Looking to Retrofit Your Existing Door to Automatic?

We’ve got you covered! We can install or retrofit an existing commercial swing, sliding, fire or washroom door to an automatic door with a touchless wave or motion sensor.

Prevent cross-contamination and never have to worry about touching a door to open it again. Simply, open a door with a hand wave or by approaching it. Furthermore, you can speed up the flow of traffic as automatic doors open without people having to stop and push a button.

“The two technicians that came in were very helpful and had a great attitude while fixing our two most pressing issues. After they fixed the first door, I could tell they were tired but they stuck around to help us with another dock door and were able to fix it as well.”
PepsiKatie Campagnolo, Supply Chain Operations Associate Supervisor, Pepsi
“I would like to the NDS team for taking care of our service shop door issue. The door into the service shop wouldn’t close flush with the ground and would not close on its own without holding the button down. We greatly appreciate the level of service we have received from the team at NDS, and thanks to them we now have a fully operational shop door ready for the busy weekend rush.”
ToyotaAndrew Ryder, Parts Manager, Bolton Toyota

“On behalf of the team at Policaro BMW and the Policaro Group, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for your quick response and action with respect to the damaged overhead door in the Service Department at our BMW facility. In addition to the repairs, you were also able to pinpoint the cause of why this happened, with respect to the proper operation of the door controls. Your instruction to myself and some of the team members at BMW was invaluable in highlighting to us the dos and don’ts of the proper operation of the door controls…hopefully we’ve all gained some knowledge from this and learned a lesson.”

BMWJoe Martino, Manager, Facilities & Construction, Policaro BMW & Policaro Group

“I find your Service department very easy to deal with, never an issue booking an appointment and the service people arrive quickly. Your Techs are great at answering my questions about what mechanical problems they find which is nice because I just like knowing what they found out of my own curiosity. They also do very clean work, which in the past with other companies, it looks like a mess when they leave. Overall, you guys do good work making sure our equipment is operational and safe.”
