AGDA is making some changes, and there's a few we thought you might like to know about!
Another year has rolled around and we would like to share with you our brand new membership offer, which you will find heavily reduced from previous years. It is our aim to raise awareness within the garage door industry and we need your participation to help our cause.
Dealers - $200 + GST; Installers - $100 + GST
For our other changes? Well, we’d like your help with that. AGDA exists to serve our members but sometimes it’s not easy to really know what all of our members need from us. For that reason we have created a members survey to help shape the future of AGDA. We have ideas sure, but we really need your input to make sure our efforts are in the right areas.
What’s in it for you? On Top of our eternal gratitude you will go in the draw to win our membership survey prize valued at $1,000! Simply complete the survey and fill in your name, business name, phone number and email on the final question to go in the draw.
The survey will be completed and a prize winner randomly selected on the 16th of July 2018. To enter the survey use this link https://bit.ly/2J3XMuW in your search line.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR VEHICLE ACCESS DOORS, OPENERS AND THEIR MAINTENANCE
Developers & Commercial Property Owners, Strata Bodies, Landlords and agents are all duty bound to provide to tenants/occupiers premises which incorporate compliant equipment for consumer safety, to be aware of the maintenance requirements of that equipment, and to act to rectify faults in such equipment. If the door has caused an injury or damage the landlord and agent could be culpable if the door was not maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions or owner’s manual.
A reversing function is a standard feature in a compliant automatic residential or commercial door automation system. Entrapment protection systems (including reversing function) for doors in single residential, apartment residential and commercial buildings are mandated in Standards AS/NZS 60335.2.95 and AS/NZS 60335.2.103.
AGDA recommends annual maintenance checks to ensure all risks are mitigated and the functional requirements of all doors should be assessed by a competent person to ensure the installation and operation complies with the standard.
