Automatic Door Benefits

 

When customers first come to your commercial location, the first thing that they will notice is your doors. Automatically opening and closing doors make a great first impression on any customer, since they make it much easier for them to enter or exit your location. They can make your business less hectic, more efficient, and more convenient. When an automatic door is properly installed by a professional, they offer a plethora of benefits, such as:

Lessening Traffic

Automatic Doors reduce the traffic flow through your business. Visitors won’t have their pace slowed by manual or slowly revolving doors, and can quickly and safely enter and exit since the door opens automatically for them.

Makes your Business Energy Efficient

Automatically shutting doors work with the structure of your building, and can be locked after closing times. They respond to weather, and won’t allow for air transfer with the space outside your shop, helping lower the energy bills for heating or cooling your store.

Wheelchair access regulations UK

Wheelchair access regulations UK have been put in place to stop discrimination against the disabled and the physically impaired. Since the Disability discrimination act of 1995 many steps have been taken to ensure that wheelchair users can access all public buildings in the same way as the average person who doesn’t suffer from mobility issues. Since 1999 all businesses in the UK have been told that they must make the necessary changes to their buildings to ensure that wheelchair users can access them without difficulty and since 2004 to adapt physical features.

Hands Free

This makes it easier for customers or workers to enter or exit your business even when their hands are full of packages, bags, or working materials. Any adult with a small child will appreciate being able to enter or exit a store without having to let go of their kid’s hand. All in all, it makes it much more convenient for everybody.
