I never gave much thought to where automatic doors and drive-thru windows come from until I learned about Southwest Entrances, which recently finished constructing a new office and warehouse at 2673 S. Lakin Ave.

The company, which also has offices in California, specializes in the planning, sale and installation of commercial sliding, swinging, bifolding and revolving automatic doors, industrial sliding, swinging and clean-room automatic doors as well as ICU/CCU doors and drive-thru windows. The company also services all brands of automatic doors.

SW Entrances is the authorized distributor for Horton and Dorma automatic doors in San Diego, Imperial and part of Riverside counties in California and Yuma and La Paz counties in Arizona.

For an automatic-door demo, quote, technical advice, contact Southwest Entrances toll-free at 888-793-6879.
