STANLEY Access Technologies Introduces Dura-Glide DT

The newly announced Dura-Glide DT utilizes STANLEY Access Technologies’ Dura-Glide 2000/3000 automatic sliding door technologies to improve customer service at fast food restaurants.

FARMINGTON, Conn. STANLEY Access Technologies, part of the Allegion family of brands and a provider of automatic door solutions and service, has announced the launch of Dura-Glide DT, an automatic drive-thru window and door hybrid designed to help fast food and QSR brands face their greatest challenges at the drive-thru.

Developed alongside global QSR leaders, the Dura-Glide DT provides flexibility to operate in window or door mode, so that staff can easily service drive-thru customers as well as parked patrons and third-party delivery services.

“The pandemic revved up drive-thru innovations, and these trends are here to stay. Dura-Glide DT is our solution for the changing face of the QSR industry,” says Greg Erickson, national account manager at STANLEY Access Technologies.

“Increased traffic, online ordering and demand for delivery have compelled QSRs to adapt their drive-thru operations, often through ad hoc measures that are not sustainable. In the long term, QSR industry growth and expansion plans are starting to envision a future with fewer dine-in options and more efficient to-go offerings which require new infrastructure.”

Dura-Glide DT Supports More Workplace Efficiency

According to STANLEY Access Technologies, Dura-Glide DT allows restaurant staff to easily switch between automatic door and window mode without delay or interruption to customer service. Staff can opt for automatic door mode during times of heightened traffic, when dedicated waiting spots are filled up and the drive-thru queue is getting longer. During lull periods, staff can swap back to the window, a wide, automatic opening that removes any barriers in the drive-thru exchange.

The technology states that its new product utilizes its Dura-Glide 2000/3000 automatic sliding door, which is a solution with over 30 years of proven performance. Based on the input of QSR leaders, Dura-Glide DT was designed to improve throughput with quicker exchanges and reduced wait times.

Key features of this new technology include:

  • Hands-free automation: Hands-free activation allows drive-thru staff to serve customers, even when their hands are full
  • Sturdy seals: Stainless steel and vinyl seals eliminate gaps for food debris and prevent pests from entering
  • Reliable security: Solenoid locks secure panels to prevent unauthorized entry
  • Sleek durability: A clean aesthetic with robust construction to withstand demands of QSR environments

“With a substantial part of any QSR’s revenue coming from the drive-thru, Dura-Glide DT provides QSR brands a dynamic yet easy-to-use hybrid solution to meet customers’ needs while boosting profits,” adds Brian Ha, product manager at STANLEY Access Technologies.

“The window and door sizes can both be customized depending on the location for optimal functionality. This flexibility minimizes friction for QSRs and their customers, encouraging speed of service and accuracy in an industry where every second makes a difference.”
