Automatic sliding doors are one of the most effective and reliable ways to improve access to your business. Utilising motion sensors, pushbuttons or swipe cards, your clients and employees will appreciate your investment in providing convenient access systems.
Partnering with leading automatic door brands such as RECORD and Assa Abloy, the team at Go Doors can assess your requirements and provide a reliable automatic sliding door solution for any application.
Following installation, you can rest assured that your automatic sliding door system will continue to operate efficiently with an ongoing automatic door service agreement. Our service vehicles are also fully stocked with auto door motors and parts, available across the greater Perth metro region for emergency repairs.
Improve Access with Automatic Sliding Doors
Automatic sliding doors are a key element in providing accessible entrances for commercial buildings and shopping centres. They accommodate visitors, customers and staff who may have limited mobility, providing another layer of customer service and ease of access. Providing fully automated building entrances for people with a disability has also become a standard practice for new commercial building design in Perth.
Not only do automatic sliding doors provide better options for disabled visitors, but this technology also provides easier access for seniors with limited mobility, parents pushing infant prams, delivery professionals, and those carrying heavy loads. What’s more, they also keep you in compliance with multiple accessibility laws that may apply to your Perth property.
Better still, in a world in which we are increasingly aware of the effect of spreading germs, automatic sliding doors are the hygienic solution as they remove multiple points of contact and drastically reduce the spread of germs and viruses.
Automatic Sliding Door Applications
Automatic sliding door operating systems are essential in many commercial buildings, with many industries benefitting from automated access points. Automatic doors are particularly beneficial in:
- Hospitals, medical centres, and long-term care facilities
- Large and medium retail centres
- Shared office buildings
- Airports, bus terminals, train stations, and other public transit centres
- Museums, theatres, concert halls, and other sites of interest

Automatic Sliding Door Options
At Go Doors, we partner with leading automatic sliding door brands to find a solution that works for your business. Built custom to suit your access points and requirements, our experienced team have over 100 years of combined experience working with leading brands and businesses in Western Australia.
For most applications, we recommend the following automatic door systems:
Single Sliding Doors
Single sliding doors provide a single panel, often glass or plexiglass, although other materials are available to suit most applications. The single panel, when triggered by a motion sensor, push-button or swipe card, will slide to one side and allow visitors to pass through.
Bi-Parting Sliding Doors
Similar to the single panel sliding door, the automatic bi-parting doors include two panels that slide outwards from the centre. Automatic bi-parting sliding doors are commonly found in shopping centres, hotels and larger commercial buildings with ample entrance space available.
Telescopic Sliding Doors
Especially good for limited space, automatic telescopic sliding doors open in a single direction but have multiple panels that will stack into each other as the door opens. These automatic doors are also termed ‘stacking’ sliding doors.
Frequently asked questions
How do automatic sliding doors work?
When you install an automatic sliding door system, the door will include optical or motion-activated sensors, which automatically trigger when a person passes the entrance. Once activated, the sensors will convey the message to the automatic sliding door mechanism to open the door. After a period of time, usually three seconds or a set amount based on your requirements, the door will close by itself.
In some cases, automatic sliding doors may also come with convenient button panels that trigger the automatic door mechanism. These can be placed at easily accessible locations on either side of the door. These can help serve as an access solution for those with mobility challenges.
Can automatic sliding doors be opened manually?
All automatic sliding doors can be opened manually in the case of power outages, fires or malfunctioning mechanisms.
When you purchase a Go Doors automatic sliding door, our expert installation technicians will make sure to explain to you how to open your door manually in case of an emergency.
If you do experience a time when your automatic sliding door is not working correctly, we also have emergency door technicians available in the greater Perth metro area – available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Are automatic sliding doors safe?
Yes. Automatic sliding doors are entirely safe.
Although the standard amount of time your automatic sliding door will remain open is around three seconds, our doors come equipped with multiple safety features. These include sensors designed to block the closing mechanism in the case that something, person or otherwise, remains in the path of the closing door.
With over 100 years of combined experience, our experienced team will ensure you’re new automatic sliding door is safe for staff and patrons.
