AUTOMATIC DOOR OPERATORS
With Disability Discrimination Act legislation now in force, automatic doors are becoming increasingly popular.  The DDA states that providers of goods, services or facilities have a duty to ensure that those with disabilities can access public buildings unaided.  As an independent company we are able to select products from suppliers that manufactures to a high standard.  This ensures that products are reliable and are suited to your individual needs and requirements.  All our engineers are highly experienced and all works carried out on automatic doors complies to standard BS 7036. 
As well as providing new installs we can also automate existing doors to ensure they comply with the DDA, carry out repairs to any existing automatic doors and also provide bi-annual or annual service contracts.
There is a wide range of automatic door systems and operators available to suit any application.  Our experienced team will be able to advise on the most appropriate system during a site visit.  We have wide experience of installing different operating systems such as:
Sliding door operators Swing door operators
Telescopic sliding door operators Bi-folding door operators
