Automatic doors are popular and effective additions to any building. Typically chosen for use in business or office buildings, automatic doors have proven to be one of the best options for managing foot traffic, by enabling the ease of accessibility and when paired with an access control system, ensuring a building remains secure from unwanted trespassers. To ensure they remain secure, however, automatic doors require maintenance performed by professionals. Allow us to help you understand the importance of hiring AAADM-certified inspectors.
What Is AAADM Certification?
The American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers (AAADM) provides certifications for technicians to perform inspections, install, repair and maintain automatic door operators.
Without this certification, it’s extremely dangerous to touch an automatic door—not to mention highly illegal. The reason for this is due to the sensitivity of the devices. Mishandling an automatic door’s programming can result in seriously injuring customers or employees.
There are two kinds of AAADM certifications: The Certified Inspector Training Program and the Revolving Door Inspector Certification Program. It’s best to look for technicians with one or both of these certifications in order to ensure you’re getting a proper inspection, a quality installation or expert repairs on your building’s automatic doors.
Benefits of AAADM-Certified Technicians
Automatic doors require very precise maintenance because the margin for error is so small. Faulty doors are major hazards for injuries and become massive flaws in your business’s security, as intruders can easily break in through the faulty doors. AAADM-certified inspectors will ensure your automatic doors have been installed or repaired properly, and they have a support network readily available should they need further help making your business safe and secure.
