3 Reasons to Take Out a Maintenance Contract

With over 23 years' experience in the industrial industry, it is safe to say that the team here at ABC Industrial are equipped with the skills necessary to provide our clients with a high-quality product that offers both security and style. With this said, mechanical installations like roller shutters, automatic doors and fire doors require regular upkeep from a licenced engineer in order to ensure that they remain in tip top condition for the foreseeable future. Read on as we go over three reasons why every industrial property owner should take out a maintenance contract...

Why is a recorded repair history necessary?

When a service is carried out, it is not uncommon for the engineer to refer back to previous inspections and repair work in order to understand the health of the shutter or door in question. Luckily, a maintenance contract ensures that all of this information is recorded accurately and readily available in order to allow the experts to provide the best care possible. After all, it can be difficult to assess the severity of damage when there isn’t a record of its development to confer with.

Can regular maintenance reduce emergency repairs?

When industrial property owners invest in a maintenance contract, they can rely on the expertise of experienced engineers to keep their shutters in tip top condition all year round. After all, it is much easier and more cost-effective to carry out repair work when the damage is found sooner rather than later. As a result, industrial equipment is less likely to breakdown and require emergency engineering because most issues are found and resolved during routine inspections.

Does a maintenance contract make a working environment safer?

When an accident takes place in an industrial workplace, an investigation into the safety of the equipment involved in the incident is often carried out. This means that industrial equipment that does not have a maintenance contract and isn't inspected annually can leave a property owner at risk of legal action as they are lawfully obligated to provide routine servicing to industrial components. After all, well-maintained equipment is less likely to malfunction and actually improves the safety of a working environment. The importance of routine servicing cannot be emphasised enough and that is why the team here at ABC Industrial encourage all of our clients to invest in their maintenance by contractually organising the inspections of their mechanical installations. After all, a planned preventative maintenance contract works by carrying out regular site inspections in order to ensure that the components are in full working order at all times.
