The Importance of Repairs and Maintenance

The Importance of Repairs and Maintenance

Just like all mechanisms, roller doors should also be subjected to regular maintenance and services. If you start to notice any issues with your roller door, then it is a good idea to hire somebody to come and service your door for many reasons, whether it is on a residential or commercial property. Safety is one of the biggest reasons that it is important that your roller door is functioning properly. If the door was to get stuck or suddenly come crashing down, it could lead to an injury. With many doors weighing at least sixty kilograms, if somebody was to get crushed under the door then the consequences could be very serious and even fatal. It is also a security risk to have a roller door that is not functioning properly. An intruder can easily enter through a broken door, leaving your belongings and even you and your family at risk. Another reason to keep on top of your roller door repairs is that catching any issues early could avoid the issue of having more serious problems down the track. Leaving an issue to get worst can cost you more money and be an even bigger issue in the long run, so it is worth getting it assessed as soon as possible. This is especially important when it comes to your manufacturer’s warranty as well. Leaving problems too long to manifest could mean that your warranty may have expired by the time you get it fixed or lead to issues that are outside the warranty.

Roller Door Repairs Adelaide: The Checklist

Not sure where to begin when it comes to looking after your roller doors? There are many things you can do to ensure the longevity of your roller doors, that way you can avoid having to pay for roller door repairs. If you have roller doors, check on the guide tracks and clean and polish them using a cloth and methylated spirits or turps, to ensure that it is easy for the Nyofelt to run through. The internal guide tracks on Sectional doors don’t require the same polish but they should be cleaned. On the hinges, lubricate them with an all-purpose machine oil, along with the axel bearings to make sure they are operating smoothly. If they are plastic hinges, then use silicon spray on them instead. Springs just need to be wiped over with an oily rag, and if you find the lock is starting to become stiff, then just a simple spray of WD40 will be sufficient. Now this is where you have to check properly. Check your lifting cables to ensure there is no fraying, and if you do notice any signs, contact a specialist in roller door repairs in Adelaide like Metro Roller Doors to come and take a look as soon as possible. If any fasteners or springs seem damaged or having issues, then that is another reason to call a technician too.
