Knowing the frequency of automatic gate maintenance is essential. To ensure their role in the safety and accessibility of buildings without fail, automatic garage doors must be serviced regularly.
In a condominium, the garage door items such as, garage door smart keypad, door driving motor, garage door smart sensor and garage door smart switch, go unnoticed by the other flagship equipment of the building. Until the day the motorized opening system crashed. In addition to maintenance, which is mandatory, it is sometimes necessary to consider replacing the garage door smart switch and garage door smart sensor. In all cases, strict standards must be observed.
A check must be carried out every six months
As they are potentially dangerous, automatic garage doors are regulated. In particular, it is mandatory that the keypads, switches and sensors of garage door be checked periodically. The co-ownership must enter into a contract with a maintenance company, so that it intervenes for a control operation at least every six months. This commitment must be made as soon as the door is put into service.
The professional responsible for maintenance must, if he detects any defect in the first months after installation, notify the condominium so that he can. Another advantage of this solution for the condominium is being able to negotiate prices and reduce certain costs – travel costs, for example – by signing combined elevator and garage maintenance contracts.
In practice, many condominiums choose to entrust in the installation company for the maintenance of garage door smart keypad, garage door smart sensor and garage door smart switch. Or opt for an installer in charge of other equipment, namely an elevator technician, whose area of expertise covers the installation and maintenance of garage doors.
The switch to motorization must be voted on
A condominium, even equipped with a classic garage door with manual opening, may consider replacing it with a motorized garage gate. The case is far from marginal in the old park. The building’s garage door, though original, was still robust. It is the concern with safety and also the comfort of a remote inauguration that decided us to carry out the work.
A choice enough to find the right door
On the material side, the condo is full of options. The garage doors to collective parking lots come in different models, with more or less complex mechanisms, depending on whether they open vertically or horizontally. Vertically, there are hinged doors, made up of a single rigid panel, guillotine doors and roller shutters, whose system is similar to that of the roller shutters.
If the handling system is horizontal, the offer is divided into French hinged doors, equipped with a movable leaf and electric jacks, sectional – or sectional -, made up of articulated horizontal blades that slide on fixed rails to the ceiling, or sliding doors.
So which system to use? Overhead garage doors with garage door smart keypad are by far the most common: they represent at least 85% of the market. Its main advantage: less effort in emergency maneuvers in case of system failure.
