Daily checks on your automatic sliding doors are a must, especially in the winter season, when the weather conditions are at their worst.
Your automatic sliding door should receive a full inspection every year or six months with a service contract. Regular maintenance maximises user safety and makes sure that the equipment meets all relevant standards (BS EN 16005).
We do suggest that you still check your automatic sliding doors on a daily basis.
Here is what to look out for:
First you need to make sure that your sensor is in full working order. To check your sensor, stand four feet away from the automatic entrance and you should see your doors automatically slide open.
If you find that your doors are randomly opening on their own without anyone standing four feet away from the sensor, you may have a merchandise display, plant pot or another object blocking the infrared rays. Check your surrounding area and make sure the sensors are clear.
Doors should open smoothly and not stop without impact.
To test the presence sensor, stand on the threshold for 10-20 seconds.
Door hardware check: Make sure no loose screws are visible and no damage has been made to the glass or door itself.
Keep guides clean and remove any dirt or decomposed leaves that will damage your doors over time.
Check for any trip or hazards.
Check that your BDE (keypad device) is not showing any warning messages or maintenance required.
