Insulated doors allow you to maintain a different temperature on each side of the door. These doors allow you to maintain climate control within your warehouse or building. They also help to keep your building more energy efficient, which can help with lowering your cooling costs during the summer time and heating costs in the winter. In order to obtain all the benefits from your insulated doors, keep your eyes open for these three signs that the doors need to be repaired.
Cracks can occur. This can be caused by impacts by objects, by extreme temperature changes, or they can simply develop over time. Once the panels or insulation are cracked, the door is no longer useful at blocking unwanted air exchange or precipitation from entering the building. These will definitely need to be repaired in order to maintain climate control within your building and to not waste money on heating or cooling costs.
If your insulated door does not fully open or it closes when you do not want it to, this suggests a problem with the door and hardware. Or if it is motorized, the motor may grind or start and stop frequently. When this happens, you should contact a service technician in order to repair the door. It could be any number of things including broken spring, corroded bearings, a broken gear or hand chain, or the door has lost tension or out of balance.
