Types of Entrance Doors For Pedestrian Use
Commercial Pedestrian doors are not all the same. There are many factors to consider, such as levels of traffic, space, size, finishes, etc. You want them to be efficient, convenient, and provide secure access, while leaving a positive impression on the people entering the facility.
There are a few different types of front entrance doors for pedestrian access, including sliding, folding, and swinging.
Sliding Doors: Sliding doors are often used to create two-way traffic in the same entry and exit points; mainly used in retail grocery stores, and similar. These doors can also be pushed open in the event of an emergency. Because these doors slide open, they require more side room to function.
Folding Doors: Folding doors, as the name suggests, fold in on themselves when opened; these doors don’t need as much side-room to operate as sliding doors do, making them an ideal solution when space is limited.
Swinging Doors: Swinging doors work as a single or double door solution; usually one set for entering and another one for exiting. These access doors are another solution that enables two-way traffic, creating a better flow in guiding pedestrians in and out of the facility. It is essential to label which door is for which direction of traffic in order to prevent safety hazards and ensure the wellbeing of customers.
