Visual Inspection:

Inspect your industrial door operating system on a regular basis. Check if there is any visible damage in track assembly. Have a look at the tires on the rollers to see if they are straight and tight on the axle. Check the counterbalance lift cables to see if there are any exposed wires or loose connections. It is also very important to check the functioning of spring counterbalance assembly as the industrial door operating system can generate power to lift the door, even if the spring is damaged, which can be dangerous.
