Full Preventative Maintenance Service Details On Roller Shutter Doors

 

We take pleasure in providing you with the details of a full preventative Maintenance Service regarding Industrial Roller Shutter and Vertical Doors.

ï‚· INSTALLATION. The tension of all roll bolt’s that secure the anchor plates of the barrel and the guides are checked as well as welding joints where applicable. Where necessary, welding is reinforced bolts tightened or lugs remounted and secured. Where brickwork or mortar is brittle, ‘through bolts’ or rectangular tubing will be used to ensure stability and safety of the door.

ï‚· GRILLE / SLATS. The entire curtain is checked for broken or loose links or any part that may be catching in the guide or guide-mouth. Damaged or bent slats cause resistance and strain on the springs, gearbox or chain mechanism and undue strain on the whole system, which unchecked, leads to quicker breakdown and replacement of expensive parts due to unnecessary wear and tear. Discovered damages will be reported. Such additional replacement costs will be quoted for separately.

ï‚· SECTIONAL PANELS. All tracks, hinges, moving parts, panels and rollers are checked, tightened, repaired or replaced. Repairs or replacements discovered during servicing of the door which are not included in the original price, will be reported and will be quoted for separately.

ï‚· MECHANICAL GEARBOX. Play on the drive-shaft of the gearbox will indicate wear and tear on the crown wheel & pinion. Unless sealed, the box will be opened & physically inspected and greased where necessary. Excessive play may require replacement of the gearbox. Excessive play is usually caused when the gears are worn out and may break off at any stage causing risk whereby a door with poor tension could drop down when in an open position. Ensure that the stub-shaft and crown wheel are well keyed and secure and that the pinion is secure. Check for damaged gears on both the crown wheel and pinion. Prop shaft connections to either end (gearbox and barrel) are important. Undue play of holding bolts is corrected and serviceability of the prop shaft is determined. Damaged handles are to be replaced (if possible) where repair work cannot be done.

ï‚· CHAIN WHEEL MECHANISM. Ensure that both the chain wheel and spur gear are secure and that gears interlock well. If any visible damage exists, the condition will be reported and replacement will be quoted for separately. Such damage could pose a safety risk. Grease if necessary. Check that both chain guards are in place and chain has free movement. Make sure the chain is the appropriate size for the chain wheel and that the chain lock (on the guide) is functional. Ensure that the stub-shaft and spur gear are well keyed and secure.

ï‚· PROPSHAFT or BARREL. Hanger slats need to be secured to the barrel and insure that the curtain opens and closes horizontally (not at an angle). Visible checks must be made to ensure that the barrel is straight (Especially open barrels). Side plates and bearing cups must be secure and free movement of bearings possible. The cover box must be free of inward dents and secured in place. Any door that opens and closes with difficulty, usually indicate tension springs that are unserviceable and must be reconditioned.

ï‚· TENSION. This is probably the most important part of the service. Sometimes the motor or gear mechanism will be disconnected from the barrel to determine if the tension is excessive, too weak or correct. Where necessary, adjustments are made. Fortunately there is a fair amount of tolerance and normal loss of tension is gradual except in the event of misuse. When the springs have lost their tension or a spring has broken, a recondition of the barrel will be necessary.

ï‚· LUBRICATION. With time, dust, sand and dirt comes into contact with the grease in the guides and gradually the grease becomes more of a retardant paste and rubbing compound and less of a lubricant. This causes unnecessary tension, wear and tear. Degreasing is therefore often necessary before new grease can be applied. Regular lubrication is therefore important and preventative where applicable. In certain cases lubrication is not advisable due to the nature of the location (excessive sand, dust, sawdust etc.)

ï‚· ELECTRICAL. Here we look for loose connections on the wiring and alarm systems, the yellow warning lights and safety photo beams, that the limit switches have not been tampered with and that settings are correct. It is important to ensure that the maximum permissible wear and tear on the chain

and sprocket wheel has not been reached and that the motor mountings are secure. Any work done to the motor (other than already stated) due to physical damage, or poor function or the removal for routine inspections and/or services to the motor or any of its electronics or accessories, is not included in the service costs. Any damage deemed by the suppliers not to be covered by the warranty, is also excluded. Any such costs are for the clients account. The correct tension setting of the door is imperative for the longevity of any motor, provided the correct size motor is installed.

ï‚· GENERAL. Vehicles, machinery or equipment often dent the guides. Any bumps against the curtain or T-bar, however slight they may be, as well as foreign objects that are placed in the door or pushed into its mechanism, creates unnecessary strain on the functionality of the door, and if left unchecked for any lengthy period of time, can and may create permanent damage. A damaged guide will be panel beated where possible, before replacement is considered. Minor repairs done on site that do not require removal to the workshop or replacement, are included in the service unless otherwise quoted. The warranty period of new or reconditioned doors, includes any damage due to latent defects present in the material during manufacture. Repairs to damage of newly installed doors caused by vandalism or accident will be quoted for separately and for the clients account.

ï‚· PAYMENT. All our work is done on a cash basis unless other arrangements have been made. A minimum of 70% deposit of the full amount is required and the balance to be paid on completion.

ï‚· SERVICE INTERVALS. These are determined during consultation where frequency of use, and the importance of the door, will be the two main deciding factors. Service intervals could therefore vary from weekly to annually.

ï‚· COSTS. Service costs are relative to door sizes, quantity and location (degree of difficulty to execute a decent service). Costs vary from R475.00 upwards, per door, per service excluding VAT.
