Access Control Equipment & Cameras
Access control equipment such as maglocks and strikes, telephone entries, card readers and exit buttons should be inspected at least annually to ensure their efficacy. Maglocks can become loose over time, resulting in doors not shutting properly or batteries lose voltage- both can create unsafe conditions for the people they are meant to protect.
Camera lenses should also be cleaned once to twice a year and refocused, especially when outdoors. ACS will also inspect recording equipment to ensure proper settings for uninterrupted recording.
Gates and Overhead Door Automation
For your equipment to operate properly, preventative maintenance is a must, per ALL manufacturer's manuals. Also, many companies aren't aware that overhead doors and gates fall under the OSHA General Duty Clause of 1970. To be OSHA compliant, Preventative Maintenance needs to be performed on a regular basis and you must have a record of it, which ACS will provide. The frequency will depend on the cycles, the application and type of gate or overhead door.
