To keep these stationary hardware parts in good shape, we first check them closely for rust, bending and misalignment. We make sure that these problems are handled right away. Our advice to homeowners is to avoid using corrosive cleaners for their driveway to prevent the damage of the tracks’ protective coating which would leave them exposed to rust. In case you’ve used heavy lubricants before, these components will need cleaning too.
These components are essential for the safety of the automatic door and we start by testing them. One of our tests involves waving a long thin object in front of them while the door is going down. If the unit doesn’t reverse its course, this indicates a problem. Often, cleaning and aligning the devices will be the only solution required. If they have failed, however, we’ll replace them with new ones.
