How re-fitting existing automatic doors can assist in reducing costs and also ensure that doors are now working efficiently and above all safely.
Automatic Door Situation:
A private health care company based in Redditch needed to have their existing automatic swing door operators replaced to ensure a smooth entry and exit to and from the building for their clients and employees. Another aim was that security measures needed to be greatly improved. The automatic door operators that were currently in use did not have enough functionality to meet the client’s goals and were no longer working effectively, the sensors had become faulty and the high pedestrian traffic in and out of the building for a great many years had certainly taken its toll on the old automatic door operators.
The major concern that the clients had was that the automatic door openers being used at present could in addition cause safety issues as the sensors were often unable to detect objects or individuals that were in the path of the sensors defeating the objectives of having automatic doors installed.
Automatic Doors Solution:
As an answer to the problems that the Harmony Health Care Company were experiencing with their old automatic door openers, ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd installed a new set of ERREKA 120 automatic swing door operators that are equipped with all the necessary accessories. Fortunately, there was no need to replace the existing doors, as the ERREKA automatic door operators are ideal for any style of automatic door systems.
To maximize the functions of the new set of automatic door operators ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd recommended the following accessories.
– Pull arms that are designed for doors that open inwards.
– Key switch that has three settings: “off” to turn off the automatic function, “hold” to keep the doors open, and “auto” to turn on the automatic mode.
– Access control – this only allows entry to personnel who are provided with an access card. This is designed to be used after office hours so that only authorised individuals can enter the building.
– Push pads – providing a push to open function, which is perfect for use during office hours so that clients can easily enter the building without waiting for assistance or authorization.
– Activation sensors that automatically open the door when individuals intend to exit or enter the premises.
– On-Door safety sensors detect if the doors are obstructed in some way or other causing the automatic doors to malfunction.
ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd conducted thorough testing after the installation of the operators to ensure that the automatic door operators and all the associated parts were working correctly. The directors of Harmony Health Care were more than satisfied with the outcome. The directors and management no longer have to worry about injuring any of their clients or employees due to faulty automatic door sensors. Additionally they do not have to be concerned about the security of their office outside working hours.
Harmony Health Care is a very busy company who caters for medical health insurance for all population groups and it is therefore very busy and employs over a hundred employees. Alongside this, the pedestrian traffic in and out of the office building is magnified with the huge number of clients that they have to accommodate every day; however, there has been no overcrowding in their entrance or exit ways.
The ERREKA 120 automatic door openers are manufactured from a high quality and durable material enabling the system that ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd installed to last for a great many years before it needs replacing. The key switch of course is a very useful tool that enables the automatic doors to be left open especially when Harmony Health Care have deliveries and need to keep the doors open for a short while, The delivery teams can easily enter and exit the offices by themselves without asking for assistance from the employees which will invade their working patterns.
