Automatic Entrance Systems

Presented by Amy Simmons, RA, LEED AP+

Architectural Specification Consultant, Stanley Access Technologies, LLC

While transporter and warp drive technologies may still be a few years away, automatic entrance systems today are not far from those seen in Star Trek TV shows and movies. This presentation by Amy Simmons of Stanley Access Technologies, for architects, engineers, specifiers, owners, and other design professionals, will provide an overview of automatic door systems typically designed, specified, and installed in commercial and industrial applications. Primary focus will be on the most common applications with swinging and sliding doors.

Learning Objectives: By the end of the program each attendee should have a basic understanding of: the function of automatic door systems and components including activation and safety systems; how to layout automatic entrance systems considering traffic patterns and safety requirements; the design-critical coordination issues encountered with other trades; and, code requirements for accessibility, egress, and safety.

This program is accredited for 1 LU/HSW with AIA CES. Certificates will be available to all attendees, issued by email following the meeting.
