The front doors of your commercial building are one of the first things customers notice when they enter your business. As such, it is important that they make a good first impression. If your automated doors aren’t operating like they should, they won’t just be an inconvenience, they’ll also be a safety hazard. By hiring a certified technician to handle their maintenance, you will ensure your doors are functional and safe.
With use, you might find that your automated swing doors move more slowly than usual or even stop opening altogether. This can be a sign that certain parts need to be replaced.
The winter months can take an even greater toll on your automated doors. The salt used to keep ice at bay can cause the bottom pivots on your automated swing doors to corrode. This is a common problem, which makes frequent maintenance a necessity.
Over time, the rolling guides in the tracks of sliding automated doors wear down. The manufacture recommends that you have a AAADM Certified technician come in to repair them annually, so that your doors continue too effortlessly open and close. Be sure to keep the bottom tracks of your sliding doors clear of debris, as it can lead to the door malfunctioning. It is especially important to keep this in mind during the winter months, when salt tends to accumulate in the tracks.
Sensors are what enable automated doors to detect that a person is nearby and then command the door to open to let them through. If they are not working properly, the doors may not open for your customers or, even worse, they may close on people who happen to stop in the doorway. Since sensors are such an important component of your automated doors, you should have them inspected by a qualified technician at least once a year. This AAADM inspection protects you from unnecessary liability issues.
