Automatic Door Maintenance RegulationsTexas Access Controls automatic door maintenance

According to Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations, building owners are responsible for keeping their automatic sliding doors, swinging doors and revolving doors in good working order. This includes the operation, efficiency, and usage of automatic doors to be maintained according to automatic door manufacturer’s specifications and standards.

Building managers can enlist the services of an AAADM certified technician for maintenance which is compliant with these laws and regulations. Some of the items that are included in a certified automated door maintenance checklist include:

  • Ensuring safe activation and operation of door sensors, mats, and holding beams
  • Assessing integrity and condition of door hardware
  • Removing any hazards around doorways
  • Inspecting fire prevention and protection systems
  • Confirming compliance with emergency escape routes

Routine Commercial Door Maintenance

A regular maintenance routine keeps your door operational and functioning safely. Here is what you can do to keep your doors working properly:

A daily safety check on your automatic door systems will reduce the risk of a malfunction. With a daily checkup you will notice if the door opens smoothly or gets more difficult to open, makes more noise or moves too fast or too slow, and stays open when it needs to. When a visual inspection shows that something is changing then it is time to call on Texas Access Controls!

Our clients receive a detailed maintenance plan based on their situation. Here are some of the routine maintenance activities we will typically include in the plan to keep automatic sliding doors, swing doors and revolving doors running smoothly:

Lubricate Moving Parts 

Keeping moving parts such as hinges lubricated is key to keeping your doors working smoothly and preventing rust. Regularly lubricate all metal moving parts, but don’t lubricate plastic parts.

Visually Inspect Tracks

Check the tracks of sliding doors and make sure the door can run freely. 

Weather Stripping

Weather stripping around a swing door or revolving door forms a barrier for temperature difference. If you notice draft from the door even when it’s closed, then the weatherstripping will likely need to be replaced.

Lock Latch and Strike Alignment

Swing doors have a latch and strike which need to be well aligned so that your door forms a tight seal. 


The threshold under your swing door should remain tight so that the elements and rodents are kept out. When the threshold changes then it’s time to call a technician.
