Maintenance Programs do Save Money

Preventive maintenance programs save money by reducing and eliminating breakdown costs and dramatically extending the operating life of your gate operators or turnstiles. The most obvious benefit is reduced labor costs for all service performed on equipment enrolled in a program. You have the assurance that manufactures maintenance tasks are being completed and wearable components are replaced per manufacturers recommendations.  This eliminates expensive repair service calls for parts such as belts, batteries, springs and guides to name a few.

We all know little problems lead to bigger problems.  An example would be a worn $5 guide that goes uncorrected and leads to uneven wear on a sprocket that eventually bends a shaft that damages - an $800 gearbox.  We all want a reduction or elimination in frustrating and costly down time.  Routine maintenance is also important for the safe operation of all equipment and decrease long term repair expenses.

Each preventive maintenance visit includes a written checklist of tasks completed and work performed, along with recommendations for any needed repairs or consumable part replacement for the specific piece of equipment being maintained.  Scheduling and maintenance history all tracked and maintained by Mid-Atlantic Entry Systems.  It’s that easy.

Programs include monthly, quarterly and semi-annual maintenance.  It all depends on the type equipment and number of daily cycles. For most residential sites semi-annual visits is sufficient, gated communities and commercial sites generally quarterly but again it depends on daily cycles. Crash rated equipment is usually monthly or quarterly depending on cycles and security level.

Some maintenance plans come with guaranteed response time for repair service should you need.  Plans can even be customized.  The real question is can you afford not to be enrolled in a maintenance plan.
