3 Reasons to Invest in a Sliding Door

With so much variety available on the market, it is important that property owners choose the most suitable automatic door for their requirements. After all, the size of the entrance, the budget of the client and the aesthetical quality of the finished product should always be taken into consideration. Here at ABC Industrial, we stock a variety of high-quality automatic door systems, including a popular sliding door variety. Read on as we go over three reasons to invest in a sliding door...

Are sliding doors aesthetically pleasing?

As the name suggests, sliding doors operate by sliding outwards from the centre and it is this smoothness of operation that makes them an incredibly beneficial investment, particularly when it comes to aesthetics. After all, the doors are traditionally fitted with glass panels which makes them a popular choice for businesses that serve the public and is why they are often found in supermarkets.

How much maintenance does a sliding door require?

Like most automatic systems, a sliding door uses a motor and motion sensor technology in order to open and close. This means that they require routine inspections from a licenced engineer in order to ensure that they are in top condition. With this said, this amount of maintenance is an expectation of any property owner which means that sliding doors are considered a low-maintenance investment.

What is the lifespan of a sliding door?

As a general rule, a well-manufactured sliding door will last for around 30 years, however, this figure can be heavily influenced by the amount of maintenance that the system is provided with. After all, they may be considered a low-maintenance investment but that doesn’t mean that property owners can expect to neglect their sliding doors during their lifespan, especially when high-quality maintenance can actually extend their longevity guarantee further! Here at ABC Industrial, we place a lot of focus on the functionality and aesthetic quality of our automatic doors in order to ensure that our clients are able to benefit from their investment as effectively as possible. Our range of sliding doors operate incredibly smoothly thanks to our expert engineering and synchronisation. To find out more information, get in contact with a member of the ABC team today!
