“Opportunity knocks only once. You never know if you'll get another opportunity.” As we are living now in times of recession- a time of Co-Vid, the most pessimist sees this difficult time catastrophic, but an optimist sees this as an opportunity.


Probably, your loading dock is functioning hardly on 50% skeletal force manpower and equipment, or you are still figuring out day and night on how to survive your loading business in these hard times, opportunity and time are big factors to consider and vitally important these days.       


While on the brighter side, summarily as based on's 2020-2025 statistical forecast report dated Feb. 14, 2020 (Globe  Newswire), ‘The commercial doors market is majorly driven by the rise in the commercial and residential construction sector, coupled with the growth in retrofit activities worldwide. The commercial sector has witnessed a boost in the last few years due to the demographic shift in the consumer base. Additionally, strong economic growth increased construction activities, and growth in corporate profits have increased expenditure on renovation and expansion activities, thereby driving the demand in North America’, as can be seen by optimist’s view on the future of loading docks.


Whether you may heed this advice on an optimistic viewpoint, or you may let this current situation as it is, in, either way, opportunity and time is ticking every second, and in these times of uncertainty, who knows.


Considering summer is here and Co-Vid daily reports seem to be flattening its statistical curb of progress, probably it is an opportunity to perform regular maintenance checks on your commercial and residential overhead doors. That would be timely before winter where the cold can cause springs to stiffen and harder to expand with cracking, misalignment and wearing parts can happen which after repair jobs will line up and pops anytime. 


To avoid the inconvenience of having your overhead doors repaired during cold seasons, taking advanced measures by setting up a preventative maintenance program and have them regularly checked.

What is Preventive Maintenance?

Preventive maintenance is a regular or routine maintenance procedure performed on a device or equipment to lessen the risk of future damage or failure, costly downtime, and long-term repair expense.


As constant daily use of equipment put more stress on your door system, the more it is susceptible to break down, or failure to function normally. And at times door maintenance is often postponed until the problem occurs which eventually becomes a much more expensive repair, increases downtime cost, and lost productivity.


Preventive Maintenance Program offers several benefits:

  • Increase operational efficiency, safety, and reliability
  • Extend the lifespan of your equipment
  • Reduce the malfunctioning of equipment
  • Lessens costly downtime
  • Lessen long-term repair expense

What is the recommended maintenance schedule?

The frequency of maintenance services depends on several factors like working environment, door usage, and other conditions of the door’s operation. Mostly, it depends on the program schedules, while some have three to six months of preventive maintenance schedules. 


Just-Rite Equipment offers annual or as needed scheduled maintenance programs to assist you in extending the life of your commercial door.
