Guardian Door Service Program

A proactive plan for preventative maintenance.

Nothing is more costly than unexpected interruptions to your day-to-day operations. The NELCO Door Service Program has been implemented to minimize the possibility of breakdowns and to extend the life of your entry system. A comprehensive plan consisting of multi-point inspections, corrective adjustments, and safety evaluations ensure continual system functionality. The scheduling of our service is always coordinated in advance with room usage and availability to minimize any potential for interference. After each scheduled service, you will receive a report detailing the maintenance performed, the general condition, and any applicable recommendations to enhance the life of your shielded door system. If other repairs are required outside of the maintenance plan, a proposal will be submitted for approval prior to work. This door maintenance service can be made to accommodate standard lead-shielded doors and also neutron-shielded doors.
