Case Study: Automatic Doors: Weobley Dental Surgery – Hereford

Weobley Surgery Automatic Doors Situation:

Weobley Dental Surgery is a long established, family-orientated practice aiming to ensure your visit is an enjoyable and stress-free experience. The surgery aims are to keep you smiling and to deliver the highest standards of dental care.  The existing entrance way has manual hinged swing doors in situation which apart from showing visible signs of wear and tear were not customer friendly and did not conform to the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act). The Dental surgery is well established within the local community and its patient list grows year on year.

The main purpose of the automation of the entrance/exit way is to ensure that the building meets modern safety standards in order to protect both the patients and staff. An additional goal is to make the dental practice premises comfortable, especially for the disabled and the elderly.

For their new automatic entrance door, the Dental practitioners contacted ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd to advise them of the best automated solution to meet their business needs.

Automatic Sliding Doors Solution:

To meet the requirements stated by Weobley dental surgery, ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd installed a new aluminium entrance with a ERREKA Ertain operator. Alongside the operator, 1 no ADSF Digital program selector, 2 no ADSF Activation threshold sensors and 1 no ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd side screen sensors and 1 no Morning entry key switch was supplied.

The entire automatic door system was designed and customised to blend in nicely with the existing structure. It was the perfect solution to fulfil all the objectives of the dental surgery for a variety of reasons. Firstly, the aluminium design and automatic sliding motion created a great visual for the surgery, one which delivered a sleek and modern look.

Secondly, the safety features of the automatic sliding doors will ensure that people coming in and out of the dental surgery will be safe. The motion sensor that comes with the unit is highly reliable, hence, it will not move if anything or anyone is obstructing the space around it.

Thirdly, the door system will provide the utmost comfort and convenience for everybody visiting the surgery and for the dental teams. The elderly and of course individuals with disabilities will no longer have to seek assistance with old heavy doors as they will automatically slide open to let people pass safely through. The automatic doors manage pedestrian traffic flow so there is no overcrowding at the entrance/exit ways as parents with pushchairs and wheelchair users can easily manoeuvre through the doors.

Automatic Doors Outcome:

After the high level installation, the dental practitioners were more than happy with the new automated entranceway into the practice.

People with disabilities, the elderly and infirm, commended the changes made; as it significantly improved their access to the surgery.
