Automatic Doors: 3 Reasons Your Retail Store Needs Them

1 August 2016

Your business's door is the very first thing that customers will encounter when they visit your place of business. For that reason, you want a style of door that is going to make a solid first impression and make it easy for them to come inside and do business with you. It also doesn't hurt for the doors to look good, too. This is why automatic doors are perfect, as they offer a safer, more comfortable and elegant alternative to traditional doors. Here are a few more benefits that you will realize after the installation of automatic doors:

Energy Savings

Because automatic doors will only open when an object or a person triggers the mechanism and shuts after a reasonable amount of time has passed to allow the object or person to get through the door, wasted energy will be greatly reduced. One way this happens is because the door can never accidentally be left open, which can turn into a very costly error at certain times of the year. In addition, an automatic door has a tight and secure seal that prevents any heat or air from escaping around it. Overall, you should expect to see a reduction in your normal heating and cooling costs thanks to the cost-effective and energy-efficient automatic doors.

Smoother Traffic Flow

More often than not, revolving or manual doors will slow down the traffic coming in and going out of your store. Automatic doors will eliminate this annoying problem by ensuring that customers can easily, safely and quickly walk through as the door automatically opens for them.

Convenience and Access for the Disabled and Elderly

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that at least one of a business's doors be easily accessible for the disabled, which means that the door should require very little effort on the customer's part. Now, this doesn't mean that the doors have to be automatic, but automatic doors do provide ease of access and convenience for the disabled, elderly, and other customers. It is also important to keep in mind that automatic doors aren't just easy and convenient for the disabled and elderly, as they are also beneficial to parents with strollers, parents who don't want to let go of their child's hands, and able-bodied customers who have their hands full with shopping bags or packages.

Refinishing Your Front Door

After taking a good, hard look at the front of our house, I realized that I really wanted to take a little time to refinish our front door. It was weathered and unsightly, and I wanted to update it with a new coat of stain. However, I wasn't sure how much time or effort it would take, so I decided to take things slow and hire a carpenter to come and help me. He was incredibly helpful, and it didn't take long to completely overhaul the front door. By the time we were finished, the front door looked amazing, and I was really impressed with the outcome. This blog is all about refinishing your front door.
