Overhead door preventative maintenance
Preventative maintenance is focused on keeping your overhead doors in peak condition at all times, instead of only performing maintenance in response to a needed repair. Among other things, preventative maintenance includes keeping the track surfaces of the overhead door clean and free of obstructions, grease, and oil, making certain bolts and fasteners are correctly tightened, and addressing any damage or wear and tear which has occurred over time. The door surface and hardware should also be checked on a regular basis, to maintain the functionality of the roller assembly, bottom seal, hinge points, and other elements. The counterbalance should also be examined periodically to ensure that the drum, cable, torsion spring, shaft bearings, set screws, and collars are working as intended. Some elements may need periodic lubrication, while others may need tightness adjustments or replacement due to corrosion.
Overhead doors include a number of elements which can be under high spring tension, including bottom fixtures, cables, drums, pulleys, shafts, and brackets and only a trained service person should attempt repairs to these items. Winding, repairs, and spring adjustments must also be completed by trained service professionals. In addition to these repairs and adjustments which can only be completed by trained professionals, it’s also wise to have a professional technician perform regular preventative maintenance because professional technicians have extensive experience in identifying the potential for problems before they have a chance to occur.
The frequency with which a customer schedules service technicians to perform preventative maintenance on their industrial doors or other equipment will vary according to the climate and other conditions under which the door regularly operates. Some preventative maintenance may be required monthly, while other types of maintenance should be undertaken every three to six months.
