Electric powered automatic doors either move along a fixed screen or wall or swing outwards to open.
An electric door will sit in a closed position until it is triggered by an activation device such as a motion sensor, pressure plate or button.
Electric automatic doors are perfect for most commercial environments as they are more convenient, more aesthetically pleasing and allow easy access for customers or staff with mobility disabilities.
Installation of a powered automatic entrance system can usually be completed in a single working day, depending on the size of the project. However, if a project requires multiple days to complete: Reactive Doors will always ensure that your premises are fully secured at the end of each day.
For a spectacular first impression in a shopping, commercial or industrial environment, a full glass electric sliding door is a great option.
Reactive Doors provide sleek, stylish, smooth operating doors which are spectacular and highly functional.
All of our automatic doors are available either as single or bi-parting systems depending on the size of your entranceway. They are available with insulated glass, additional safety features and a range of access controls.
Whilst the majority of our projects involve the installation of a brand new automatic door system - it is also possible for us to convert an existing manual door into a powered electric door.
An electric operator and sensor or button can be installed that automatically swing the door open when required.
It is much more difficult to convert an existing door into a powered sliding door however as these doors are specially designed to fit exactly into an aluminium mount. We can more economically upgrade older sliding doors however and are able to replace an existing non-electric swing door with a powered sliding system in the vast majority of cases.
Electric automatic doors are extremely easy to maintain. We only supply doors from established manufacturers with a reputation for safety and quality. There are only a few moving parts in an electric sliding or swing door operator and they are renowned for being reliable.
To keep your new electric door operating perfectly we recommend having your door serviced by one of our engineers every six months. One of our fully qualified door technicians will stop by and inspect all moving parts (carriage wheels, floor guides etc) and test all of the electrical components and motor. Every maintenance visit includes a BSEN16005 safety check to ensure your door is fully compliant.

Automatic doors are installed in many retail outlets and offices, and there are some very good reasons these businesses, big and small, choose the automated option over manually operated doors, including:
The convenience of power assisted doors (aka automatic doors or powered doors) can’t be understated. In retail particularly, staff numbers are often low and busy staff can’t always be relied upon to ensure the main door to the shop or showroom is open or closed.
With the installation of an automatic door system, whether electric sliding doors or automatic swing doors, staff are freed up to get on with other duties, and because many power assisted door systems can be controlled remotely, if the doors need to be opened or closed in an emergency or routinely, it’s easily done from another part of the premises.
Powered doors are controlled either by a pressure pad, a pedestrian operated touchless switch or a motion detection sensor. This technology greatly reduces the spread of germs and viruses (including COVID19) by eliminating constant hand contact often associated with a manually operated door.
Heating and air conditioning costs account for a large part of a retail business’s budget. Although these costs are unavoidable, they can be significantly reduced with the installation of an automatic door system.
Modern automatic doors are designed to remain closed whenever no motion is detected. This function helps to keep the temperature on the premises regulated, whether it’s to keep it warm in the winter or cool in the summer.
Automatic doors help improve the accessibility and overall experience of people with impaired mobility. As well as the automatic function, automatic doors are generally wider, allowing access for wheelchairs or other mobility aids, such as walking frames or mobility scooters.
Installing an automatic door system also helps your business stay within the law that requires business owners to ensure disabled people have easy access to all that a service provides.
