Doorway designs are constantly evolving and becoming more creative. We enter and exit doorways hundreds of times a day, so it is important that the designs we choose keep us safe and ease our passage. Read here to learn more about three different innovations in doorway design!

Automatic Sliding Doors


First, we have automatic sliding doors. Automatic sliding door systems can be used in your home or office for convenience, pet control, accessibility and much more. EVO Products has an Automatic Sliding Door System that can be used on any new or existing sliding door. With this system, as you approach the door it will automatically open and close behind you. You can automate both your interior and exterior doors, EVO’s Automatic Sliding Door System is most commonly used on pocket doors inside and patio doors outside your home. The systems are great for pets, it allows you to give them the freedom to go in and out as they please and not have to worry about other animals getting in. They are also a great option if you or a loved one has mobility issues. With automatic sliding doors they will be able to go in and out easily and safely. Automating your doors is a great way to use technology in your home and make life easier for you and your loved ones!


The Fire Door Closer


Second, we have the fire door closer. It is an essential safety device in many modern buildings. Fire doors are fire-resistant and prevent the passage of fire and gas from one room to another. This allows the door to stop the spread of smoke and flames for a significant amount of time, helping the people inside to evacuate safely. The automatic fire door closers are installed to ensure that after the door is opened, it returns to a closed position forming a seal so that it can offer maximum fire safety. They operate using the energy built up by opening the door to close it. This invention has saved many lives and could be a great investment for your home or office. 


Revolving Doors


The third innovation in doorway design is revolving doors. Revolving doors typically consist of three or four doors that hang on a central shaft and rotate within a cylindrical enclosure. They have many advantages compared to conventional entrance and exit arrangements. They are great for places where many people are going in and out quickly because they allow people to enter and exit at the same time without running into each other. They easily facilitate the movement of people in and out of the building while keeping cold winds out of the warm interior space. They also are good for access control because typically only one person uses each quadrant at a time. Revolving doors are often used as the front doors to airports and large department stores.

These are three innovative examples of doorway designs that may be useful in your home or office building!
