An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…..we probably all heard our parents mutter those words to us as we were young and easily influenced, at this point, we didn’t really give it a second thought. That saying certainly holds true when it comes to your overhead doors. They’re one of those items that many people never really give a second thought to, until they become inoperable and you have a dock position out of service. These things seem to have a way of happening at the most inopportune moment possible and can turn something that could have been a very simple fix into a major inconvenience costing both time and money.
A simple maintenance program that could work in conjunction with your other loading dock equipment (dock leveler, vehicle restraints, door operator, fire doors, high speed doors, etc etc) can help you stay out in front of surprise emergencies….we could all use less of those.
If you have any of the following conditions it might be money well spent to get your doors looked at by a professional technician and help reduce your exposure to potential breakdowns and safety issues.
If you would like to have us take a look at your overhead doors or any of your other loading dock equipment and have a conversation about their condition and how we can help reduce maintenance costs give us a call here at Dock & Door Tec.
