Automatic Door – Repair or Replacement?

Replacement Mailbox Locks

You already know what a valuable asset automatic door is if your business premises have them. They serve a dual purpose of providing convenient access while ensuring security, regardless of whether you operate from a store, an office or a warehouse.

When they fail, what happens? The nightmare scenario can be divided into two parts. When the doors are closed, there is a complete system failure, which means no one can enter or leave. Manual overrides are the only option in this situation, but they are inconvenient and only provide short-term relief. Second, there is a scenario in which the doors fail in the open position, causing problems with heat loss and security.

Automatic Door - Repair or Replacement

When a fault is developing, you’ll often see warning signs. It is possible for the controls themselves to malfunction or the power supply and connecting cables to cause the problem. There may be a problem with the track occasionally. You should have the doors professionally serviced by commercial locksmith toronto if they are working intermittently in any of these cases.

There are times when your doors will reach the end of their useful life and replacement is both a cheaper and more reliable option even though most problems can be fixed with some repair or new parts. Can either of these solutions be ruled out based on the signs?

Commercial Automatic Door Service Replacement Signs

  • Having been struck by a heavy object or subjected to excessive force, your doors have sustained serious damage. They probably need to be replaced if they have been bent.
  • Rather than being the exception, minor faults are multiplying.
  • It is impossible or difficult to obtain replacement parts.
    As a result of new regulations or safety standards, your doors are no longer compliant.
  • There is a poor public image created by your shabby doors.

The signs that interim repairs will be sufficient

  • There is a delay in opening the doors or they don’t open smoothly until you are almost upon them. Sensors will likely need to be replaced in this case.
  • There is a problem with the doors not opening to their full extent, staying open long enough once opened, or closing too quickly. Their settings may need to be adjusted relatively simply.
  • Both inside and outside doors that open when a visitor steps onto the mat develop a delay. Another sensor problem is most likely to blame.
  • When only partially opened, doors stick. There may be an obstruction outside of the door that is causing this. An engineer from your commercial automatic door service might be able to remove it if it has gotten stuck in the mechanism.
  • There is wear on the mats or cracks in the glass panels. All of these components are replaceable or repairable, so there is no need to install brand new doors.
