Q?

Q?

Can you install an automatic opening sliding or swing door in my house?

Yes, we can automate almost any door.

Q?

Do I need to advise council when installing an automatic opening door?

A.

In most cases the installation of a new Specified System requires a building consent (automatic sliding doors come under Specified System SS 3/1). Sometimes a consent is not required, always check with your local council in the first instance.

Q?

Do you install and repair domestic/residential garage doors?

Are automatic doors lockable and secure?

A.

Yes, we can fit electric or manual locking to most types of door.

Q?

Can automatic opening doors be operated via remote or other opening devise for use by disabled people?

A.

Yes, automatic doors can be operated by any clean contact type of activation (i.e. sensor, switch, remote, computer etc.)

Q?

What on-going maintenance is required for an automatic door?

A.

For commercial properties automatic sliding doors require a quarterly (three monthly) maintenance check for building compliance. Residential properties do not have the same compliance requirements, although we would recommend your automatic door be checked six monthly or annually, to ensure it will work safely in the event of a power failure. Please phone us for more information.

Q?

Will my automatic door still work if there is a power failure?

A.

Yes, as long as your door unit’s battery is charging correctly and not running on battery power for extended lengths of time. If you have a service contract in place with us the battery in your door, along with all other components, will be checked every three months.
