Automatic Sliding Door Sticker Placement and Decal Requirements

What Stickers Are Required For Automatic Sliding Doors And How Do I Install Them?


Full automatic sliding doors are used as storefront entrance doors for nearly any type of commercial building including grocery stores, retail stores, hospitals, and more. Per ANSI A156.10 requirements, full automatic sliding doors should have the proper decals to identify the entrance as an automated one and also instruct pedestrians with the operation and function of the automatic door system. In this article we explain the proper mounting locations of automatic door stickers for automatic sliding doors, as well as the proper ANSI decals which should be used.

ANSI states that all sliding doors shall be equipped with signage visible from both sides reading, "AUTOMATIC DOOR" (decal Gbelow) with letters 1/2 in. high minimum.

The signs shall have red backgrounds with contrasting letters 1 in. high minimum. Thesigns shall read horizontally and be located adjacent to the lock stile on a center line 36 in. minimum and 60 in.maximum from the floor applied to the side appropriate for egress.

ANSI states that sliding doors that slide alongside an adjacent sidelite or wall shall be equipped with a sign that instructs users tostand clear (decal H below) of the sliding door travel path.
