What is Preventive Maintenance?

Preventive maintenance is maintenance that is routinely or regularly performed on equipment or device to reduce the risk of failure or future damage. For roll-up doors, it is performed while it is still working normally so it does not break down unexpectedly.


Preventive maintenance is important for several reasons:

  • Improved door operational efficiency and reliability 
  • Lowers long-term repair expenses
  • Lessens costly downtime
  • More life years of your doors 

The Importance of Preventive Maintenance Program

Most commercial doors and industrial doors are overused and neglected of their conditions. There are also other commercial garage doors that are designed to weight more than half of a ton, such that to imagine the potential danger it would pose if it makes a free-fall failure to your facility workers. 


The best-case sample is the Overhead Door- Fireking 630 Series- Insulated Rolling Steel Fire Rated Service Door model. Designed and engineered as a part of a passive fire protection system to minimize the spread of fire and smoke between separate structures and to enable safe access and give more time for people to stay away from such structure.   


The 630 Series rolling steel fire door is designed for masonry mounted applications including: 


  • warehouses
  • file rooms
  • public record storage
  • material storage locations
  • facilities with paint booths
  • shared walls between businesses
  • public buildings such as libraries


Key highlights include a feature having a mechanical auto resettable hoist (non motorized) that enables easy drop test and reset of the fire door in just seconds. Fusible links are mounted on both sides of the wall that separate to automatically close the door in case of fire.


Even though 630 Series rolling steel fire door is one of the best fire rated roll-up door models, it can have flaws too. What if the 630 Series door does not have a preventive maintenance program and fire broke unexpectedly, one cannot imagine the cost of negligence, incompetence, violation of safety protocols and so forth, possibly for some companies it would cause a ‘head to roll’, or even worst a near-bankruptcy company due to a legal crisis.
