Pilot Doors are defined as a door within a larger door. Pilot doors are convenient to easily enter and exit a building without opening larger doors. This can save time as well as heating and cooling energy in extreme climates. In buildings that are designed without personnel doors using a pilot door is a good alternative.
- Incorporate a pilot door in:
- one piece canopy doors
- horizontal sliding doors
- one and two piece vertical lift doors
- full receding counterweight doors
- bifolding hanger doors
