Auto Sliding Doors

Auto sliding doors also known as commercial automatic sliding doors are electrically operated automatic pedestrian doors which slide open when the activation sensor is triggered. Automatic sliding doors provide an automated entry for the elderly, disabled, and other pedestrians.

How Automatic Sliding Doors Work

An automatic sliding door typically consists of a dc motor which drives the doors open. The dc motor is controlled by a microprocessor control unit. A motion and presence sensor is mounted on each side at the top of the automatic door operator. As a pedestrian approaches the door, the motion sensor communicates to the microprocessor control unit to power the dc motor to open the door. For safety purposes automatic sliding doors also have threshold sensors which communicate to the control unit to keep the door open if pedestrians are in the door way.

Automatic Sliding Door Configurations

Full Breakout Automatic Sliding Doors

The full breakout automatic sliding door configuration also known as "FBO" is a design used for emergency exit situations. All moving door panels and stationary door panels have the ability to swing out.

Fixed Side Lite Automatic Sliding Doors

The Fixed Side Lite automatic sliding door configuration also known as "FSL" is a design where only the moving panels can swing out in emergencies. The stationary door panels are fixed in place and cannot swing out.

Surface Mount Automatic Sliding Door Configurations

In a surface mount automatic sliding door configuration, the doors and automatic header mounts to the face of the exterior or interior wall. Most automatic sliding door configurations are referred to as "concealed mount" since they fit flush in the wall. Surface mount configurations are installed on the surface of the wall, so they protrude off of the wall. Surface mount automatic sliding door configurations are often used on buildings where the door opening is too small for a concealed mount automatic sliding door.

Maintenance On Automatic Sliding Doors & What You Should Know

Automatic sliding doors are typically very reliable, but you may find yourself in need of repairs or technical help later on down the road. That is why you should always consider an automatic sliding door which you can easily obtain repair parts for. Today many automatic sliding door brands are not domestic. This means parts are limited or must be imported typically leading to higher prices for parts and repairs. ADA Door Operators offers domestic automatic sliding door brands with replacement parts readily available. If you need technical help, we also offer full technical support for each automatic sliding door configuration.

Automatic Sliding Door Colors & Finishes

Auto sliding doors are typically offered in 2 types of finishes, clear anodized aluminum which is a silver color and dark bronze anodized aluminum which is a darker bronze color. For most automatic sliding door installations it is best to match the finish of the storefront aluminum which is either clear anodized aluminum or dark bronze.

How To Order Automatic Sliding Doors

When ordering automatic sliding doors, consider which configuration would best suit you, full breakout, fixed side lite, or surface mount. Consider the colored finish you require. What additional options do you need? Do you require an electric lock, or is the standard thumbturn mortise lock sufficient? Do you require a door threshold, or would you prefer no door threshold? Consider all available automatic sliding door accessory options.
