How to Keep Your Commercial Door Safe

Commercial doors get used a lot. We don’t often think about it, but they are constantly opening and closing and enduring the everyday activity of the space. On top of this, doors in Canada are often subject to the extreme, fluctuating temperatures that come with every season. It pays to maintain your doors properly because maintenance is cheaper than emergency repairs. Here are a few tips to help you extend the lifespan of your doors and what to do if you need commercial door repair in Toronto.

Tip #1: Create Housekeeping Policies

Many commercial spaces have regular cleaners to come and keep the place looking great. That can help with the longevity of your doors, but it’s essential to have housekeeping policies in place as well. Simple things like keeping doorway areas clear of debris can ensure your doors have the space to open safely and smoothly. That alone can help avoid unnecessary damage that can come with dents or breakage, especially near the bottom of the doors. 

Tip #2: Invest in Door Bumpers

Door bumpers are those pieces of plastic, rubber, or coiled metal that prevent a door from hitting the walls. While we often think of them as protecting the walls, they can also help protect the doors. This is especially true in commercial spaces where the walls may be tougher than the doors. By investing in door bumpers, you keep your walls and doors safe and prevent potentially unsafe situations with doors getting flung open and swinging into people or products.

Tip #3: Seal and Insulate

Proper insulation is essential, not simply for the health of your doors but for keeping your heating and cooling costs down year-round. Seals provide an added layer of protection. Proper seals and insulation are vital, especially in Toronto, where temperatures fluctuate rapidly. Many commercial door repairs in Toronto can be prevented by people calling their local door professionals to come in and replace the seals and insulation of their commercial doors.

Tip #4: Get Regular Door Maintenance

Like everything else in your business, your doors can use regular love and care to keep them working correctly. When you invest in regular commercial door maintenance, you’re getting the experts to come in and realign, patch up and so much more. Plus, you can get little repairs and fixes done early instead of waiting for a door to be completely replaced, helping control costs.

Tip #5

Do not keep the door open by putting objects between the top of the door and the frame. We see that all the time in the field and cleaners, movers, or tradespeople usually do it. It causes the hinges to stretch and the door to sag and, over time, damage the door and frame.

Tip #6

Don’t use salt too generously in the winter. Many people don’t realize what salt does to the doors and frames, aluminum in particular but metal as well. overtime it damages aluminum so badly it creates holes and eventually water damage as well.
