When your commercial garage door goes down, not only can production get stalled but it can put your business at risk. A commercial garage door protects your business and its inventory while allowing you to move goods and equipment. Luckily most commercial garage door issues can easily be repaired by a professional garage door company like Overhead Door of Sioux City™ and Overhead Door of Yankton™. Here are some of the most common repairs.
Repairing damaged tracks.
Commercial garage doors and close via metal tracks. Wear and tear from prolonged use can warp or damage the tracks. Other types of malfunctions, like broken cables, frozen rollers or equipment colliding with tracks, can cause damage as well; when one part breaks, it can affect another. Service techs can repair the tracks by either straightening out bends, replacing the footings or entire sections of the track.
Cleaning or replacing dirty or damaged rollers.
Rollers are attached to the door and fit inside the tracks, allowing the commercial garage door to open and close. When rollers get dirty, they can’t rotate as easily. Rust can also cause rollers to seize up. Weather conditions can also affect rollers, especially when temperatures drop very low or climb very high. Annual cleaning and lubricating of rollers can tracks can keep commercial garage doors running smoothly.
Replacing worn or damaged torsion springs.
Torsion springs counterbalance the weight of commercial garage doors, allowing them to easily open and close, even by hand if need be (like during a power outage). Commercial garage doors come in various materials and varying sizes to accommodate large and small openings. That means they can be much heavier than a residential door. When the spring breaks, your door won’t move. A professional can replace these springs.
Replacing dented panels.
It’s not uncommon for trucks, forklifts and other types of equipment to accidentally run into a commercial garage door. The good news is if the door is a sectional door, like Thermacore insulated sectional steel doors, the sections can easily be removed and replaced if damaged. Some commercial garage doors, like rolling steel doors, are made for heavy-duty service and can withstand the occasional bump.
