Automatic door Servicing at The Church of St John the Evangelist, Carterton

Kaba Gilgen automatic sliding and folding doors serviced by BH Doors and Engineering Ltd. There are two automatic doors on the main entrance to provide a more accessible entrance for persons such as those in Wheelchairs into the Church.

There are two different types, a folding door and a telescopic slider. Both of these types are generally installed to give the greatest clear opening within the structural aperture.

Both doors are touchless automatic as they are fitted with motion detector radars so when a person walks towards the door, it will open.

We have a specific schedule of works we carry out for each different door type which is detailed within our servicing. 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 our customers require as we understand that when a door fails it affects your business.

Our service contract is a fixed cost per visit and is based upon the amount and type of doors within your commercial building, such as a Church or Place of Worship. We always arrange with the customer the most convenient date to reduce the disputation as these automatic doors are on the main entrance.


For 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 number of operations, so you may need to increase the amount of service visits and replacement of parts to ensure the safe and continued operation.

On completion a risk assessment checklist was carried out on each of the doors for the records of the Church.

If you feel your doors require a service or you have a problem request an engineer .
