Having your industrial door serviced on a regular basis is an important part of running your business smoothly as well as keeping your premises, employees and belongings safe and secure. Taking the necessary actions to ensure your doors are working properly should therefore not be taken lightly. Here are three things to bear in mind when it comes to servicing and looking after your industrial doors.
Don’t wait until your door breaks down
When it comes to servicing industrial doors, many business owners tend to overlook this step until a door eventually ceases from functioning as it should. As a result of that, repairing an industrial door rather turns into an unforeseen and costly process which could have easily been avoided. Besides that, a faulty or non-functioning door also causes many disruptions and most importantly affects the usual flow of business. Making sure you regularly service your industrial doors will keep your doors in tip-top condition and minimise the need for expensive last-minute repairs or replacement.
Frequently examine your doors
Make it a priority to conduct monthly examinations, checking your doors for any faults or defects. Identifying issues before they become a rather large problem can again avoid expensive repairs. For example, frequently check how your doors open and close and consider whether your doors make any uncommon noises such as banging or squeaking. As soon as you notice anything out of the ordinary, it is important to have experienced professionals in industrial door repairs have a look at the problem.
Plan and schedule regular checks and servicing
Whether you have roller shutter doors, high-speed doors, industrial sliding doors or any other industrial doors, it is important to make sure you get regular checks in place. Regular servicing ensures any hidden issues are identified. Also, any signs of wear and tear can be spotted early on as well. In line with the Machinery Directive and HSE regulations, you should have your electrically operated doors serviced at least once every 12 months. This will help limit the amount of downtime you experience from either jammed or broken industrial doors.
