are even available in an energy saving EcoDoor upgrade design.
EcoDoor: These sliding doors are all about increasing energy efficiency and convenience at the same time. Eco Doors are designed to reduce air infiltration by as much as 40%.
