In buildings where sanitation is important (such as a hospital), automatic doors are very beneficial. They can help keep both the patients and staff safe, by letting them move through the building conveniently and efficiently.
One thing that needs controlling, is cross contamination. This is very important in places like hospitals, as various infections (viral and bacterial) can be spread by hand. Automatic doors can limit this risk as they don’t need to be touched. This is handy for those who have their hands full or are pushing a patient in a wheelchair. They are particularly important for when hygiene is a priority, such as intensive care units, operating theatres and isolation areas. These doors need to be properly installed and maintained, so that they can continue to be reliable and safe for everyone in a sensitive environment.
