With energy-saving being high on the requirements for most new and retro-fit building projects, including government incentives if the buildings meet certain criteria, high-speed doors are becoming increasingly popular. Usually manufactured out of industrial fabrics, high-speed doors are usually installed behind a main security door which is raised at the start of the working day, leaving the automatic high-speed door to open and close on demand of workers, fork-lift truck drivers, and other users. Though these doors are reasonably simple to install, they can contain both complex counterbalance assemblies to keep the door fabric tight, but they also use more complex electronics than conventional industrial doors.
The purpose of the ABBE Level 3 Award in Installation, Faults & Repair of High-Speed Doors qualification is to provide the learner with the ability to assess the risk of the repair situation in the first instance, create a methodology to reduce any risk to a minimum, use their experience to accurately diagnose faults, how to safely repair those faults while protecting themselves, and also ensuring the safety of those who may be used to being in the vicinity of the door.
The qualification includes, Health and Safety requirements, installation, fault finding and safe repair of high-speed doors, identification of sprung or un-sprung high-speed doors, extra precautions to take in a situation a door is sprung, fault diagnosis, fault repair, what to do if the door is beyond immediate repair. The course qualification includes industry safety standards which should be maintained on every high-speed door and gives reference to Industry bodies who should be utilized to ensure the installer maintains the latest standard on any job they attend.
Basic commissioning of LOW VOLTAGE electrical equipment is included.
