Horton Automatics has been designing, manufacturing and selling automatic doors since 1960, when we developed the first automatic sliding door in America.
Horton Automatics brings convenient access to commercial, industrial, and institutional locations. Our doors meet or exceed the exit requirements for every major code in the United States, as well as providing compliance for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Metro-Dade. Every automatic entrance manufactured is treated as a special custom order while still providing the fastest delivery time in the market today.
Horton Automatics is a division of Overhead Door Corporation. Overhead Door invented the first upward-acting door in 1921 and the first electric door opener in 1926. Today, Overhead Door continues to be the industry leader through the strength of their product innovation, superior craftsmanship and outstanding customer support.
Parent company of Overhead Door is Sanwa Holdings Corporation: Established in 1956 as a shutter manufacturer, Sanwa pioneered the engineering, production, marketing and distribution of steel building materials throughout the Pacific Rim. Today, Sanwa is the number one manufacturer of construction products in Japan, and has leveraged its brand equity to become the recognized industry leader worldwide.
