Industrial doors are built to last, but to guarantee that they remain in their best condition – routine specialist industrial door servicing and maintenance is vital. Timely industrial door servicing has a great deal of benefits which is why industrial door maintenance companies recommend regular visits to monitor your doors and keep them in top condition.

Not only will timely servicing ensure continual optimum performance, but it can also reduce the cost of unexpected breakages, extend the life of your doors, and keep your premises and people properly safeguarded. Find out more about the benefits of industrial door servicing (and find out why it’s essential) below.

Keep the doors at peak efficiency

Industrial doors are designed with daily operations in mind. If your doors break unexpectedly, this can have serious consequences. You need to be able to rely on your doors so you can focus on the daily operations of your business – and this is why routine servicing is essential. Regardless of whether your premises is in the retail, commercial, industrial, domestic, agricultural, or high security sector, your doors will require specialist industrial door maintenance to keep them opening and closing as quickly and reliably as possible.

Make long term savings

If all the parts of an industrial door are regularly monitored by expert engineers, they will be able to identify the early warning signs of wear and tear that can lead to expensive breakages. Preventative maintenance can therefore safeguard you against potentially costly industrial door repairs. Investing in quality doors and routine industrial door servicing can save you money in the long term.

Extend the industrial door lifespan

The good news is that if you invest in regular industrial door maintenance and protect your doors from unexpected breakages – you can extend the lifespan of your doors. One of the largest contributing factors to industrial doors needing replacing is insufficient maintenance. Of course you cannot always prepare for accidental damage, but you can keep your doors in their best condition – making them best prepared for continual daily use and wear.

Keep your premises (and people) safe

Industrial doors are effective barriers to safeguard your premises, but if they are not kept in optimum condition where all parts are fully functional and any areas of weakness are reinforced, you can leave yourself vulnerable to intrusion. Not only is industrial door servicing essential to protect your premises, keeping the doors in good condition is essential for protecting your staff from injuries. If you manage or own a premises with industrial doors, you have a duty of care to keep your doors properly maintained.

Meet your legal obligations as an employer

To ensure your team of employees are properly safeguarded against injury (or even death), you have a legal duty to service your industrial doors and keep them in safe working order. It’s not widely known that industrial door servicing is a legal obligation for workplace environments. Industrial doors are machines and fall under workplace equipment – they are therefore covered by the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations which place responsibility for safety on the employer’s shoulders. Failing to routinely service your industrial doors can risk harm to your employees and leave you vulnerable to costly litigation.
