Industrial door checks
Servicing of industrial doors, gates, loading bay equipment and other goods in and out associated equipment is seen by leading industrial door companies, such as BID Group, to be the most beneficial and cost effective measure of ensuring continually safe and reliable operation. While most companies view the maintenance of machinery on their production lines as vital, many overlook the maintenance of their industrial doors, failing to appreciate that the production line could come to a standstill if a goods-in or goods-out door were jam shut for example, resulting in costly down time and lost production.
