Essential Roller Shutter Servicing: Compliance, Frequency, and Tailored Packages

In today's fast-paced business environment, ensuring the operational efficiency and safety of your roller shutters is crucial. Regular servicing not only complies with legal requirements but also prolongs the lifespan of your doors, ensuring they function correctly and safely. In this article, we delve into why roller shutter servicing is essential, the legal standards it meets, the recommended frequency based on usage, and introduce our tailored Bronze, Silver, and Gold servicing packages designed to cater to your specific needs.

The Legal Requirements for Roller Shutter Servicing

In the UK there are strict legal standards governing the maintenance and operation of roller shutters to ensure public and employee safety. Regular checks and maintenance are mandated to prevent accidents and ensure the door’s mechanisms comply with safety regulations. Failing to adhere to these regulations can result in penalties, legal action, and increased risk of accidents.

Why You Need to Service Your Roller Shutter

Safety and Security: Regular servicing ensures that your roller shutters remain in optimal working condition, providing secure and reliable access to your premises.

Preventive Maintenance: Routine checks can identify and rectify minor issues before they escalate into major problems, potentially saving you time and money.

Compliance: Adhering to the legal requirements for maintenance and documentation keeps your business compliant with CE safety standards.

Operational Efficiency: Well-maintained shutters operate more smoothly, reducing the risk of operational disruptions and downtime.

Frequency of Servicing: Tailored to Your Usage

The frequency of servicing required for your roller shutters largely depends on the extent of their usage. Doors that are operated more frequently require more regular checks and maintenance:

Low usage (up to 5 operations per day): Annual servicing may suffice.

Medium usage (5 to 10 operations per day): Bi-annual servicing is advisable.

High usage (over 10 operations per day): Quarterly servicing is recommended.
