The world of doors can be a wide open and confusing one, but there are great options for any type of door you’re looking for. From steel front doors to wooden inside doors, from French style doors to barn wood sliding doors, and from glass screen doors to automatic doors, the world of doors is vast and offers many different solutions for the same problem: covering an opening and offering an entry or exit to any room. One of the leaders in automatic doors, especially for businesses, is Horton Automatics.
Horton Automatics specializes in automatic doors for businesses looking for sliding and automatic doors to help move their business along as quickly and smoothly as they can. Horton Automatics doors are often featured in health care facilities. Horton Automatics was started in the 1960 in Corpus Christi after owners Lew Hewitt and Dee Horton realized that swinging doors struggled in the windy climate of Corpus Christi. Horton Automatics placed the first commercial automatic sliding door on the market and created a whole new product and industry.
Horton Automatics’ products range from automatic sliding, swinging, and folding doors, revolving doors, service windows for drive thrus, controls and operators for commercial and industrial applications, and platform screen doors for light and heavy rail applications, making them the broadest in the automatic door industry. Their doors have appeared in places such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, casinos, and many other places. Some of the more unique projects for Horton Automatics includes the Back to the Future Ride at Universal Studios, the Star Trek Ride at the Hilton Hotel Las Vegas, and the Tower of Terror Ride at Disney World. Horton Automatics doors are also in numerous airports around the country, including Dallas Fort Worth, Denver International, London Heathrow, Mexico City, Beijing Capital, George Bush, and Rome Airport, among many others.
Horton Automatics offers a wide range of automatic doors that will fit just about any need that comes up. They also offer a wide range of products that are hurricane rated for the hurricane coastal areas of the country. The pressure requirements for these doors are determined by building structure, building type, entrance location, roof configuration, and wind speed. While there is not a place in the Black Hills that may need a hurricane safety door, their doors are tested and secured to withstand any type of weather that is thrown at them, including crazy South Dakota winters.
Be sure to ask any of our expert staff on which Horton Automatics door will best serve your automatic doors need and we’d be happy to steer you in the right direction.
