When is it time to replace your automatic door?


Automatic doors are designed to last for years of use, which provides an excellent return on your original investment. Yet through the passage of time, your automatic door will eventually need to be changed. So when is it time to consider automatic door replacement?

Expensive repairs

If your automatic door gets damaged you might find that the repair costs are as much, if not more, than getting a replacement door. You are set to get more for your money with a new door as it will be updated with the latest features and technology advancements.

Over worked

Although automatic doors are designed for years of use, they will eventually age. And with age can come problems that come from years of heavy use.

If you find yourself regularly facing malfunctions and need to get your door repaired more regularly, this might be a sign it’s time to switch it out for a newer door.

If the manufacture of your door has been discontinued and replacement parts needed to fix your door are no longer easily accessible, that is another sign that it might be time to replace your current automatic door.

Changing needs, codes or environment

Finally, if your usage needs change, safety standards change, building codes update, or if your business needs change, it may be time to reevaluate your equipment. Your doors need to operate optimally for their desired function.

Equally, you might find that overall door condition or the appearance of your door no longer meet the standards or image of your business and it’s time for a change to meet your aesthetic expectations.

While we recommend keeping your doors well-serviced to ensure a long and reliable lifetime, we also think it’s important to know when replacement parts are no longer the answer and it is time to replace your automatic door. This is so you can minimize the risk of accident or injury at your entrances and always enjoy great aesthetics and reliable operation.
