10X Increase in Automatic Door Use
Due to sanitary and health concerns, it is becoming normal for people to push the automatic door button instead of touching the door handle. Door operators are wearing out more quickly than ever. And older operators may not have parts available readily, or at all. Our goal is to keep your doors working …

Perfect for sanitary no-touch operation of your automatic doors. Wave-to-open switches require no contact to open your doors.
Sensitivity can be adjusted from 4″ up to 12″
Available with stainless steel or polycarbonate face plates, and existing push-plate switches can be upgraded to wave-to-open.
Most wave-to-open switches have an illuminated bezel that changes colour to signal the door is being activated to open.
No Wires & No Batteries
Technology keeps advancing. Wireless and battery-free contact push-plate switches make installing and upgrading your door operators easier, and cut down on maintenance required.
They also stop the need to change the appearance of your space (no surface-mounted conduit or wire mold needed to run signal wiring).
These switches use the action of pushing the button to generate the electricity to send a wireless signal to the operator. This makes them ideal for applications where running wires to the switch will be costly and unsightly. They also have a great advantage over the previous battery operated wireless switches which can require frequent battery changes in high traffic areas.
Barrier-Free Washroom Door Interlocks
Washrooms have gone touchless … faucets, toilet flush valves, soap & hand towel dispensers.
Now, you can use touchless wave-to-open sensors for your automatic washroom doors.
You can also install push button locks that work seamlessly with your door operators for handicap washrooms. These interlocks have illuminated colour indicators to show if the washroom is empty or occupied.
Another popular option is to enter the washroom by only scanning the access system fob, and exiting by waving your hand in front of the sensor.
That way, the washroom is more safe and secure.
Safety Railings for Automatic Doors
Railings are required in many circumstances to:
- Safeguard patrons on the sidewalk from automatic doors opening
- Create a mounting point for access buttons for the door to open
- Serves as a maximum opening stop limit with a small rubber bumper
- May save your exterior door from being damaged by strong wind gusts
We install custom railings for your automatic doors that adhere to accessibility regulations and provide a complete platform for wired or wireless switches and fob readers.
Wires are run safely through hollow tubes. No danger of tampering. Available in various designs and colours. Powder coat finish. Fastened to the door frame and anchored to the concrete floor
