The Benefits of Industrial Door Maintenance
Posted on 10th September 2018 at 14:13
No matter what kind of enterprise you run, if you have industrial doors installed at your business premises, keeping them properly maintained could be crucial to your business operation for a number of reasons. As well as being your legal obligation to ensure they meet safety regulations at all times, ensuring that your doors undergo regular maintenance checks and repairs can also help to increase their lifespan, reduce operation costs and keep them looking as appealing as possible for as long as possible. Read on to discover more about how these benefits on industrial door maintenance could enhance your business:
Prolong their Lifespan
As with any functional product, maintaining industrial doors can help to prolong their lifespan and ensure they continue to perform efficiently over an extended period. In line with the Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), industrial doors are technically classed as machinery; as such, they should undergo regular inspections to make sure that they are working as proficiently as possible and meet the required safety regulations. However, it is essential these checks are only ever carried out by trained professionals such as our qualified NVQ engineers here at Zenith Doors.
Reduce Operation Costs
While at first glance, your doors may look as though they are in perfect working condition, a failure to check them regularly could result in minor damages or problems being left unidentified. Consequently, this could lead the doors to deteriorate and eventually, break altogether, costing you more in the long-term as not only will you have to replace them, but you may also have to halt business operations to do so, which is likely to have an adverse impact on revenue. Regular maintenance checks, however, will ensure that these seemingly small issues can be identified and dealt with immediately before they develop into more significant problems.
Comply with Safety Regulations
It is crucial to ensure that your doors comply with legal safety regulations at all times as if they are poorly maintained, they could cause your staff or customers serious injury or worse, death. If you do not have physical evidence to prove that door maintenance inspections are carried out regularly, you could be fined or even run the risk of facing a prison sentence. As such, signing up to one of our DHF approved door maintenance contracts, which can include service intervals depending on how much your doors are used, will ensure that your doors never fail to comply with safety standards, meaning you can rest easy knowing they will always be in top working order.
Finally, while functionality tends to outweigh appearance when it comes to industrial doors, a maintenance schedule will help to make sure your doors look as appealing as possible at all times, giving a great first impression of your business and serving to attract new customers. Whether it’s fixing an automatic operation system or replacing a rusty handle, treating your doors to a professional repair and maintenance service will ensure they maintain their appearance for as long as possible while continuing to function effectively.
