Are Your Commercial Roller Doors Safe?

In the workplace, safety should never be overlooked which is why many companies, factories and warehouses must undergo regular safety checks and assessments. From standard safety procedures and drills, to industry specialist inspections, these will often be thorough and designed to combat every possibility.

Here at Downham Door Services, we supply, install and service a complete range of automated roller doors to meet the demands of a commercial working environment. Commercial Roller Doors and Automatic Doors play an essential role in creating a functional and productive working environment proving invaluable assets across a range of industries.

Safety In The Workplace

Adding increased protection, stylish design and quick entry/exit, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) composed a number of guidelines and safety requirements to ensure that industrial, commercial and roller shutter doors pose no health and safety risks to employees and visitors.

These Legislations includes:

Regulation 18 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
– In summary, this highlights the need for effective maintenance checks and repairs as well as compliance with correct installation and training

Regulation 5 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
– Emphasises the need for regular cleaning and maintenance procedures, especially of electrical and automated devices to ensure the roller doors are mechanically sound.

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
– This covers the fire safety aspects of your commercial roller doors, ensuring that systems can be relied upon to not hinder fire escape routes and will not pose a fire hazard.

BS EN 12635:2002 – Industrial, Commercial and Garage Doors and Gates – Installation and Use
– Features supporting standards and documentation with guidance on installation, labelling, handover, operation, use maintenance and repair.
