  • Common areas
  • Restrooms
  • Secure areas

The Automatic Choice

Automatic doors are an appropriate and beneficial choice for nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This technology serves to enable independence while simultaneously limiting it, depending on the circumstances for each installation.

For caregivers in facilities with elderly and disabled residents, automatic doors can be an extra tool to safeguard residents. For facilities looking to allow residents, visitors and staff to move about more easily and quickly, automatic doors offer convenience and freedom for users, regardless of their physical limitations.

Addressing needs for accessibility, security, comfort and energy savings, Horton offers a wide variety of automatic doors perfectly suited for the unique challenges of nursing homes and assisted living centers.
