There are two main types of Drive Thru Windows, standard bi-parting and alternative single sliding windows. Traditional centralised Bi-Parting Drive Thru windows, work just fine, but what if you have restricted distance between the windows? Changing to single sliding Drive Thru windows, allows the opening to be situated to one end of the booth, giving the vehicles in the lane more distance between each car.

All Drive Thru booth types can be changed from bi-parting aluminium windows, to single sliding windows, handing can be from right to left or left to right, the choice is yours. We can change a flush fitted window or a canopied window to suit.

Servicing & Maintenance

Next Doors offers repairs, servicing and maintenance for your manual or automatic doors, Drive Thru Windows and roller shutter doors.

Automatic doors and Drive Thru windows are under constant use and may suffer from accidental damage or wear and tear. A regular service is the best way to ensure smooth operating, reducing down-time and to keep faults to a minimum.

Maintenance is also essential to comply with non-statutory regulations governing the safe operation of door systems. Under current BS EN 16005:2012, to meet all requirements a service should be undertaken within 6 months of new installations on a rolling basis. Should your installation be approximately 10 years plus, you can have an annual service. These are not statutory requirements, so no services are needed to be undertaken however, should any incidents occur with the doors, a complete service history will be scrutinised, and the managing company will be liable.  

All our engineers are ADSA 7036 qualified to make sure your doors are fully functional, safe and legal for public use. From one-off service visits to yearly service plans, we can ensure your doors are in perfect working condition or provide a quote to remedy the issues as fast as possible.

Next Doors Ltd - What are the benefits of installing automatic doors?

What are the benefits of installing automatic doors?
Next Doors Ltd | servicedesk@next-doors.com | 0843 523 1063

Automatic doors not only offer convenience but also additional benefits such as:

Accessibility
Improved security
Hygiene control
Space saving
Energy saving
Easy to use and maintain
Improved image

They are used in many places with traffic such as hospitals, airports, shopping centres, office buildings, hotels and generally commercial and public buildings. They provide excellent customer service for those using them. Automatic doors can either be swing, sliding or revolving.

Accessibility
Automatic doors offer convenience to everyone using them, including those with baggage in both hands, those with pushchairs or wheelchairs or most simply in this modern age, those with a mobile phone in one hand and a coffee in the other. An automatic door allows visitors to pass through the door with ease without worrying about a heavy door to open, meaning your customers will feel welcomed from the moment they step foot in your premise. It is important to provide access for everyone regardless of physical capabilities.

Improved security
Automatic doors can assist in the management of security. Security will have the ability to control the doors remotely, meaning they can grant access to selective traffic or deactivate the door altogether to prevent people from entering. Alternatively, the doors can be set to hold open which is ideal for an emergency situation when the building needs to be evacuated in a timely manner.

Hygiene control
Being hands-free, automatic doors offer a great solution to facilities where sanitation is essential such as hospitals and food factories. An automatic door with an air-tight function can also prevent the entry of dirt and dust by increasing air pressure in the room. This is a great solution for operating rooms and other controlled environments such as labs.

Space saving
Automatic doors are ideal for buildings where space may be tight in the lobby, using a sliding door or telescopic door, you remove the floor space that would be required for a swing door.

Energy saving
The doors will only open when necessary and will close behind the user, thus ensuring the doors are primarily closed. This is essential to maintain the temperature of the building and for energy savings.

The opening and closing speed of the door also makes a difference. The automatic door must be opened whenever necessary to allow access to the services, the less time it is open, the less energy is lost. Buildings with doors that get left open spend more on heating or air conditioning. In contrast, low power systems such as revolving doors regulate the passage in and out of people and serve as a natural barrier to maintain the desired temperature. The outside air will never directly come into contact with the inside.

Easy to use and maintain
All our automatic doors are manufactured according to high standards of quality and safety and are easy to maintain and use. Once installed, their daily management requires little involvement and problems rarely arise.

Improved image
First impressions are important, and the first thing visitors will see are your entrance doors. When there are manual doors, the first impression is negative due to poor accessibility. With an automatic door, when users approach the building, they have a better perception due to their elegance, convenience, security and ease of use providing a better brand appearance.

Next Doors Ltd - The hidden reason your doors do not shut properly

The hidden reason your doors do not shut properly
Next Doors Ltd | servicedesk@next-doors.com | 0843 523 1063

Do your entrance doors shut properly? Have you already had someone out to fix the problem only for it to return?

A common issue with entrance doors is that they do not shut properly with one door staying open or
they can be very heavy to push or pull open followed by the door slamming shut behind you. Have you had door engineers out to fix the problem only to find the problems persist? Did they consider the problem could be due to stack pressure?

Stack pressure is a differing in pressure between the inside and outside of a building and can be used to naturally ventilate buildings. Cooler air from outside is drawn into the building at a low level, it is then naturally warmed up by sources of heat such as people, machinery and heating, then rises to the top of the building where it is vented out. This can also be reversed in the cooler months.

This is a regular issue during summer seasons where air con use is high and also during stormy weather conditions where the air pressure is affected.

What are the issues with stack pressure?

Although stack pressure is a good way to naturally add more heat to a building, it can also cause some issues. Stack pressure can create the following issues:

• Increases the buildings heating and cooling energy consumptions
• Creates noises and drafts through gaps in the doors and windows
• Can make manual doors very heavy to operate
• Air pressure will prevent the doors from shutting properly creating a security issue

If you have a manual swing door, the door will feel very heavy and may be shutting too fast which causes a safety issue with people getting caught in the opening. If you have an automatic swing door, you may find that one door will not close properly which causes problems in its own right.

Most automatic door companies will not be able to fix these issues. Most door technicians will simply look at the door equipment as being the issue. They will simply upgrade the equipment to a heavier duty, more expensive operator which will temporarily solve the problem however it will create new issues.

To solve these problems, the door technician will recommend a more powerful, heavy duty operator. Whilst this operator works perfectly well in periods of high air con use, during the periods where the air con is not as intense the door will become unsafe as it will have a high force behind it. Without the increased air pressure force it would usually experience, it can mean people get caught or trapped in the opening. Once the operator has started to wear it will lose power and the therefore the ability to shut the door and the same problem will occur.

How can Next Doors Ltd solve these problems?

We are different in that we are a complete solution provider, if during the site survey we can see you have a high stack pressure issue we will use our experience to provide a complete solution to the issue rather than simply patching it up. This can be done in a manner of ways such as reducing air con temperature, adding vents to doors and throughout the building. Depending on the situation a new operator may be required although it’s not always the solution to the problem. If a new operator is required, we would install a low energy operator ensuring you have no future issues with safety.
