WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON FAULTS IN AUTOMATIC GARAGE DOORS? DO I NEED A MAINTENANCE OR REPAIR OF MY DOOR?
As you will know if you have navigated our website, there are many different types of doors for residential use: here is an overview of all types of automatic garage doors.
The faults that usually suffer automatic garage doors usually depend on a malfunction of one or more of these elements: the springs, the wheels, the cables that go to the dock, the door panels, the hinges (in the case of tilting doors ), the roof motor or the external motor (in case of sliding doors ).
Some faults also depend on the motor plate or the DE configuration of the electrical system. Others are due to the loss of oil in the motors of the swing doors, which implies the substitution of the entire motor.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD MAINTENANCE
As we explained in a post, it is estimated that good maintenance prevents up to 80% of breakdowns of automatic doors.
But in addition, there is another important aspect that must be considered: accidents. The security of a garage door is fundamental and we never get tired of insisting on this point: for that reason, we offer maintenance contracts for the prevention of accidents.
The maintenance of garage doors includes, depending on the type of door:
- Check the status of counterweight cables, pulleys, bearings, etc.
- Review of the infrared photocell, light signals, pneumatic bands, etc.
- Review of hydraulic and electromechanical actuators
- Review of activation systems, radio receivers, key drives, etc.
- Review of electrical protection.
- Grease the mechanical elements.
- Report of the deficiencies observed and actions to be carried out.
