Preventative maintenance offsets the likelihood for repair but general wear and tear will mean certain parts still need to be changed or repaired during the life of the system.
A repair is something we all want to avoid. It can be as a result of a maintenance inspection leading to the replacement of a moving part such as a door lever, floor spring or hinge or something more serious such as a broken glass panel as a result of an accident.
We cover repairs to all the major European manufacturers systems. If a system is discontinued we will advise the most suitable alternative. If a glass panel breaks we replace in the shortest time possible (depending on the type of glass) with clear toughened panels replaced in as little as 2 or 3 days.
We will also advise on how to prevent the same happening again and offer solutions to remove the distress or inconvenience caused in future. For example we can apply safety film to existing toughened glass panels so if a panel does explode again the glass remains intact and small fragments do not scatter around the vicinity.
In all cases a preventative maintenance program to inspect glass doors, partitioning, floors and balustrades is a very good way to offset costly and unwarranted repairs with the lifetime cost of the system lower in the long term much the same way as following the manufactures maintenance program for a car.
