Industrial Garage Doors

To ensure a long-lasting and hassle-free life span of your industrial garage doors, implement a regular maintenance plan. Durban Door Services offer service arrangements, that can be worked into your business’s annual schedule.

With these maintenance plans, you can alleviate the stress of remembering to schedule the job every 6 to 12 months, offering peace of mind. Beyond the immediate relief, the long-term benefits are substantial, translating to cost savings over time. A well-maintained industrial garage door is not only efficient but is also more likely to withstand the test of time compared to its unmaintained counterparts, making it a wise investment for the longevity of your business operations.

Industrial Garage Door Services: Durban Door Services provides flexible solutions for industrial garage doors, catering to various needs. For those not seeking a regular maintenance plan, our one-off industrial garage door service is an ideal option. This is particularly suitable for doors with infrequent use, such as those on storage units. Our comprehensive servicing includes tasks like slat curtain alignment, spring adjustment, lubrication of working parts, and securing loose components.

Identifying when your industrial garage door needs service is crucial. Signs include slower and more challenging manual opening and closing, louder-than-usual motor sounds, sticking in guide rails, or unusual grinding noises from the barrel.

In situations where unexpected issues arise, Durban Door Services promptly addresses industrial garage door repairs. Our experienced team is available during standard working hours or, if needed, after hours by arrangement. Repairs cover a range of issues, including impact damage that bends door slats and bottom rails, broken or worn mechanisms/chains and sprockets, loose side guides or covers, re-tensioning of springs, alignment and lubrication of door slats and guides, replacement of rusted components, addressing storm damage or extreme winds, handling break-ins or forced entries, and addressing broken counterbalancing springs through removal, overhaul, and refitting of roller door barrels.

For more information or to schedule services and repairs for your industrial roller shutter doors, please reach out to Clive Osborne at Durban Door Services. We are dedicated to ensuring the optimal functionality and longevity of your industrial garage doors.

Tips & Tricks


Durban Door Services recommends that you regularly clean garage doors, The more regularly you clean garage doors, the more money you will end up saving on repairs. Use a mild detergent to remove corrosive chemicals and dirt, especially around the cables, springs and the top of a roll-up door curtain. This will allow you to monitor their condition very carefully.


Don't service or repair them. These systems are under extreme tension and pressure, and an injury can occur in the blink of an eye. Only a qualified professional should work on them. This is an essential safety tip.


If your garage door is damaged, even only slightly dented, it is still very important to seek professional assistance. An operating system may be damaged which will cause premature wear, and result in a dangerous environment later on. Always ensure that the safety of your work staff (if your garage door is an industrial one), or your family at home (if you have automated garage doors at home) comes first.

Annual Inspections


While we strongly encourage you to leave repairs and service to professionals, you can check all the bolts, nuts, screws, springs and cables. If something is loose, tighten it. These parts are responsible for allowing the doors to move smoothly. If a component is clearly worn, call a professional to replace it.


Using the right cleaning and maintenance products is key. Never use grease on the runners or tracks, it encourages the build-up of dust and dirt. Instead, use a light spray with WD-40 or Q-20 on the other parts. A grease lubricant can be used if it is a roller shutter.


Remember that performing these basic checks can save you money and time, whether it is in your business or at home. By delaying or avoiding these inspections you may end up having to replace valuable parts, like the motor, the torsion springs or even the entire system!

“Durban Door Services installed our automatic garage door some years ago, after all the other companies were unable to assist because of its unusual size! They service and maintain the equipment on a regular basis, and are always on hand if there are any unforeseen problems. We have always found their services to be swift and efficient. Thank you Clive and the DDS Team.”
