Automatic Door Operators

Just wondering how others here model and schedule automatic sliding and swing door operators.

I am working on a hospital building with in excess of 1800 door sets and am trying to have as much as reasonable within the model to prevent coordination issues.

Do you add as an object? If so how do you schedule/ identify door it belongs to?

Do you include the operator within the door? If so what door (s) are you using?


any ideas?

I wonder if you could create a Custom Handle that looks like a Door Opener ?
