    an automatic door that isn't automatic as you have to do something for it to open.

    How ironic.

    However, the Oxford online dictionary states

    automatic

    • adjective 1 operating with little or no direct human control. 2 (of a firearm) self-loading and able to fire continuously. 3 done or occurring without conscious thought. 4 (of a penalty) imposed inevitably as a result of a fixed rule


    So little human control applies.

    God I'm sad....

    I think you all are missing the point!

    It looks to me like one of these doors that are normal push type for people that are able to do that, and a push button automatic for people who can't - specifically people in s, or even the elderly.

    It's less expensive to convert a normal push door into that type of automatic one than to install the fully automatic ones that open when you walk towards them. With the new laws on access for the disabled, you'll see more and more of that style around. Another reason why places don't fit the fully automatic ones (apart from the cost) is so that they don't have their front doors swishing open every time some Tom, Dick and Harry in the street walks too close to the outside sensor.

    We have that problem at work too since the DDA came into force. Door openings have to be a certain gap to allow access through

    Can I suggest you're all taking this a tad too seriously, after all it is in "comedy, humour and games". I think it's been posted to raise a few smiles
