5 Reasons to Regularly Service Automatic Doors with Elite Security


Your automatic doors do more than allow foot traffic to flow in and out of your building. They also secure your facility and protect your business from theft, vandalism or other nefarious activities. Particularly important in busy cities and bustling towns, where criminals view your business as a potential target, high-security automatic doors are a valuable deterrent.

It is not enough to simply install automatic doors. Over time, wear and tear can reduce the efficiency of your security measures, and increase the likelihood of a successful attack. With each new and more sophisticated approach, your automatic doors must be up to the challenge of modern criminals. To do so, Elite Security recommends regular servicing and planned preventative maintenance.

Our top five reasons why regular automatic door servicing is so important.

1. Reduces Service Repair Costs

Ongoing servicing and minor repairs are often more cost-effective than major restorations when disaster strikes. The impact of automatic door failure can bring your business to a grinding halt, and prevent your employees from carrying out their daily tasks. Though planned preventative maintenance requires an upfront investment, the financial benefits of servicing your security systems are invaluable.

2. Maintain High-Quality Protection

For your automatic doors to operate at the highest standard, they must be regularly serviced. As with many other facets of your building or facility, regular usage, weather and degradation can reduce the reliability of your security measures. We recommend servicing your automatic doors every six months to maintain the standard of protection your business requires.

3. Meet Health & Safety Standards

Automatic doors are held to strict health and safety standards. As outlined by PUWER, equipment must be “maintained in a safe condition and inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and does not subsequently deteriorate”. Regular servicing by experienced professionals, like Elite Security, ensures that your business meets all of the required health and safety measures for your protective devices and controls. Planned preventative maintenance keeps your business secure and your employees safe.

There is also a legal requirement to upkeep your automatic doors. In the UK, several policies and regulations set the standard for your security measures, and protect your employees in case of fire or similar emergency. It is your responsibility as a business owner to maintain the quality of your facility, protect your employees and deter criminal behaviour.

4. Upgrade & Improve Where Necessary

With regular servicing, Elite Security will identify if and when your automatic doors need to be upgraded. This can reduce long-term costs, as it prevents the need for large-scale repairs, and also take advantage of the latest technological advancements. Our servicing professionals stay up-to-date with the security industry, to take advantage of innovative technologies and protect our clients from evolving security attacks.

5. Complete Peace of Mind

Regular servicing for your automatic doors will give you peace of mind. As a business owner, the last thing you want to waste precious time and energy worrying about is your building’s security. With planned preventative maintenance, you do not have to. Automatic doors protect your business from harm, so investing in the quality of your security measures means also investing in the longevity of your business.
