Automatic door operators come in a wide variety of options. There are many things to consider when choosing what auto operator is right for your project. Cothron's Security Professionals are ready to help you make the right choice.
Doors equipped with low energy operators can opened manually or through the use of a "knowing act" device (i.e., push button, wall switch, or hands free device).
Per the ADA (American's with Disabiliies Act), low energy door operators can provide greater accessibility for openings used by mobility-challenged individuals.
They can be found in entrances to public buildings, including schools, libraries, museums, offices, and government buildings.
High energy door operators are designed to operate quickly and continuously for optimal convenience. They are activated via motion sensors when approached by pedestrians.
You will most often find them at entrances to supermarkets, emergency rooms and retail stores. They include provisions such as guide rails and safety sensors, to reduce the potential for personal injury or entrapment.
