for radiation protection doors
Our service technicians have the driving technological, mechanical, metal engineering and electro-technical know-how, which is necessary to repair existing radiation protection doors.
Safety standards of radiation protection doors
You can considerably prolong the lifetime of doors, gates, windows and power driven systems by regular maintenance. Defects can be detected and repaired at an early stage. Thereby total losses can be avoided. Furthermore you protect yourself from personal injuries and loss of insurance coverage.
The following maintenance tasks can be done by us:
In case your object is not listed above, kindly check with us if we have the necessary expert knowledge for your object.
After signing of a maintenance contract, our expert inspects and records the objects to be maintained. In case of loss, we establish the necessary inspection books and organize the maintenance handbooks of the manufacturers, respectively the general building inspectorate approval. The original inspection books remain with you, additionally we will keep copies of the inspection books. The annual general maintenance dates will be marked in our calendars, thus they won’t be forgotten. All maintenance steps are documented in check lists, which we developed ourselves, and they will enable you to explain the condition of your object to the authorities at any time. We will be happy to tell you our references and to convince you of our expert knowledge.
Clamp forces of power driven radiation protection doors must be limited, in order to prevent broken bones, contusions or head injuries by pinching, shearing, knocking over or pulling in by the power operated radiation protection door. In order to guarantee this for all our doors, in addition to the initial testing by a recognized institution, we measure the clamp forces of all our doors during the start-up procedure and add the testing records to the documentation.
To verify that your radiation protection door’s clamp or operational forces are not too high, you can perform the simple test, as described below. You need to get a 20 mm thick standard Styrodur plate (material 2800 C) from your local D-I-Y store. Out of this plate you cut strips of 65 mm width and 400 mm length.
First you take two of these prepared strips on top of each other and press them firmly against the counter closing edge of your gate. Then you close the door and check if one or both Styrodur strips have been damaged. If both strips are still intact, repeat the test with just one strip. If at least one strip is damaged by this test, you should call an experienced inspector, who can measure the precise clamp or operational forces of your power driven gate system. If the strips remain undamaged, it will be sufficient if you ask the expert, who performs the yearly maintenance, to measure the closing forces and to give you the measurement records.
The following video was recorded to better visualize an approximate estimation as well as a precise measurement of the clamp or operational forces with the proper measuring tool.
