The Benefits of Automation

It is hard to dispute the popularity of automation within modern society. It has played such a big part of our day to day lives that we now rely on it. Gone are the days of manually opening doors as automatic systems do all the hard work for us! Here at ABC Industrial we believe that automation is the future of technology, let’s take a look at some of the benefits it can provide.


Working in fast paced environments means that getting around quickly is an essential part of the job. By investing in automatic doors and other automatic systems you can improve the efficiency of day to day activities as they reduce the need to have doors held open. In addition to this, having automatic roller shutters on the exterior of a property can reduce the amount of time that employees spend manually opening up a store as the automation allows it to be done with the simple push of a button.


Getting around is fairly simple for able bodied people however for those with disabilities there are more challenges than there seems, especially if you require wheelchair friendly access. Whilst it is not a solution automatic doors reduce the amount of help that the disabled need and can help them regain their confidence and independence.


Some industrial equipment is heavy and manually operating it can be dangerous if mistakes are made whereas automation helps restore a balance as the only job on your part is the push of a button. With high quality and regular maintenance, automatic systems are said to increase safety and reduce the likeness of accidents in the workplace. Whilst some may see the negatives that a reliance on technology can bring, we choose to see the positives. It is thanks to automation that people with disabilities are able to regain their independence and socialise without a carer! Here at ABC Industrial we have an exciting range of automatic doors that are perfect for a variety of applications. Whether you are looking for a telescoping sliding door or prefer the traditional swing door, the team have got you covered. Get in contact to find out more information today!
