Inspections, Service & Preventative Maintenance
Automatic Doors require an annual inspection. Our technicians are certified to Install, repair, and perform regular maintenance checks on a virtually any Automatic Door configuration. Our inspections follow the American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers (AAADM) standards including a written inspection report. Automatic Doors also need adjusting and lubrication. Most customers prefer to engage Silco in an annual or semi-annual preventative maintenance program to help improve reliability and unwanted breakdowns.
Improved Safety & Security
Other than excellent functionality, automatic doors provide enhanced safety and security. During a fire emergency, a door can be set to hold itself open, allowing those inside to get safe and easy passage from the building. These doors can also be closed remotely once all personnel have evacuated the area. 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, the doors can automatically lock and restrict access into the building.
Ways To Activate
Automatic Doors work by using motion sensors. These sensors are placed on the sides or on top of the sliding doors to detect moving people that intend to enter. 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 people with disabilities, as they are not limited on how they would be able to access the building. Silco can install, repair and perform regular maintenance checks on a variety of Automatic Doors.
