The Best Tips & Tricks for Maintaining a Rolling Steel Door

It's no secret that Commercial and Industrial Doors are costly to maintain, just think about how many dock doors can be in a single distribution facility. It can get quite timely and expensive for staff to routinely inspect, check, and maintain each one of these doors on a consistent basis. We've recognized this high labor expense, and have designed a virtually maintenance free Rolling Steel Door to alleviate that cost.

 

We all know that commercial and industrial environments are prone to debris, wear, and tear that can effect the operational performance of your Rolling Steel Doors. With fewer parts that are protected and stored out of harms way, Rolling Steel Doors are less prone to the damaging elements of these harsh environments.

 

While you have a low maintenance door when you partner with Asta, we do have few tips and tricks to suggest in order for you to get the longest lifetime value out of your Rolling Steel Doors. We recommend these tips for sustaining easy maintenance on your Rolling Steel Doors:

 

600 Series Interior Dock Door

  • Clean the guide wear strips and the bottom bar astragal by wiping each with a soft cloth. You can use a silicone-based restorative protectant solution on the cloth before touching these surfaces.
  • Use warm water and a mild detergent to clean the Rolling Steel Door curtain. A liquid car washing soap is ideal. 
  • Don't prolong maintenance and repairs when they're needed. Putting off maintenance is a safety issue and could lead to greater problems with your door.

 

 

The primary solution for avoiding malfunctions with your Rolling Steel Door is to have them installed and maintained properly by a certified installer. When your doors are installed by an expert, you can avoid small mistakes that could result in larger future problems with your door's operation.
