Why Automatic Doors Need Regular Maintenance

As a business owner or property manager, you likely have a long to-do list based on what needs to be done first. While automatic door maintenance may not seem like it should take precedence, routine service to your doors and other areas of your property can prevent accidents and the need for more expensive repairs or replacement down the line.

Move automatic door maintenance to the top of your to-do list and turn to The Flying Locksmiths for help! We recommend scheduling routine maintenance, but you can also call us after completing a visual check on your own. Take a look at a few of the things we recommend assessing:

  • Door Sensors – Make sure your door sensors are opening (and closing) your doors as usual. Problems with the former can prevent people from entering your building, and issues with the latter can cause an injury.
  • Signage & Safety – Check that all of your required safety signage is on display and that any mats are secure to prevent slipping.
  • Door Panels – When they open, the doors should be able to clear any floor mats and shouldn’t come close to any merchandise or furniture in your building.
  • Adjust with the Weather – Rain, snow, wind and other weather can cause dangerous situations. Keep the weather in mind and make sure the area is free of debris, your doors aren’t broken and your mats are clean.

Once you’ve invested in high-quality automatic doors, it makes sense to keep up with routine maintenance. Whether you’ve completed an assessment and found an issue or you see the sense in preventive maintenance, The Flying Locksmiths can make sure your automatic doors are fully functional and ready to welcome customers, clients, tenants or patients.
