Your business’ overhead doors play an important role in your daily operations, which is why it’s so important that they stay up and running. To avoid mishaps, production delays, and employee downtime, here are a few tips for keeping your overhead doors in great shape:
- Perform a visual inspection–Every so often, do a visual inspection of your overhead doors. Look for any signs of damage, such as loose bolts and screws, bent hinges, or fraying cables. Open and close each door and watch from both the inside and the outside. If anything appears to be wrong, alert us right away.
- Lubricate all moving parts — Just like your vehicle needs oil to keep the engine running, your overhead doors need lubrication to maintain effective operation. Proper lubrication prevents friction, as well as unnecessary wear on the springs, hinges, and other moving parts of your doors. Be cautious as you move forward with the lubrication process that you do not over-lubricate and get liquid on other surfaces.
- Play it safe--Improper operation of your overhead doors can lead to preventable problems. Make sure your employees are aware of how to properly operate your overhead door system and warn them about risky actions that could harm the doors, as well as their safety.
