There are plenty of good reasons as to why a business should ensure that their roller shutter doors are maintained correctly. Not only does it help to ensure the door works to its full potential at all times, but it can also help to reduce the risk of accidental damage to an employee or a visitor to the premises.
Once a brand new roller shutter door has been installed, many companies may overlook the need to book the door in for future maintenance checks, but if a door is in constant use or if it is damaged in anyway, this can cause a potential hazard.
Here are some great reasons for carrying out regular roller shutter door maintenance:
- It’s a legal requirement – businesses need to ensure that their equipment is in safe working order all times to protect the safety of the employees as well as any visitors to the site.
- Maintaining the door helps to prolong the operational life of the door, and can reduce the likelihood for the door to be replaced sooner than necessary.
- Prevents potential downtime – the last thing a business needs is for time to be wasted if work cannot continue until a broken door has been fixed. Regular industrial door servicing can help to identify any potential problems before they escalate into much larger issues.
- Reduces the need for expensive emergency call outs – it’s far cheaper to book a routine service check-up than it is to call out an emergency engineer once a problem has already been caused!
Of course, there are times when a door has been damaged accidently and an engineer will need to be called out, sometimes this is unavoidable. However, most problems can be picked up during a routine maintenance check in order to avoid this time consuming and often costly procedure.
It may seem like another task which needs to be organised, but setting up a regular service and maintenance contract for industrial doors couldn’t be easier. Most servicing plans can be set up to suit a business’s budget and a detailed service wallet can be kept for each relevant door within the company premises.
