Automatic Entrances


Use this section to specify aluminum-framed glazed automatic entrance doors and related sidelites for use in exterior or interior locations.  Automatic entrances may be either floor supported or overhead hung, hinged or sliding, and are typically operated by motion detectors, push buttons, or card readers.


Units can be aluminum-framed or all-glass type.


Breakaway panels are typically required to permit egress in emergency situations.


Finishes for exterior aluminum must provide resistance to weathering and ultraviolet degradation. Class II anodizing and lower quality painted coatings may not suitable for exterior use.
