Common Automatic Door Maintenance Issues

Here at ABC Industrial, we try to emphasise the importance of maintaining industrial security machinery. After all, mechanical equipment relies on human intervention in order to keep it in tip top shape! In fact, some of the most common industrial door problems can be easily solved with regular servicing and maintenance.


Not only can squeaky doors be problematic, they can also be annoying. The last thing that staff members want to contend with is a high-pitched screech every time they open and close the doors at their place of employment. As a property and business owner, you’ll want to ensure that any squeaky doors are rectified promptly. Thankfully, all it usually takes is a little bit of oil to lubricate the moving parts in order to stop a nasty squeak in its tracks once and for all.


Most roller industrial doors operate on metal tracks, and it is important to ensure that they are correctly aligned. Even a slight misalignment can wreak havoc on day-to-day business operation. It doesn’t take much to knock an industrial door out of alignment and if you don’t amend the problem quickly you could end up with further damage to deal with as the motor works harder in order to continue operation. Realigning the tracks of an industrial door can be carried out swiftly by an experienced engineer.

Delayed Speed

An industrial door can come with either manual operation or automatic operation, the latter of which comes with a motor. When you use your door on a daily basis, it is important to pay attention to the speed. A slow opening and closing time is often a sign that there is something going on within the mechanics that requires the expertise of an experienced engineer. From corrosion to general wear and tear, it is important that you call out an expert in order to diagnose and rectify any speed related issues with your industrial doors. There is nothing worse than delaying the maintenance requirements of your automatic doors. Speed is of essence when you discover a problem that could be potentially problematic. Here at ABC Industrial, our engineers are more than qualified to deal with any industrial maintenance worries and woes you may have; get in contact today to find out more information!
