Horton Automatics Automatic Door Operators and Parts

The Invention Of The First Automatic Sliding Door

Today automatic sliding doors are taken for granted, but back in the late 1950's and 1960's they were ideas so far fetched it seemed like it could be from a science fiction movie. In the 1950's, a gentleman by the name of Lew Hewitt and another gentleman by the name of Dee Horton came up with this exact idea; building an automatic sliding door. It was no secret that the severe winds in Corpus Christi, Texas caused nothing but trouble for the common swing door. This is what sparked the idea for these two gentleman. So in 1960 Lew and Dee formed Horton Automatics and introduced the first automatic sliding door for commercial applications.

Pioneering the Automatic Door Industry

By inventing the automatic sliding door, Horton automatics essentially created a whole new industry. To this day Horton Automatics still remains a leader in the industry. From the creation of the company in 1960 to present day, Horton Automatics has designed many generation of automatic sliding door operators, each one improving off of the older generation.
