Safety and Security

Increase Safety and Security

When your commercial garage door and operator functions properly, you will have optimum security and safety. Professional installation is essential, but you also should perform regular maintenance and inspections.

Normal wear and tear can occur, and the potential for breakage is accelerated when your commercial garage door is used multiple times throughout the day. Inspections should be a regular part of your daily safety routine.

To prevent personal injury and property damage, check cables to make sure they are not frayed, have worn strips hanging loose, or show other signs of breakage. Check springs to make sure they are not rusted, damaged, or broken. Schedule to replace parts as needed, being careful as cables and springs are under tension and can cause serious injury. You also want to check rollers, hinges, and other safety equipment to verify these are working properly.

Refer to your owner’s manual for more specific precautions for inspecting your commercial garage door, operator, and other entry systems and equipment. Doors By Mike provides regular scheduled maintenance to optimize the products’ reliability and function.
