Automatic Doors Servicing, Wallingford Hospital Oxford Health NHS Trust

Today we serviced the automatic swing and sliding doors at Wallingford Hospital for Oxford Health NHS trust.

The hospital has a mixture of door types and all are installed to give easy access for the staff and patients who would find it difficult to open normal manual doors so these automatic doors provide the perfect solution. Many of the doors are linked to the access control system throughout the hospital and also the fire alarm to allow emergency escape.

As we are an independent company, we can source parts form all of the manufacturers to give total flexibility and be able to help all of our customers regardless of the manufacturers equipment they have on their site.

On this site they have Dorma, Geze, Besam, Horton, Assa Abbloy and FAAC operators to which we support.

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

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.

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 the door for the records of the hospital. The automatic door systems were cleaned, demonstrated including a fire alarm opening test and left in working order.
