Prior to us attending your site, we can provide our DBS, Health and Safety policy, insurances and risk assessment. It is important that all documents are available to reduce inconvenience and wasting time so that we can work as soon as possible when we attend site.

Always when we work, we always carry out a risk assessment and deploy our yellow men barriers to designate a safe working area for us and the general public. Where we deem that the risk is high, we would carry out any work at a more suitable time, such as when your building is closed.

Our experienced engineers have been trained on the major manufacturers equipment and are backed up with spare parts accounts to be able to repair your automatic door. This will allow a cost effective and as efficient repair as we understand that if your door fails it will cause inconvenience and potential loss of business.










My doors keep opening and closing in the rain, can you help?
Yes of course, If it is an automatic door please check there are no rain droplets on the sensors or rain on the sensors? If yes, then clean off the water, do they work correctly now. If water can get onto the sensors then you will need to have product specific weatherhoods fitted which will eliminate this fault going forward, call us now to arrange a free site survey.

If you have checked and still not operating, then request an engineer here.

Can I use BH doors if I have a service contract with another company?
Yes of course we have a fixed call out rate that includes the first hour on site, travelling time and mileage so there are no hidden costs.
It is very common within the industry to sell service contracts at a loss to gain the business but operationally the company cannot provide the level of service that you the customer requires.
An example is we always receive call outs on a Friday afternoon where the preferred contractor cannot attend until Monday, which in our opinion is not acceptable as the building needs to be operational and secured at the end of the day. We understand that service is the key to any business as all doors need to work correctly, safely and at all times for your business to operate.

This is why we cover Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Peterborough and Suffolk, to allow us to provide that level of service you require, please call us.

My current contractor has told me the automatic door operator needs replacing as original is obsolete, can you help?
Yes of course, we have accounts with all of the manufacturers and distributors as we are independent, which means that we may be able to source parts which others may find impossible. We pride ourselves on repairing doors rather than selling new.

Also, within BH doors we have a lot of experience with all of the manufacturer’s equipment so the issue may just be a fault which we could rectify or replace service items on a call out or provide a quotation.

Can you fix my door on a call out?
We offer a fixed call out rate which includes the first hour on site, travel time and mileage as generally we either repair within that time or it will require additional works / spare parts to which we will provide a quotation.

Common spare parts are on our engineer’s vans specifically for automatic doors, aluminium doors including pivots, hinges and closers.

“TAfter having a disappointing response from our door installers I looked for an alternative solution and found BH Doors and Engineering on-line. I spoke to David and he arranged to come within a couple of hours and arrived when he said he would. He could not have been more thorough or conscientious, and once he finished our door was working better than it ever had! Thank you David – one of our customers described you as the ‘door doctor’!”
