Automatic Doors Birmingham – Residential Care Home
A residential care home recently contacted ERREKA with the request of automating a mobility store room door. Beforehand, the store room relied upon a manual entry door. As it stood, it was clearly not suitable for purpose; the door proved much too hefty (and tiresome) for residents, requiring extra aid from staff. Subsequently, the client hoped that the addition of Automatic Doors Birmingham would make the process of parking and fetching scooters far less troublesome for residents.
In tandem with their primary objective of making the store room more accessible, the client stressed that the automatic opener must secure the store room. The client also expected the automatic door to endure all weathers and be sturdy enough to handle knocks and scrapes. Moreover, the client required an efficient and cost effective solution. Finally, the installation should cause minimal disruption to end users.
Taking the client’s requirements into close consideration, ERREKA recommended the PREMIS 120 swing door opener. Due to the pre existing manual entry door, installation of the automatic opener was simple and straight forward resulting in minimal disruption to residents. Included with the package was full safety access control. This security feature integrates a keypad, requiring a code in order to gain access to the store room. Subsequently, residents can rest assured that their property is safe from the threat of theft or vandalism. In addition, ERREKA fitted finger guards to protect residents from trapping their fingers in the door. Furthermore, Premis 120 features robust design and silent movement ensuring a long life span. To prevent wasted energy, the Premis 120 will seal the room, making it completely airtight. This means that heat is trapped inside the building; making visits to the store room more pleasant for residents.
Both the client and the residents were over the moon with the result. The residents were able to access the store room without fear of battling against the heavy manual door. This enabled them to be more independent and get more out of their scooters.
