Maintaining the performance and longevity of your automatic sliding door involves a combination of daily safety checks, routine maintenance, and professional inspections. Daily safety checks help detect any immediate issues with the door’s activation, safety, and surrounding environment. Routine maintenance includes regular check-ups to clean the door track of debris and monitor the door’s overall functioning, with a focus on the ease of opening and closing which can indicate potential issues with rollers or other components. Alongside these, periodic inspections by AAADM (American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers) certified professionals are crucial to evaluate and maintain the door’s various components like sensors, glass, guide rails, and gears, ensuring the door remains in accordance with manufacturer standards.

If your Automatic Sliding Door isn’t fully closing, it could be due to a variety of reasons.  Here are some steps to identify and possibly resolve the issue.

  1. Check the Sensors: Automatic sliding doors use sensors to detect when to open and close. If these sensors are blocked or dirty, they might not function properly. Ensure that there are no objects in the sensor’s detection range and contact SHARC for cleaning.
  2. Inspect the Door Track: The track of the sliding door should be clean and free of any obstructions. Dirt, debris, or physical damage to the track can prevent the door from fully closing. Clean the track and remove any obstructions, sand, rocks, etc. If the track is damaged, you may need to have it repaired or replaced.
  3. Examine the Door’s Rollers: If the door’s rollers are damaged or worn out, you may hear a rumbling or squeaking sound coming from above the sliding panels as they move.  This can prevent the door from closing properly. These may need to be adjusted, repaired, or replaced.
  4. Look at the Door’s Hardware: Check the door panels for any damage.  Damage to the door itself can prevent it from closing fully.
  5. Professional Maintenance: If you’re still experiencing problems, consider calling SHARC. Our regular maintenance programs can prevent these issues from occurring in the first place and can solve any persistent problems.


Remember, it’s important to perform regular safety checks and maintenance on your automatic sliding doors. Not only does this help ensure that they continue to function properly, but it also keeps the users of the door safe. If you’re unsure about any aspect of your door’s operation, it’s always best to consult with SHARC Door Controls Inc.
