Industrial Door Servicing

Why Industrial Door Servicing can keep a business running. Industrial Door Servicing is becoming and essential requirement to many warehouse, factory and business unit owners. They are using their warehouses far more frequently now that lockdown restrictions are lifting and are finding that industrial doors and shutters that have been jammed, damaged or vandalised. Many warehouse owners realise that a jammed or un-useable door can cause a major impact on the smooth operation of their businesses. It's a fake economy just to ignore the situation and to "make do"! Combined to the problems caused by lack of or infrequent use over several months, damage resulting from high winds, heavy rains and wildly fluctuating temperatures can also affect the smooth operation of large warehouse shutters, and folding, rolling, sliding doors.

These industrial shutters and doors can often be rendered unusable due to being jammed or fixed open due to lack of or infrequent use, allowing the elements access and subsequent damage from either storms or individuals, resulting in either spoilt or stolen goods and equipment.

On top of the pressures already on businesses during these challenging times in 2021, the bottom line impact this can have on many businesses may be substantial. Blocked access points can prevent movement of staff, customers and goods. Whilst access points that are locked open can expose goods and equipment to the elements and present a security threat with goods being lost or stolen.

With summer already with us, and the demands of customers already reaching fever pitch, it's essential that the industrial doors that give security, access and weather protection to your business premises are operating well. Without them you may have to shut down for short or even long periods whilst they are repaired.

Whatever type of industrial door your Warehouse have (possibly Roller Shutters, Sliding Folding Doors, Up and Over Doors etc), if they are in a poor state of repair and do not fully operate correctly (shutting and closing or meshing) they are a potential threat to the operation of your business, even during the summer months. When the autumn and winter storms arrive things can potentially only get worse. Any breakdown can result in a negative impact on your business. Therefore, it's important to prioritize your Industrial Door Servicing program to protect your business operation.

If you have damaged doors or your Industrial Doors haven't been serviced recently then acting now could save your business significant downtime and cost.

Here are just some of the reasons that this maintenance work is essential:

Insulation and Environment Control

If your warehouse shutter doors need repair due to being damaged in any way, either jammed open or not fully closing to create that insulating seal, it probably means that heat is escaping. This effectively means that you will be spending more money on energy to make up the short fall in order to keep your premises at an appropriate temperature. You may not be able to get the premises to a suitable temperature, making working conditions less than adequate for your staff members and the resulting loss of productivity that goes with it. 

Building Security

Building Security is one of the key benefits of Warehouse Shutter Doors. If your Industrial doors not fully functional then your premises are not going to be fully secure. This will expose your business to criminal access, threatening your goods, equipment, even your entire business.

Business Availability, Un-necessary Downtime and Customer Inconvenience

Poorly maintained Warehouse Shutter Doors, can easily result in a situation where-by your entire business ceases to function. Doors jammed closed can result in the the inability to move stock, whilst doors jammed open threaten the security, environment and safety of the products and staff under your care. This could spell the end of many businesses if they are dependant on the high trade volumes at Christmas.

Protect Your Merchandise and Business Assets

If your industrial warehouse or factory doors are damaged, it could mean that merchandise and other business assets on your property are not being protected from the weather; in addition to the cost involved in poorly insulated buildings, it could also put any temperature-sensitive stock (such as food or industrial manufactured products) at risk.

Keep Your Staff Busy and Happy

If the doors to your business unit or warehouse a jammed open and it's windy and snowing outside, you can guarantee that you will have a disgruntled workforce who are constantly complaining that "if only the boss had listened to advice and got the doors, that jammed twice in the last month, maintained, we wouldn't be freezing cold....".

Prevention is Better Than Cure

It is easier to conduct regular, planned maintenance of your Industrial Doors than to fix them when they break. It will almost certainly be cheaper and less inconvenient for you and your customers too.
