DDA Accessible Door Service

All DDA accessible doors are important entrances, exits and thoroughfares in a building for persons that require assistance. Also, many are linked to the access control and fire alarm systems within buildings. Therefore, to ensure that they continue to function properly, regular service and maintenance is imperative.

We understand that Facilities or Building Managers need to ensure that a building functions correctly and safely which is why we have specific service contract agreements which include –

 

  • Fixed costs
  • Operational testing with interfaces such as fire alarm and access control
  • Testing of forces to open manually
  • Inspecting and testing back up systems such as batteries and UPS supply
  • Testing and inspecting activation devices such as push pads
  • Pre-planned service visits
  • Same or next day response to emergency call outs
  • Qualified and competent engineers
  • Minimised disruption during working
  • Health and safety compliant designating safe working area
  • Risk assessments and safe working practices
  • Documentation for records
  • Conditional reports of equipment for planning future budgets
  • Prior warning of end of life / obsolete equipment with solutions for replacement
  • Accountability of communication, workmanship and value for money.

We also have a specific schedule of works we carry out which is detailed within our service contract agreement. We have used our experience, the manufacturers service specifications and legislation compliance to adopt these procedures for every customer and service contract we offer.

Some of these include inspecting all mechanical components and cleaning sensors, etc. This means that the correct amount of time and engineers’ resource is allocated to ensure your doors are safe, reliable and reducing overall costs.

Preventative maintenance servicing reduces the failure of equipment. This is backed up with the level of service you require as we understand that when a door fails it affects your business.

For all DDA accessible automatic doors as an example the minimum for compliance to BSEN16005 and BS7036 2014 is once per year and a risk assessment checklist document issued.

The manufacturers may specify when service parts are replaced due to the amount of operations, so you may need to increase the amount of service visits and replacement of parts to ensure the safe and continued operation.

If you have one or multiple sites with automatic DDA accessible doors, are looking for a one-off service to a 3-year fixed contract on any manufacturer’s equipment, call us on 0808 1200911 to discuss your requirements.

My current contractor has told me the disabled 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

We also back this up with the level of service you require when an automatic door fails as this affects your customers and business.

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. Also, any quotations and further works are marked up to counteract the loss and as an example a simple battery pack replacement costs £500 instead of £200 including parts and labour and so on.

We at BH doors would never take on a service contract that we could not provide the level of service or the work required for your doors to be to safe and reliable.
