Automatic Door Maintenance

Your commercial doors are designed to last for many years. As a building manager you want to increase the lifespan of your investment and avoid major commercial door repair and costly replacements. Regular preventative maintenance will keep your employees and visitors safe and ensures that your automatic doors work efficiently. 

Automatic door maintenance is not just about ensuring operational efficiency; it's about prioritizing the safety and convenience of everyone who passes through your doors.

A comprehensive maintenance checklist, adhered to with regularity, can prevent unexpected malfunctions that could lead to accidents or security breaches. This automatic door maintenance often includes thorough inspections, cleaning of sensors and tracks, and adjustments to speed and force settings, ensuring that doors operate within the safety standards set by AAADM (American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers).

By investing in a preventative maintenance plan, you're not only extending the life of your automatic doors but also safeguarding your business against potential liabilities and disruptions. This proactive approach to maintenance is essential for any facility relying on the seamless operation of automatic doors.

Routine commercial door maintenance

The best approach is to establish a schedule for routine automatic door inspection and maintenance and to stick to it. This will make sure that your automatic door keeps functioning properly and safely. 

A daily safety check on your automatic door systems will reduce the risk of a malfunction. With a daily checkup you will notice if the door gets more difficult to open, makes more noise or moves too fast or too slow. When a visual inspection shows that something is changing then it is time to call on Advanced Door Service!

Our clients get a detailed maintenance plan based on their particular situation. Here are some of the routine maintenance activities we recommend to keep automatic sliding doors, swing doors and revolving doors running smoothly:

Lubricate moving parts 


Keeping moving parts such as hinges lubricated is key to keeping your doors working smoothly. Regularly lubricate all metal moving parts, but don’t lubricate plastic parts. If you are unsure about the correct lubricant or how to apply it, it is recommended that you call an AAADM certified technician. Doing this correctly ensures the longevity and reliability of your doors, preventing premature wear and tear.

Visually inspect tracks


Check the tracks of sliding doors and make sure the door can run freely. Any debris or obstruction in the tracks can hinder door operation, so it's crucial to keep them clean and clear for optimal performance.

Weather Stripping


Weather stripping around a swing door or revolving door forms a barrier for temperature difference. If you notice draft from the door even when it’s closed, then the weatherstripping will likely need to be replaced. Regular checks and timely replacement of weather stripping can significantly enhance energy efficiency and comfort within your premises.

Lock Latch and Strike Alignment


Swing doors have a latch and strike which need to be well aligned so that your door forms a tight seal. Proper alignment also ensures security and ease of use, contributing to the overall functionality of your door system.



The threshold under your swing door should remain tight so that the elements and rodents are kept out. When the threshold changes then it’s time to call a technician. Maintaining a secure and intact threshold is essential for the safety and hygiene of your environment, preventing unwanted guests and water ingress.
