The importance of industrial door maintenance

Do you have industrial doors fitted at your business premises?  Did you know that it’s your responsibility to keep them maintained, even if you don’t own the building itself?

Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) classes all types of industrial doors as machinery and, as such, they should be included in your regular inspection and maintenance schedule. Of course, the frequency of the inspection will be determined by how much they are actually used, but it should at least be an annual occurrence, and to ensure that you comply with the regulations, the maintenance of your industrial doors should only ever be undertaken by competent and trained personnel.

Here at C & S Industrial Doors Ltd, we consider ourselves to be one of the most reliable suppliers of industrial doors Hull has available, and we’re experts in installing, repairing, servicing and maintaining all kinds of industrial doors. As a professional industrial door company, we always keep records of the doors we install and maintain, together with details of which access method is necessary to reach the mechanism of the doors, for example, whether a ladder, scaffolding or lift is required, to ensure that we’ll be able to access the mechanism with the minimum of fuss, and the minimum of down time to your doors.

It’s important to remember that poorly maintained doors have the potential to cause serious injury or even death, and if you don’t have up to date evidence to prove that you have a regular schedule of inspections and maintenance in place, you could be looking at a fine, or even a prison sentence, should you fall foul of the regulations.
