Service Needs for Philly’s Automatic Doors

Automatic doors are becoming the number one choice for commercial and industrial buildings, even for older buildings. The option to be hands free or have minimum hand contact is both a health and convenience benefit. The appearance of sleek automatic doors is another reason for their popularity. Combined with security features such as keyless entry, automatic doors also increase a building’s safety.

These doors do need regular maintenance though, and they sometimes need repairs. Advanced Door Service is Philadelphia’s go-to professional squad for all your door service needs, with AAADM certified technicians and fast service.

Backed by the company that invented sliding doors over 50 years ago, Horton Automatics, we bring over half a century of industry wisdom. Our expert installation and follow up maintenance can reduce the chance of needing repairs. But when fixes are needed, we provide rapid response to service requests and send our technicians with fully stocked vans, making on the spot repairs possible in many cases.

Malfunctioning Doors Are More Than an Inconvenience

Foot traffic moving smoothly from the Philly streets into your building and from room to room is something you take for granted until something goes wrong. But when automatic doors malfunction, life in your building is turned upside down.

Even if you create a workaround, traffic through other entrances may become congested, slow, and unsafe. The inconvenience may be a deterrent to customers who don’t want to deal with the chaos. And this may give them a negative and lasting impression that you can’t handle your business — or theirs.

This is especially true if the door stays broken for days, even though you have done everything in your power to get a service technician on site. Slow repair service and multiple trips for parts can have a big impact and cause potential safety and security issues. 

And dealing with these issues takes your time too – whether you’re interrupted during a business project or missing the last few minutes of a Flyer’s game. You need the problem solved quickly.

Providing the Commercial and Industrial Door Service You Need

Whether you have the standard automatic doors, or you’re in Philly’s original city with older, retrofitted doors, our technicians are trained to work with them. Swing and fold doors, sliding doors, revolving doors, platform screen doors, or specialty doors in a medical facility – our team has the expertise to install, maintain and make repairs on all types of doors, door operators, and accessories.

And our technicians tackle service calls throughout Philadelphia. Whether you’re near the airport, in the heart of Old City, out west on Baltimore Avenue, or up in Fishtown, we can get there fast.  With 12 techs in fully stocked vans, we have the largest, best-prepared presence in the city.

Keeping our vans stocked is crucial to keeping you up and running. While other technicians might return to their shop for even simple repair parts, we keep enough materials in play to meet many door repair needs on the very first visit. We respond to your initial request within 2 hours, and we offer 24/7 service for emergencies.

We also send the starting lineup, techs certified with AAADM (American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers) training, experienced, and local. We are dedicated to giving you the freedom to focus on bigger things by taking care of this essential part of your building’s service. 

Plus, our local company is backed by the resources and long-term experience of Horton Automatics. We also belong to several professional organizations and stay on top of technical and regulatory changes. We adhere to the highest standards for quality and are fully versed in ADA requirements.
