How to Maintain an Automatic Door

Here at ABC Industrial, we pride ourselves on our versatile product range and its ability to meet the individual needs of each and every client. After all, automation is the markets bestselling feature due to its ability to be implemented into a variety of different applications, including doors. With this said, it is vital that a property owner understands the maintenance responsibilities that come along with automatic door ownership as a lack of attention to detail can lead to devastating repercussions. Read on as we go over everything there is to know about maintaining an automatic door... What are the signs of a damaged automatic door? In order to effectively maintain an automatic door, it is important that property owners are able to recognise when the system may be in need of an inspection from an engineer. After all, most malfunctions begin with subtle symptoms that are easy to recognise when the property owner knows what to look out for. For example, an automatic door that is making unusual noises or operates at a slower than normal speed should be considered a cause for concern and be inspected sooner rather than later. How often should an automatic door be inspected? The health of an automatic door depends on the reaction speed of the property owner once a fault is discovered. After all, a problem tends to become much more serious when it is allowed to fester for some time. In fact, this can also make a repair job more expensive to carry out too. Luckily, routinely inspecting the mechanics on a monthly basis can help ensure that any malfunctions are found and repaired promptly. Why is a professional engineer important? An automatic door may seem like a simple piece of technology but the mechanics inside are rather complex which means it is vital that any DIY attempts are reserved for the garden. After all, an automatic door engineer is highly trained to deal with a variety of faults in order to fix them in the most cost-effective and safest way possible and any property owners attempting to save money by carrying out a repair themselves can actually put themselves in danger. There are many benefits that can be gained from attention to detail and routine inspections. After all, the longevity of automatic doors and similar automated products rely on the expertise of a qualified engineer in order to ensure that the system is in tip top condition all year round. Here at ABC Industrial, we have over 20 years' experience in the automatic door industry and our Planned Preventative Maintenance Contracts are a fail-proof automation solution for even the busiest property owners.
