Automatic Swing Door Operator Systems
A swing door operator is beneficial for commercial settings but it can also be used in the home setting as well. This is a great option for someone who needs more independence when trying to get in and out of the home and doesn’t have the grip function or capability to grasp a handle on a door.
With this type of automatic system you can have a variety of ways the door will open for access. You can have a push plate on a wall close by the door that you can easily press to open the door. You can have it be a sensor motion. For example, if an individual in a wheelchair can’t press a button they can have a sensor on their chair so when they approach the door it will automatically open. You can also have mats, radio controls, or card readers. With automatic door operating systems you are not limited in the capabilities or ways you can utilize it to meet your needs.
