Why Maintain Your Overhead Doors

Many organizations don’t think about their door systems, but there are good reasons to do so ..

 

Overhead doors are designed to need routine maintenance. Without it, they become prone to failure

Commercial doors are made with small, inexpensive components that wear, and need checking and replacement during a door system’s normal lifecycle. Finding and  fixing small problems, like frayed cables or worn rollers, before they become big problems, like a door that falls, is money well-spent.
 

To comply with safety law

Although often overlooked, there are workplace safety requirements for commercial doors, and improperly maintained or configured doors create increased safety compliance and liability exposure. Your overhead doors should always be included in your Safety Program.

Ontario OHS Standards
All Ontario employers have a legal responsibility for safety in their workplace. For overhead door systems, that responsibility is defined in Part III 25(1)(b) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act which requires equipment to be maintained in good condition, and Part III 25 (2)(h) which requires employers take every precaution reasonable to protect workers.

Why Maintain Your Loading Docks

There are two main reasons to have your dock equipment regularly and properly maintained:

 

Improve up-time, reduce maintenance costs, extend equipment life

Dock systems are made with components that need inspecting, cleaning, lubrication, adjustment, and possibly replacement during the equipment’s normal lifecycle. They can also operate in harsh environments where they are susceptible to damage from transport vehicles and materials handling equipment. Finding and fixing small problems before they become big problems is money well-spent.
