K-12 School Doors

Do your school doors make the grade?

Students can be tough on doors, yanking them, slamming them, barging into them both coming in and going out. Weather certainly is rough on entrance doors, subjecting them to pelting rain, high winds, freezing cold and scorching heat.

To be effective, school entrances, classroom doors and school restroom doors must provide:

Accessibility: School entrances and classrooms must accommodate students and staff who have different needs to enter and exit a school building easily.

Durability: School doors must withstand high winds, tornadoes, flying debris, rain, hail, snow, cold and heat.

Safety: Parents expect their children to be safe while at school. School entrances and school doors must provide the most impregnable barrier possible between students and teachers and intruders or other security risks.

Horton Automatics designs, develops and delivers a versatile selection of high-performing, long-lasting manual and automatic doors that are ideal to meet the accessibility, high usage and security demands of entrances, classrooms and restrooms in schools and all other educational institutions.
