- The door should be quiet and smooth.
Convert Your Manual Door to an Automatic Handicap Door Opener
There are different opening options like a push button or wall switch.
Each of these can be hard wired into your electrical system or wireless.
For private businesses that do not deal with the public, we can also offer a card reader style that will accommodate your employees
In some cases, it may not be necessary to install a completely new door.
It is possible that the hardware can be upgraded or replaced to meet all regulations.
Depending on your existing door it may also be possible to add low-energy openers to convert a manual door to one that is easily operated by someone who is disabled.
Our technicians are also able to provide various handicap door repair services.
We are qualified and trained to work with many of the top names like Ditech, Norton and others.
Common problems include:
• An obstruction can block the sensors, the mechanisms could jam, or someone stopping the doors in the process of opening can cause them to become stuck.
• The battery could be depleted or malfunctioning causing the remote control to fail or be sluggish.
• The push buttons can fail.
We are also available for routine maintenance or preventive maintenance services for the handicap door system you already have installed.
