Maintaining Automatic Doors
While investing in automatic doors involves considerable initial outlay, taking simple steps to maintain your door will ensure that they last the test of time. Even the state of the art automatic doors that we supply will benefit from a regular schedule of maintenance, protecting your investment and ensuring you reap the benefits for years to come.
Get them serviced
It’s simple really, getting your doors serviced regularly means they will last a lot longer. An annual service will ensure your door is working effectively and safely.
Make sure a trained engineer services your door, and don’t be afraid to ask what you’re signing up for. Asking your door company for a list of what will be included in the service will ensure that your door is serviced in accordance with British Standards, and you can have peace of mind that the door is in full, safe working order.
Replace Minor Parts
It’s easier and cheaper to replace small minor parts than to replace a whole door. If a small part of the door is worn out or broken, it is essential to fix it as soon as you can in order to maintain the door’s lifespan.
If you’re purchasing a new door and are wondering how to maintain it, the first thing to do would be to ask the installer if they provide an extended warranty and what the warranty is on individual parts. This will then give you an idea of when you need to start servicing the door to get the best out of it. Ideally an extended warranty will give you peace of mind that if anything goes wrong with the door it can be fixed quickly and effectively, so bear this in mind when you purchase.
