ADA Automatic Door Operators

Provide compliant, easy access for everyone!

ADA Automatic Operators

Automatic door operators meet ADA requirements by providing easy access for disabled, elderly or frail individuals. They allow doors to be opened (using a push button, motion detector or other device) then closed, with the aid of a motion or proximity detector to determine when it is safe. They also provide hands-free access and, when a motion detector pad is used, they can help minimize the spread of germs in healthcare environments. In addition, automatic operators allow manual operation for regular pedestrian traffic and egress in the event of a power outage.

ADA Automatic Operator Types

Electro-mechanical Automatic Operators

These operators automatically open when activated. Medium-duty commercial automatic operators are often used in office building, restaurant or retail applications. Heavy-duty institutional automatic operators are typically used on cross-corridor doors and other frequently used openings in hospitals, colleges and student housing. The operators are gear-driven and designed for applications where automatic operation is the primary need.

Electro-hydraulic Automatic Operators

These operators are designed for manual opening applications, where there is occasional need for automating the door to meet ADA requirements. They are electrically powered, low-energy operators.

Just ask! Our professional project managers and estimating and detailing teams are experts with building codes and compliance and can help you select the optimum solutions for all your openings.
