Case Study: Automatic Doors Dudley Taylor Pharmacy – Gwent

A few months ago the Procurements Manager of Dudley Taylor Pharmacies in Warwick contacted ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd for assistance in locating an automated door system for one of their small but busy pharmacist shop in Bulwark Road, Chepstow. The Bulwark Road area of Chepstow is a thriving shopping location for the local residents and Dudley Taylor Pharmacies is extremely popular within this little community.

Dudley Taylor Pharmacist Situation:

The owners of the chain of Dudley Taylor Pharmacists felt it was time to renovate the entrance of their building in Chepstow to give it a new fresh look while at the same time increasing the security of the premises. They aimed to achieve not only a fantastic new visual for the pharmacist but also to provide comfortable access for everybody who uses it. Many of the pharmacist’s customers are indeed elderly and they frequently struggled with the manually operated doors. The safety of the customers and staff alike is another concern for the owners.

In order to achieve these goals, Dudley Taylor Pharmacists needed to find an automatic door company that would be able to build in these requests in an automatic door solution. The pharmacy is open 6 days a week and in addition is open until 7pm most evening so it is imperative that the automatic doors were installed outside of business hours. This is when ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd were approached for assistance in this project. ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd carry out installations across the country and this area of Wales is no exception.

Automatic Doors Solution:

ERREKA Automatic Doors & Shopfronts UK Ltd suggested that a new aluminium entrance screen be installed alongside a new pair of quality ERREKA 120 automatic swing door openers. This design is perfect for smaller businesses that experience heavy traffic flow on a daily basis.

Aluminium with glass panels will instantly deliver a modern and contemporary look and will instil confidence in the pharmacist’s customers that it is a professional business that provides fantastic customer service. Aluminium is the perfect material for manufacturing door frames, it is both lightweight but sturdy and more than capable of withstanding our adverse weather conditions. The glass panels that were used on the screen are made of toughened glass that is also durable.

The automatic swing door openers addressed the need for safety and security. They can be easily locked to protect children inside the building and the automatic function is very helpful for smooth access or exit.

Automatic Doors Outcome:

Everybody using and working for the pharmacists in Bulwark Road was more than pleased with the result of the project. The aluminium entrance screen and the automatic doors created an impressive visual of the business. As the customers of the pharmacy had no idea the new entrance system was being installed on the Sunday it came as welcome surprise to have the doors open up automatically for them. Now the pharmacists could allow easy and straightforward access for everyone who wished to enter the building and it made perfect business sense for the pharmacist to become DDA compliant. DDA stands for the Disability Discrimination Act and demands that everyone should have the right of accessibility into customer facing businesses.

The pharmacist became a much more welcoming place as the glass panels allowed natural light to flood the building creating a warmer and more pleasant environment. Very soon after the installation of automatic doors the pharmacist noticed that their previously high gas bills had reduced.
