Modernity and Aesthetics

Automatic doors are well-known for the convenience and access they provide, but they are also versatile elements of building design. Architects around the world have found ways to integrate automatic doors gracefully into a wide range of architectural styles – everything from sleek and modern to stately and historic to charming and quaint.

The American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers (AAADM) demonstrates through the creativity and thoughtfulness of its member companies that automatic doors have come a long way since their inception and can blend into most any architectural style.

What makes them so versatile? It's the wealth of custom designs, colors, finishes, shapes, and framing that can make an automatic door suit any type of building.

With commercial buildings, first impressions matter. Automatic doors provide a dramatic and state-of-the-art entryway, with countless designs and colors, from classical to modern. Building owners and consumers alike appreciate the beauty of automatic doors. Studies show that consumers perceive businesses with automatic doors as having a higher level of service than businesses that don't.

Automatic doors can also reduce wasted energy and decrease overall heating and cooling costs. That's because automatic doors open and close only when a user triggers them. Automatic doors also shut completely, preventing the escape of air.

Then there is the well-established convenience of automatic doors. They make entering and exiting a building easier for everyone: people with physical challenges, shoppers with packages, families with children, and workers carrying tools.

Automatic doors are an aesthetically pleasing entrance solution, adding safety, comfort, sustainability, and convenience. With proper installation, annual inspections by certified AAADM inspectors, and daily safety checks by premise owners, automatic doors provide easy access to buildings for everyone.
