Swing Doors & Automatic Swing Doors
Advanced technology means that EAS can offer a wide range of bespoke swing door options to make the most of your space and suit your every need. From low energy swing doors, ideal for DDA entrances, offering a solution for disabled access for any building, to fully automatic entrances more suitable for retail units. The slim and stylish swing operator, only 85mm high, is installed on the transom above the door and connected to the leaf with either a push or a sliding pull arm.
The intelligent and reliable microprocessor allows for many programmable features. This enables us to set the operation to your needs. Durability and reliability makes this operator perfect for heavy footfall scenarios in places such as shopping centres. Its silent operation also means it is perfectly suited to an office or care home environment.
EAS automatic swing doors can be integrated with the latest activation technology, from push pads for disabled access or motion-sensitive radars to security access control devices, remote key fobs, and video entry systems. The versatility of automatic swing doors also allows them to be used with a wide range of electric or electromechanical locks such as Mag locks, strike locks, or electric panic bars, making them a great choice for secure entrances throughout new and existing buildings.
Our swing operators also allow us to retrospectively install most existing swing doors, allowing you to achieve DDA compliance in a cost-effective way, while simultaneously providing convenience and safety.
What is an Automatic Swing Door?
Most existing manual swing doors can be adapted to automatic and turned into an automatic swing door, whether it's an entrance or exit point. These can be installed in a wide range of environments, which include hotels, hospitals, schools, offices, and any type of private or public accessible building.
Furthermore, they can be installed in any place that has enough space to house a swing door - such as a shop front, or in indoor corridors. Swing doors and automatic swing doors are some of the most popular products in our range as they are easy to install, highly sustainable, and efficient. On top of that, automatic swing doors take up minimal space while maximizing opening width, and can enhance the accessibility and capacity of any entrance or exit point.
Where can you not use Swing Doors?
Swing doors are very safe and appropriate for 90% of environments. There are not many scenarios where you could not install one. Swing doors also have the advantage that they do not require a lot of space to be installed unlike sliding or telescopic doors.
Where are Swing Doors installed?
Swing Doors can be installed in most buildings such as hospitals, hotels, public buildings, shopping centres, and many other places, whether it's at entrance or exit points. If there is not a lot of space available, swing doors are a perfect solution, as you don’t need any additional space to install the doors and they take up minimal space, allowing for maximizing opening width.
Swing door and automatic swing door operators are installed onto the actual frame on the transom and do not slide past frames or move anywhere else. Swing doors do however require an area in which the door can swing (swept area), and an area of 1.5 m to allow for sensor (automatic) activation. As they reside within their own frame and swing back and forwards, there are virtually no space limitations for them. Therefore, they are an excellent and cost-effective option for almost anywhere.
What are the costs for Swing Doors?
Swing Doors in their basic form are not expensive to install. Costs may vary depending on what you want the door to do, as there is a range of products and auxiliary products that can be fitted with swing doors. These include activation sensors, DDA compliant push pads, access control devices such as keypads, fob readers or video/audio entry call points, along with electric locking. However, the actual automatic swing door operators as a basic package are very affordable.
Can you help with the maintenance of manual and automatic Swing Doors?
Yes, we have packages in place to ensure you get the most out of the lifespan of your door or automatic swing door. Entrance Access Solutions recommends that you have your manual or automatic doors maintained once every six months.
Within our maintenance package, we come on-site and perform a full check of the door and automation such as any consumable parts which may experience wear and tear from the day-to-day operation of the door. For example, these types of doors swing on a bottom pivot, which can get worn. Similarly, there are also top pivots that can get worn over time.
Whether it's a manual door or an automatic swing door operator, there are a lot of movable parts. For this reason, it's recommended that you contact us so we can visit and deliver our services, including carrying out a full maintenance inspection every six months. After the inspection, we can make recommendations in case of required repairs or suggested upgrades to the system or other features, to further improve safety, convenience, and accesibility.
What materials do you use for Swing Doors?
When it comes to installing new manual or automatic swing doors, Entrance Access Solutions recommends the use of aluminium. This is a very durable material for both internal and external doors that has many other advantages over other comparable materials. Additionally, when we are asked to install automatic swing doors on an existing system, we can accommodate any material that the door is made of.
This includes timber swing doors, steel swing doors and toughened glass swing doors. We can automate pretty much any type of swing door for you by adding swing door operators. These types of doors have the advantage of being retrofitted into any environment quite easily. In places where any type of hinged or pivoted door is in place, EAS can help replace, maintain, upgrade, or automate it.
How long does it take to install a Swing Door?
We usually aim to complete installations within one working day. However, this can change depending on the type of door and the work that is required. We always aim to ensure that your premises are secure at all times. We install swing door operators for both internal and external doors, such as shop fronts on a street or internal office doors. Installation usually takes place during working hours but we can accommodate you during out of office hours if required.
