Inspection of industrial doors, lifting accessories and garage equipment


Ashdale Engineering has a wealth of experience assisting duty holders with the continued safe operation of industrial doors, lifting accessories and garage equipment.

We examine all types of lifting tackle, including chain blocks, lever hoists, slings, shackles, eyebolts, spreader beams and machine attachments from small garages and workshops to large manufacturing plants and factories.

We take a practical approach to inspecting this type of equipment, deploying multi-skilled engineers to tackle all assets. For example, we can cover vehicle hoists, jacks, and compressors on one visit.

We co-ordinate our work with the people in your business who know when the most convenient time to visit will be and work with them to ensure everything is inspected in one sitting. This approach not only ensures full safety and compliance, but also minimises disruption and inconvenience quite significantly.

Our specialist team understand that periodic safety inspection is not only a legal requirement, but a practical necessity, as this type of equipment is subject to heavy usage hence a high level of wear. The recommendations and advice we give details clearly and practically any defects picked up and what remedial work may be required to ensure the safe and effective continued use of this equipment.

All lifting accessories and garage lifting equipment require examination in accordance with Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

The inspection of industrial doors is undertaken in accordance with the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), which states that all equipment provided in the workplace, must be safe and fit for use. Impartial examinations can also be a cost-effective way to co-ordinate maintenance requirements by reducing non-essential repair work.

We work independently and typically undertake thorough annual examinations to comply with these regulations.
