FAQs

What are the benefits of automating an existing door instead of replacing the complete system?
The main benefits are that the installation can be carried out quicker and more cost effective, you do not need to purchase new doors, etc. All automatic door operators will allow you to interface with an existing access control system and electric locking. The operators can be powder coated to match the colour of the existing doors and frame. We would need to carry out a site survey to ensure the appropriate operator and safety devices are chosen, contact us to arrange.
Can you automate an existing fire door?
Yes, some of the operators are fire rated to 60 mins and you will need to make sure that any operator has a fire test certificate. The majority of them will fail closed in the event of power failure or fire alarm system so that the fire door will still be compliant following the installation. You can automate single or pairs of doors even if they are rebated and ensure they will always close in the correct sequence creating a fire barrier. We would need to carry out a site survey to ensure the appropriate operator and safety devices are chosen, contact us to arrange.
What happens to an automatic door in the event of a power failure, can I use the door?
Yes, many of the swing door operators’ power open and close by the means of a spring, like a door closer. This will mean that without power it will be possible to push or pull the door open by hand. During commissioning or a service, we have to measure this force to ensure it is below the maximum permitted for compliance to BS EN16005 for this reason. Also, there are some operators which can be specified with a battery back up which will enable the door to work as a fully automatically for up to 60 minutes following a power failure.
Why do you need to carry out a site survey and not give me a standard price for an installation?
During a site survey we will discuss your requirements, design a system which complements your building and surroundings. Due to the cost implications of materials the size of opening, glass specification and type of door system would affect the price. The users of the system be taken into account and a full risk assessment needs to be carried out to ensure that it is safe, reliable and easy to use. We would only provide a system which we would offer a service contract agreement upon to give you piece of mind and warranty.

“TAfter having a disappointing response from our door installers I looked for an alternative solution and found BH Doors and Engineering on-line. I spoke to David and he arranged to come within a couple of hours and arrived when he said he would. He could not have been more thorough or conscientious, and once he finished our door was working better than it ever had! Thank you David – one of our customers described you as the ‘door doctor’!”
