There are 2 types of Automatic Door Systems.


Automatic Swing Doors

A swing door operator or swing-door opener, automatic swing door operator is a device that operates a swing door for pedestrian use. It opens or helps open the door automatically, waits, then closes it.


There are 3 basic types of swing door operators:

Full Energy – opens and closes the door at full speed.

Low Energy – opens and closes the door at reduced speed to limit the kinetic energy of the moving door to levels deemed safe for disabled users. This version of door operator, does not require any sensors as they are not considerate dangerous.

Power Assist – This is a version of the low-energy operator. It doesn’t open the door; instead, it lets the user open the door manually at a reduced force, compared to opening against a standard door closer. It closes the door with the same speed limitations as a low-energy operator.


Automatic Sliding Doors

A sliding door operator or sliding door opener, automatic sliding door operator is a device that operates a sliding door for pedestrian use. It opens the door automatically, waits, then closes it.

Sliding door operators are typically used on the outside doors of large retail businesses. This kind of door operators are also used in elevators.



A door operator may be triggered in various ways but requests that the door be opened (or reopened if it was closing). The operator will heed hat requests only after it is able to do so safely for any other users in the area.

Approach sensor (such as a radar sensor) – the door opens when a user approaches it.

Push button – the door opens when a user presses a button.

Push-&-go – the door opens fully when the user begins opening it.

Access control – the door opens when the an access control system determines the user is authorized to go through.



Random Testimonial

  • ~ Nirmesh Varsani (CEO, Kailash Joiners Limited)

    "We needed a CCTV system installed in our business premises. Zimcos AVS not only produced the lowest quotation but also specified higher end products than the other two competitors we had quote for the job. Installation was carried out quickly and professionally, time was taken to show us how to use the system both at the terminal and via our mobile phones and computers. When we had issues with our dynamic IP address Zimcos AVS knew of the problem before we did because of their attention to detail and great aftercare, and the next day came in to resolve issues and again setup all the external devices to veiw the system remotely. We have since had Zimcos AVS back again to quote for a door entry system and these works will be underway soon. It is a relief to find nice honest hardworking people who do not try and pass off faults once the job is completed even if the fault is caused by the internet provider they still endevour to find a solution. I will continue to use and recommend Zimcos AVS to other people."
