Commercial garage doors are built to withstand the daily wear and tear of frequent use. However, like any other machinery, they have a lifespan and will eventually require replacement or repair. It’s important to know what parts of the garage door are more likely to wear out and the signs that indicate it’s time for maintenance or repair. As a business owner, it’s essential to keep your commercial garage door in good condition to ensure safety, security, and efficient operations. In this post, we’ll discuss the common components of a commercial garage door that wear out and how JKN Doors can help.

  1. Springs: Springs are an essential part of a garage door and work to pull the door up and down. However, these springs wear out over time from the constant pressure and weight of the door. Signs of a failing spring include difficulty lifting the door, a loud popping sound when opening or closing, and an uneven or crooked door. JKN Doors can replace your worn springs with heavy-duty, long-lasting springs to ensure your commercial garage door operates smoothly.


  1. Rollers: The rollers located along the sides of the garage door enable it to move up and down effortlessly. Over time, these rollers can crack, become bent, or lose their shape due to debris, lack of lubrication, and wear and tear. A worn-out roller can result in a noisy and jerky garage door, leading to missed deadlines and safety hazards. Regular maintenance or replacement of your door’s rollers by JKN Doors can prevent these issues and extend the lifespan of your garage door.


  1. Cables: The garage door cables work alongside the springs to lift, lower and stabilize the door. Worn-out cables can cause erratic door movements, door misalignments, and breakage, which can result in injuries, damage to property, and inconvenience. JKN Doors’ experienced technicians can replace worn cables with high-quality steel cables that last longer and operate smoothly.


  1. Tracks: Tracks guide the rollers and cable system, enabling the garage door to move up and down. If the garage door tracks become misaligned, bent or damaged, it can cause damage to the garage door, resulting in costly repairs or unsafe work conditions. The experts at JKN Doors can inspect the tracks for damage and provide you with repair services or new track installation to prevent costly malfunctions or wasted productivity.


  1. Openers: Commercial garage door openers ensure that the garage door opens and closes automatically. However, with frequent use, these openers can fail due to electrical malfunctions, sensor damage, or overuse, which can lead to productivity loss, operational hazards, and employee safety concerns. JKN Doors can repair or replace your garage door opener, ensuring that the problem won’t be repeated and the job is completed with maximum efficiency.
