No matter where you are, you want to feel safe within your environment, especially in the education system. Schools must be functional yet safe for students of all ages, especially young children. At Door Controls, we can help give students, staff, and parents the peace of mind needed for a successful school year. Here, clients have options that are ideal for education buildings that house many people at once.

Whether you are looking for extra security, fire protection, or doors that open on command, Door Controls has options for your education facility with Horton Automatics and Won-Door offerings. 

Why Choose Door Controls for Your School Door Needs?

When creating the best space for school-aged children, college-bound teens, or vocational students, you want the entrances to the building to be secure, easy to open, safe from damage, and backed with professional and convenient maintenance.

Easy Access for the Disabled

Doors designed by Horton Automatics help schools adhere to the Disability Discrimination Act, providing more accessible access to the school building, classrooms, and restrooms for those who have a hard time pushing and pulling on manual doors.

Automatic doors make movement throughout the building easier for anyone in a wheelchair or who uses a walker or crutches. Revolving doors provide ample space and make it much easier for people with mobility issues to access doorways.

School Safety – Security and Fire Doors

Sadly, the safety of our schools is a huge topic in recent years. With the assistance of Won-Door, Door Controls is making school a safer space for children, teachers, and staff, offering schools products to protect against fires, intruders, and more.

Won-Doors can stop intruders in their tracks with these added benefits: 

  • Access Controls – limits access after hours or in emergencies at the push of a button. Connects to external peripheral devices such as a keypad, card reader or fingerprint authentication device. Blocks sight lines and keeps out unwanted intruders.
  • High speed closing options – compartmentalizes buildings in seconds while still meeting ADA requirements and allowing for safe and secure passageway. Shut and lock corridors with a push of a button.
  • Fire Protection – Won-Door pioneered the development of the first-ever accordian type, fire-rated horizontal sliding door.  The doors provide fire protection while also providing an increased traffic flow and easier egress. 
  • Cost Effective – Minimizes costs by allowing for security on fire doors and increases leasable space. Integrates with existing systems, replaces costly fire-rated glass and lowers maintenance costs, providing larger more open spaces for less.

Won-Doors Provide help provide efficient use of space for foot traffic.

In addition, Horton offers bullet resistant glass on several of their door systems: HD-Slide™, HD-Swing™, several Horton Revolving Door systems (Grand®, MiniGrand®, AutoFlow™, Visdom Elite®) and Secure Exit Lane systems. 

A blast resistant and hurricane-rated sliding door system from Horton Automatics  is designed to meet the US Department of Defense United Facilities Criteria (UFS): UFC 4-010-01 anti-terrorism standards for blast resistance.


With revolving, sliding, folding, and touchless options, there is no lack of accessibility with a wide range of doors.

Our product offerings make life easier for everyone on school grounds, from the youngest kindergarteners with backpacks a little too big to distracted high schoolers with phones in their hands.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Keep your schools up-to-date with a modern appearance by swapping old doors with tiny glass slots or no windows with beautiful doors by Horton.


Since the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are taking a closer look at proper hygiene and finding ways to make their schools safer for students’ health.

Contactless doors provide just another barrier for your students, teachers and parents from germs. We offer hands-free door opener installations that keep the germs that plague door knobs and handles away from students and staff.


Sadly, schools are going through more than ever, and our children’s safety and protection are of the utmost importance when ensuring they receive the best education possible.

With security door options from both Horton and Won-Door, parents can feel comfortable knowing their child’s school is protected.

Options available for K-12 include:

  • Bullet Resistant Glass Doors
  • Blast Resistant Door
  • Won-Door Fire & Security Doors

Using Won-Doors can also provide an easy escape from fires and other dangerous situations. School safety and security are covered with the help of Won-doors.

Colleges and Universities

Vocational Schools

In a vocational school, students can learn valuable trades hands-on. Since their hands are always busy and likely full, automatic touchless doors are a must.
