Horton Automatics: The Pioneer of Automatic Sliding Doors

In West Palm Beach, FL, sliding glass doors are a common feature of commercial buildings like hospitals, airports, and retail stores. If you’re planning to build or renovate a commercial space, you can call in professionals to install impact sliding doors to improve the customer experience, manage traffic flow, and support the security of the building. But without a little-known company called Horton Automatics, this technological innovation wouldn’t have been possible.

When you watch this video, you’ll hear how Horton Automatics invented and manufactured the first automatic sliding glass door in 1960. Over the years, the design has been improved upon, with safety features like incorrect direction locking, body and foot detection, and emergency stops. Now, you can even have a window and door company customize your installation choices.
