Taking Care Of Your Automatic Doors

Taking care of your automatic door and getting it checked, will ensure it lasts for years. It also means that health and safety is kept up to date, something which is important for workers and insurance.

 

Having a professional check your door is important, as they will do a thorough job and you can be sure that the door is working safely. Once a year is generally fine, but if you have a door that’s used often, then six months may be recommended.

 

Occasionally parts will need replacing to extend the lifespan. These doors are complex so they need to be handled carefully, as a bad DIY fix can set you back if it goes wrong!

 

It is unusual for an automatic door to suddenly stop working, unless there is vandalism or an accident. Usually there are warning signs that it is slowly breaking down. Symptoms of damage need to be looked at quickly by a professional before they turn into a bad issue.

 

You need to ensure they are opening and closing efficiently with nothing obstructing them, as this can damage them. Sometimes you can tell just by looking at them that there is a problem and as long as you act fast, it will be easier to replace a part rather than the door itself.

THIEVES TARGETING SHEDS AND GARAGES

Peterborough Police received reports of four garage and shed thefts in one night this month, the majority stealing power tools and bicycles.

 

The Police are urging residents to ensure the security of garages and sheds is sufficient. Leaving valuable property in garages with no locks, or security that is so run-down that it is no tough feat for a thief. If you suspect your current security measures won’t stand up to a thief, try not to leave lawnmowers and bicycles unattended in those places.

 

To ensure the security of your possessions, contact the security specialists at GEM Automatic Doors.
