Nothing says ‘welcome’ better at a retail store than an open door. While it may be inviting for your customers, an open door also means a compromised indoor climate. Store entrances with wide openings impact indoor temperatures, increasing the discomfort of both employees and customers in hot or cold weather.

How can you get it right?

Pleasant indoor climate for happier employees

Customers expect a pleasant indoor climate when they enter the store, and they tend to stay longer in a store that is neither too hot, nor too cold. It’s also important to take into consideration the comfort levels of employees who are present in the store throughout the day. Maintaining the right temperature is absolutely essential for employees who spend their entire working day in the building.

When you install doors that open and close automatically, it is possible to maintain an even temperature throughout the day.

Energy savings with a smart entrance

Saving energy is good, both for the environment and your business. With electricity prices constantly on the rise coupled with increasingly stringent regulations demanding zero-emission buildings, you need to think ahead and make sure your store doesn’t leak hot air during the cold season or cold air during heat waves.

Today, there are many solutions that can help you in your endeavour to save energy and cost, without making your store entrance any less welcoming.
