Non-contact doors are the most hygienic solution
Accessing a space by turning a knob, a handle or pressing a push button is a hygiene risk when it comes to public places with a lot of foot traffic. The most effective measure to avoid this contact is to have automatic doors.
Automatic doors and shopfronts are a technology that is already widespread in many shops, public buildings and health care facilities (where it is also desirable to have hermetic doors), although there is still a lack of awareness of their importance also as interior doors.
The technology is now available to prevent such contact. And it has also become an element that adds distinction to a business, to the point that having other types of doors that are less modern and less hygienic can even affect the image of the business.
One example is Erreka, where they build automatic doors that adapt to practically any space. They are well aware of the added value that this detail gives to a business because for customers it is a very convenient way of entering and leaving that has nothing to do with a manual door. But there are also advantages for the company.
In places where there is an enormous mass of people passing through, such as airports, train or bus stations and even shopping centres, they are an advantage in terms of hygiene because they do not have to touch the doors to open them.
Aiming for maximum energy savings
In addition to this important health advantage, there are also financial savings to be made. Having automatic doors ensures that there is always a closed space when people are not entering or leaving, without having to worry about having to do it manually.
In this way, if you have a heating or air conditioning system, it will perform much better and the heat or cold created inside will not be wasted, so also taking into account the electricity prices, this is a saving.
And especially when swing doors are chosen, the airtightness is maintained even better, avoiding mixing the indoor and outdoor environment. At the same time, we ensure that we are more environmentally friendly, an objective that should also be the focus of all companies today.
In the same line of savings, it should be noted that the large glass doors allow light to enter the interior, thus reducing the time during which artificial lighting is needed in the interior.
The list of advantages also includes security. Manual doors are more difficult to control, but automatic doors have security sensors that prevent them from closing on a user, just as they can easily be locked if necessary for security reasons.
This locking capability means that many companies choose to use them because of the possibility of being able to block them from opening or closing for security reasons. In terms of security, panic doors would allow a wide passage to speed up evacuation.
It should also be borne in mind that sliding glass doors give any space a feeling of spaciousness, generating a visual increase in space. In the same aesthetic line, it should be noted that they are synonymous with elegance as well as simplicity. And the fact that they allow views from the outside is a very attractive ingredient.
Because of its elegance and versatility, it is an ideal solution for businesses and public buildings as well as residential developments.
