We are a Living Wage Employer

We are thrilled to announce that Door Care and Security Ltd have been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our commitment to the Real Living Wage will see everyone working at Door Care and Security receive a minimum hourly wage of at least £10.90, higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £10.42 per hour.

Door Care and Security are based in the North West, where 12.5% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage – around 367,000 jobs.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 450,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

“The Covid 19 pandemic really opened our eyes to ensuring that all of our staff were financially supported during extremely challenging trading conditions. Since then we have eradicated the use of zero hour contracts across the business and I’m delighted to announce our accreditation with the Living Wage Foundation. We passionately believe that a hard day’s work should be rewarded with a fair day’s wage with every employee of Door Care and Security now receiving rates of pay over and above the Real Living Wage.”

Ian Evans – Operations Manager

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Door Care and Security has joined the movement of over 12,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Door Care and Security, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”

Door Care & Security now accredited by Constructionline

We are very pleased to announce that Door Care & Security Ltd have been accredited by Constructionline and now hold Silver Membership.

We consider Health & Safety first and foremost during every single installation, repair, or preventative maintenance service carried out by our comprehensively trained, fully vetted, and highly qualified field engineers

This award from Constructionline, joins accreditation’s previously awarded to Door Care & Security from CHAS and Altius.

Why is regular preventative maintenance for your automated doors so important?

In the same way that your car or your central heating boiler needs a regular service to keep them running smoothly while reducing the risk of sudden breakdowns, all automated doors, gates, barriers and shutters require exactly the same attention with a preventative maintenance service taking place at least once every year.

Due to their overall levels of reliability, it’s easy to become lulled into a false sense of security but what would be the impact upon your business if, without warning, the main entrance to your premises malfunctioned and prevented access either into, or out of the building (or even both!!)?

It could even lead to legal action being taken if anybody was to become hurt or seriously injured as a result!

Along with mitigating the risk of sudden breakdown, there are a number of very important safety features that require serious consideration.

What should be checked during a preventative maintenance visit?


Preventative maintenance

  • Are all of the safety sensors working properly?
  • Will the door cease to open or close if it’s obstructed?
  • Is the force and speed that the door is opening set to the correct levels for the application?
  • Is there enough guarding in place to prevent fingers becoming trapped?

Regulations currently in place across the UK stipulate that employers and building managers have a duty to protect both workers and visitors against injury by ensuring that their buildings are “fit for purpose”.

To demonstrate compliance and prevent the risk of invalid property insurance, all automated doors, roller shutters, gates and barriers should receive a Preventative Maintenance service at least once annually.

Again, like your car or boiler, a well maintained, regularly serviced set of automated doors, gates, barriers or shutters are less likely to suddenly fail and remain in service for longer.

Achieve peace of mind with preventative maintenance from Door Care & Security
