Various options to activate automatic doors include:

  • Microwave motion sensors offering hands free activation.
  • Pushpads, touchpads and switches.
  • Manual actuators, hand-held fobs and receivers.
  • Infra-red automatic door sensors.
  • Pressure mats placed under foot to open doors when pressure is applied.
