Avoid These Glass Door MIstakes
More than just a way to enter or exit the building, your commercial glass doors create a first impression for customers or an opportunity for thieves. Company doorways are often neglected, leading to costly damage that may require a door to be replaced. To escape this extra expense, pay close attention to door maintenance needs and avoid making these mistakes with your glass doors.
Mistake 1: Ignoring Weather Stripping
The weather extremes in Maryland fluctuate throughout the year, from harsh snowy winters to humid summer months. Your doors are protected from moisture buildup and weather conditions by a rubber seal. As time goes on, the seal can crack or peel loose. Not checking for damage or failing to replace a poor seal can damage the door frame, cause the glass to experience heavy condensation, and make it harder to regulate the building’s internal temperature.
Mistake 2: Ignoring Misaligned Doors
Glass panel doors that are misaligned may have problems with the seal when they are closed or create difficulty when turning the lock. A door that has not been centered can stick in the doorframe and chip with each open or closing movement. Our door repair services can make sure the door is correctly hung in the frame and make the repairs needed to avoid damaging the frame or the glass insert as it swings shut.
Mistake 3: Ignoring Door Placement
If the entrance is small, recessed, or narrow, it can cause damage to the glass from the bumping against the walls. You may not be able to control the size of the entryway, but you can have door bumpers installed on the outer walls. You can also have our repair team install pneumatic door closures to slow down and limit the pressure of both opening and closing activity.
