How to keep your Automatic Doors in Top Condition

Posted on by Downham Door Services

It’s pretty fair to assume that if you have automatic doors, they’re used at least frequently and probably almost continuously. Whilst this is the sign of a healthy and successful business, it does mean that your doors are likely to experience wear and tear, as well as other accidental damage.  Here at Downham Door Services, we understand that the requirements for your automatic doors are unique, and we take a tailored approach to your automatic doors and helping you to keep them in top condition.

Common problems your automatic doors may encounter

As well as wear and tear from sustained use, there are a number of other common problems your automatic doors will face over time. Some of these common problems include electrical malfunctions, or misaligned tracks, which all indicate your automatic doors are faulty and need repairing.

Constant use can also lead to your automatic doors needing maintenance and repairs, especially if they encounter manhandling or other factors such as being exposed to bad weather. Some of these common problems can be prevented by ensuring your doors receive regular servicing, but others may need to be fixed by the professionals.

In order to help keep your automatic doors in top condition and help the door operation run smoothly, you should enlist qualified specialists to oversee your doors’ long running maintenance and servicing.

Organising regular maintenance visits is the cheapest and easiest way to keep your automatic doors in great condition, as well as legal compliance, ensuring you meet your commercial insurance requirements as well. Downham Door Services know how busy business owners are, which is why we offer regularly scheduled servicing and maintenance contracts.

Does Your Industrial Door Have The CE Mark?

Posted on by Downham Door Services

As of 2013 it has become a mandatory legal requirement for industrial doors to be marked with the CE symbol in order to adhere to EU standards of safety. The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) is responsible for setting the standards of health and safety when it comes to doors, gates, locks, and architectural hardware throughout the EU, and they have granted Downham Door Services the right to mark our goods with the CE.

What Is The Significance Of The CE Mark?

There is a need to ensure all goods travelling through the EU meet the same requirements of safety and reliability. While the CE mark is not a quality guarantee, it does ensure that certain critical aspects such as fire safety are performance guaranteed.

Products marked with the CE symbol do not pose unacceptable risks when it comes to accidents or damage while in operation. Doors are safeguarded against hazardous malfunctions thanks to innovative features such as anti-drop devices, accurate wind and enhanced resistance ratings, brake or balance systems, additional springs, and more.

Declaration Of Compliance

By branding a product with the CE mark the manufacture is declaring that they conform with all of the legal requirements of the EU, so the consumer can be sure that wherever their product comes from it complies with safety standards. This is a significant step in increasing safety standards on products manufactured both in and out of the UK, and at Downham Door Services we are proud to say we conform.
