Convenience, Security, and Peace of Mind: Why Your Business Needs Automatic Doors and Gates

Does your business still use manual doors or gates? Those space consuming and not so secure things? Well, you need to start thinking about it. They’re a hassle to open, especially when customers are carrying lots of things and for persons with disabilities. It might be time to shift to hassle-free, cost-effective, and more secure automatic doors and gates.


Straightforward Function

Automatic doors and gates work by using motion sensors. These sensors are placed on the sides of the sliding doors to detect moving people that intend to enter the establishment. Your customers and employees wouldn’t have to endure opening the door themselves. Some automatic doors also use weight sensors, in which the sensor is disguised, usually as a mat, and is placed in front of the door. It opens when someone steps on the mat. Automatic doors are also perfect for persons with disabilities, as they won’t have to worry about how they’d open the doors or if someone will open it for them.


Enhancing Store Security

Other than excellent functionality, automatic doors are a great boost to your business’ security. During emergencies, a door can be set to hold itself open, allowing those inside to get safe and easy passage from the establishment. They can also be set to remain closed to prevent intruders from getting into your establishment. This function is very useful when fires occur, as the doors can be closed to prevent the fire from spreading and causing further damage. It’s also useful when the establishment becomes part of a danger zone, as you can prevent people from entering.

Aside from making money, security should be one of a business’ first and foremost priorities. It’s important to keep your business’ premises secure. It doesn’t only protect you and your holdings, but it also protects customers. Strong security can give your customers a sense of trust when they’re inside.


On Preventing Disasters

Security lapses can cost your business a lot, as many dangerous things can potentially happen. The best way to prevent criminal activities such as robberies, is to not let the robbers get through your doors! The best way to do this is to use automatic doors and gates, as all you have to do is push one button, and you can prevent criminals from getting into the establishment. Either way, even if they manage to get inside, they are still in deep trouble as you can keep them locked inside and wait for the cops to come.

You pay a lot for allowing security lapses to happen. These lapses make you lose money, your customers’ trust, and it can also cause damage to property.  But, the greatest issue here is that the lives of your employees and customers, as well as your own, might be at risk. If you don’t want these things to happen to your business, automatic doors can be a great asset.
