Automatic Swing Door Service at Maggies Centre Churchill Hospital, Oxford

Today we serviced the Geze automatic swing doors at the Maggies Centre at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.

The Geze UFO operators are concealed within the floor threshold beneath the doors and requires large stainless-steel plates to be removed.

As part of the contract, we carried out the works before the centre opened to eliminate the risks of tripping or falling for persons trying to enter or exit the building. We always deploy our safety barriers to designate a safe working area as part of our health and safety policy and risk assessment.

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 to update the compliance records for Maggies.
