Automatic Door Maintenance Sheet

When automatic door malfunctions occur, not only are employees and customers locked out, but building and accessibility code requirements may not be met. Accessibility is too important to leave to chance.

That’s why we’ve created this handy automatic door maintenance checklist for you and your employees to follow. The template asks for general safety checks and those specifically related to the sensor and the door. Thanks to Lumiform’s flexible form builder, you can also quickly adapt the checklist to specific features of your automatic door.
