Benefits of Preventative Maintenance Programs

Unplanned downtime and equipment failures can cost you time, money, and a lot of stress. Here are some of the main benefits of having a preventative maintenance plan.

1) Preserved Reliability

Preventative maintenance ensures that all security components, such as bollards, crash barriers, automatic gates, and access control systems, remain in proper working order. Reliable security systems are essential for safeguarding property and assets. Our maintenance and training programs work together to ensure that both equipment operations and the on-site personnel are successful.

2) Cost Savings

Routine maintenance helps identify and address minor issues before they escalate into costly equipment failures or security breaches. A more cost-effective approach is to maintain your security systems rather than having to replace or repair them sooner than needed. A proactive approach, like what Sloan Security Group offers, helps prevent equipment failure, by adhering to regular maintenance procedures that can lead to long-term cost savings and extend the lifespan of your security equipment like retractable bollards, wedge barriers, automatic gates, and more.

3) Improved Safety

Regular maintenance checks can identify and resolve safety hazards, such as damaged fencing, faulty gate operators, or exposed wiring, preventing accidents and injuries to both security personnel and individuals in the vicinity. Conducting preventative maintenance and offering on-site training enhances equipment safety, ensuring a secure environment for both your employees and pedestrians.

4) Optimal Performance

Companies like Sloan Security Group can keep your equipment running more efficiently with daily, weekly, or monthly checks as needed given your specific situation. Ongoing maintenance should include regular testing, calibration, and software updates, ensuring that the security system operates at its best. Making this a priority enhances the overall performance and effectiveness of the system and gives site managers additional peace of mind.

5) Minimal Downtime

Preventive maintenance programs like those offered by Sloan Security Group are designed to have a direct and positive impact on your day-to-day operations by decreasing and optimizing equipment downtime procedures. When security equipment is failing it can add stress across an organization and have a large effect on the day-to-day of many people. Having a service partner with the expertise and response time to remedy situations quickly can help facility managers by allowing them to focus on other things.

6) Asset Protection

Neglecting maintenance can lead to a significantly shorter lifespan of security equipment. No one wants to have to replace retractable bollards, wedge barriers, or operated gates much sooner than they have to. Preventative measures are intended by the equipment manufacturers for a reason and that is to keep it in good working order for many years.

Don't wait to start a maintenance program for your automated security equipment. The sooner you start, the better off you'll be in the long run. If you would like information or pricing on a preventative maintenance plan for your business, please contact us.
