If you’re wondering how to maintain your automatic sliding doors , you’ll be pleased to learn that the process is relatively straightforward and simple. Here are a few important items to cross off your maintenance checklist.
Check for any damage or missing parts, such as rollers and springs. If they’re damaged, it’s time to replace them. Keep in mind that many sliding door systems will come with a manufacturer’s warranty that covers these kinds of problems. If your equipment is worn out or broken, contact customer service for a replacement or repair services.
Check the tracks regularly. Remove the door and check the tracks, ball screws, bearings and wheels. Follow a routine schedule to check them frequently.
Make sure that track flanges are properly lubricated with lubricant on a regular basis. Also inspect the screws on rails and wheel hubs for corrosion and wear.
Use your finger to determine if rollers are turning smoothly on their tracks. Tighten any loose screws or those that are not securely fastened, which can cause the roller to stop rotating completely.
Install a child safety lock. Make sure your sliding doors are safe for children with a child safety lock that stops the door from closing all the way. Some locks are sold as an accessory, or you can install your own homemade one.
Your doors should have some type of safety mechanism to keep them from closing too quickly and injuring someone who walks behind them habitually. Automatic Sliding Doors that close slowly can also be modified to prevent injuries. Canuck Door Systems installs DITEC ENTREMATIC and TORMAX Automatic Glass Aluminum Doors.
