The Benefits of Planned Preventative Maintenance

When it comes to the longevity of industrial security solutions like roller shutters and steel doors, it is important that maintenance is treated like the priority that it is. After all, these man-made pieces of equipment rely on the human intervention that is implemented during routine inspections in order to source and repair any areas of concern as soon as possible. This means that neglecting maintenance duties can have a variety of avoidable consequences. Read on as the team here at ABC Industrial go over some of the benefits of investing in planned preventative maintenance...

Can maintenance extend the life of industrial shutters?

The intention of regular maintenance is to locate and repair any areas of concern before they get worse. After all, repairs to minor damage is much easier to carry out and ensures that industrial equipment does not deteriorate in quality. In fact, it is not uncommon for mechanical equipment to need replacing before its time due to irreparable damage caused by a lack of attention to detail, the kind that is provided with planned preventative maintenance.

Is planned maintenance more cost effective?

In most circumstances, planned preventative maintenance is carried out with the implementation of routine inspections and prompt repairs for a set fee. In fact, the property owner often has to cover the cost of the repair work too. Whilst this may seem expensive, it is very uncommon for a serious problem to ever be discovered because the routine inspections ensure that any areas of concern are tackled sooner rather than later. This is a much more cost-effective maintenance approach as severe damage is often discovered unexpectedly which means that business owners have to shell out for large scale emergency repairs.

Why are professional engineers a safer option?

When a maintenance contract is drawn up with a licenced engineering and repair company, there is a guarantee that professional workers will be carrying out the servicing, inspections and repair work. This is a much more effective approach to industrial maintenance because these engineers have the skills and experience to get the job done to the highest standard possible whereas outsourced or third-party companies that are only contacted in the event of an emergency can be under-qualified. Here at ABC Industrial, we believe that roller shutters and other industrial security solutions should be inspected on a regular basis in order to ensure that the investment is well protected. After all, damage and deterioration can take place subtly until it becomes very difficult to ignore. Luckily, we offer our clients the opportunity to take out a planned preventative maintenance contract with our engineers which provides routine servicing with the aim to repair damage sooner rather than later.
