According to the new regulations applicable for manufacturing of doors (standard PN-EN 13241-1:2005) ensuring of safe door operation becomes more and more important and therefore the use of highest quality components with required certificates is so important.
The producer should take responsibility for its product. The use of low quality components and elimination of safety devices (such as spring and cable failure devices) can bring initial savings but in the long run, it cannot compensate future problems with frequent and costly repairs, not to mention consequences of accidents involving personnel.
Therefore selection of component producer (quality of components), technology used, quality control and cooperation between user and designer is very important in sectional door manufacturing.
The first stage of preparation for door production is establishing all customer’s and designer’s expectations and agreeing the final parameters of the doors to be produced.
Experienced personell should take care of taking measurements, preparation and selection of materials required for door production and making accurate calculation for torsion springs.
The production process should proceed according to recommended technology and with constant quality control. Installation of door and automation used is also very important to overall performance of the doors.
The common mistake is to expect the user always to properly operate equipment according to user manual. Sectional doors should be prepared and produced in a way to maximally reduce a risk of accidents and defects caused by improper use.
Service is very important factor in door operation and very often an important criterion for selection of supplier (price of replacement parts, service reaction time, expertise).
Selection of garage doors supplier should be very well thought out and essential stage during construction process of industrial facilities and residential garages.
