Automatic Sliding Doors
In Kelowna, automatic sliding doors have revolutionized the way businesses operate by providing a touchless and seamless entry and exit experience. These doors are designed to function without physical touch, utilizing motion detection sensors that respond to a person’s presence. When someone steps in front of the sensor, it activates the motorized open and closing functions of the sliding door automation system. This allows the sliding door to open for a designated time and then gently close, ensuring a safe and hygienic passage.
Amid the recent spread and fears of diseases like coronavirus, the demand for touchless solutions has surged, making automated sliding doors increasingly popular in Kelowna. The elimination of doorknobs and buttons reduces the risk of transmission and gives peace of mind to both customers and employees.
One of the significant benefits of sliding doors is their construction using glass panels. By allowing ample natural light into the room, these doors create a bright and welcoming atmosphere. As a result, businesses can minimize their reliance on interior lighting, leading to reduced energy costs and environmental impact. Additionally, the glass panels offer unobstructed views of the surroundings, seamlessly connecting the indoor space with the vibrant Kelowna community, and making the area feel more open and integrated.
For businesses seeking a modern and hygienic solution that enhances energy efficiency and offers an inviting ambiance, automated sliding doors are the ideal choice.

Manual Sliding Doors

Pressed Steel Doors & Door Frames
Open door frame. This is the most common type of door frame construction in which the frame is composed of one horizontal head style that is supported by two even vertical styles at either side of the door opening.
Closed-door frame. Doors that open to the outside will typically feature a closed-door frame construction. Here, a bottom horizontal sill or threshold that connects the two vertical stiles at the floor of the building is added. This bottom horizontal sill provides a water-tight seal to help prevent energy loss.
Frame with panel glazing. Glazing panels generally take the form of glass panels that are installed at the very top of the door frame, on either side or both. This is for added aesthetics.
Pocket door frames. Pocket door frame construction is necessary for sliding doors as these pockets are built within the wall cavities to allow for doors to slide into the wall and not swing out when they open. Building pocket door frames is generally the most expensive of door frame construction, but once built, they will last for decades to come.

Drive-Thru Convenience Window
Drive-thru windows are something of a new invention, at least compared to standard doors and windows, having been invented in 1948 by Harry and Esther Snyder of the In-N-Out Burger Chain. These windows, as their name suggests, are designed to allow customers to easily drive through the ordering process.
Commercial doors and hardware are fantastic methods of security because they are designed for security. These are very durable things that are built to withstand extensive visitor and foot traffic — much more so than residential doors and hardware. When you go through a commercial door and door hardware services company, you will also have the benefit of professional commercial door installation which further enhances its security. This is because proper commercial door installation means no loose hardware, no openings that can be easily jimmied and broken into, and certainly no gaps that allow in undesired drafts. In other words, doors get chosen and installed to ensure maximum security as well as maximum comfort and ease of use.
Commercial doors also come with more advanced security hardware and mechanisms. For example, the doors we often choose include mechanisms like electrified locks, code entry, keyless entry, and similar systems that are more advanced than traditional residential doors. Our commercial doors also are built to adhere to the more stringent code requirements, such as accessibility requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
