Many businesses utilise commercial shutter doors. The most common organisations to include them are warehouses, distribution centres and large storage units. Naturally, over time there will be the occasional maintenance visit. This article discusses what you can do to learn how to fix roll up doors for your workplace.
Identify the Errors
Now first things, first. There is no point in trying to fix an issue if you have no idea what the cause of the problem is. Our spraying technicians and roller door repair experts recommend spending a good amount of time, usually no more than an hour diagnosing the cause of the problem.
However, if after that time you have still not identified the cause, do not begin any repair works until you are 100% satisfied that you know what the cause is. The last thing you want to do is start a repair for a fault that isn’t even present.
Research the Industry and Manufacturer
If you have still been unable to identify a cause of any faults, your second port of call would be to contact the manufacturer or look through any troubleshooting guides that are available. This is a great way to familiarise yourself with any common faults and see what you can do to prevent them.
Joining industry blogs and forums is a great way to discuss common errors with other business users.
Identify Sources for Parts
You have spent a considerable amount of time troubleshooting and you have finally found the fault. However, there was a corroded spring that must be replaced before the roll up door can be used again. Please, please, please do not just go with the cheapest parts you can find online. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is only too true here.
Make sure you give yourself enough time to locate a reliable part supplier. There are hundreds available online and it will only be too easy to get caught out by a cheap part from a company that no-one has heard of.
