For these rooms and areas in nursing homes and senior living facilities, Horton Automatics offers an array of durable and reliable automatic door systems:

  • Revolving Doors: Horton Grand® and MiniGrand® revolving door systems are ideally suited to the requirements of healthcare facilities. These doors can be customized to the right diameter and speed to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers. 
  • Sliding Doors: Engineered to meet the challenging demands of nursing homes, which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Swing Doors: These systems provide ADA compliant handicap door openers and high-traffic automatic access. 
  • Swing Door Operators can be installed at new construction or to upgrade an existing door.

Automatic doors are an appropriate and beneficial choice for nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This technology serves both to enable and limit independence, depending on the circumstances that apply for each installation. For caregivers in facilities with elderly residents, automatic doors can be an extra tool to safeguard residents. For facilities looking to allow residents, visitors, and staff to move about more easily and quickly, automatic doors offer convenience and freedom for users, regardless of their physical limitations.

Patient Wander Management Systems

Does your facility utilize Patient Wander Management systems?

Texas Access Controls can make sure your new installation works seamlessly with any existing Patient Wander Management systems you have in place.

Wander Management Systems consist of RFID-enabled technology that tracks patients within set borders to guarantee their protection. Most are specifically designed for Alzheimer and dementia patients allowing them to have freedom within their resident facilities while giving them essential security. By utilizing the patient wandering system, medical staff is able to monitor these patients while attending to other responsibilities.

We recognize how important these systems are within hospitals, nursing homes and senior living homes. Our team will work with you to make sure your system stays intact.

Senior Living Facility Fire Door Inspections

Fire door inspections are the first step toward fire door compliance. Fire doors must be tested and inspected on an annual basis. A ruling of non-compliance could have tragic consequences.

In order to protect against the spread of fire and smoke within, into, or out of senior living facilities, the facility manager(s) needs to implement preventative maintenance and fire door inspection programs in accordance with local and national standards. Fire door failures in an emergency can happen due to lack of maintenance, physical damage to the door, the closure, guides, tracks, or by obstacles blocking the fire door. Each of these put employees and customers at risk in case of a fire emergency. You can schedule your fire door inspection here.
