Online logbook launched for automatic doors

GEZE launches online logbook for automatic doors

  • 7 Oct 2015

GEZE has announced the development of logbooqr, an online logbook for automatic doors which can be accessed via a QR code using a smartphone or tablet.

Since the introduction of EN 16005 in April 2013, all automatic doors must have a logbook to keep a detailed record of any servicing and maintenance work that has been undertaken. 

Currently, an asset tag, detailing a unique reference code, is fitted to the door itself and a physical logbook is issued. This is then completed by service and maintenance engineers as soon as any work is carried out.

Unfortunately, logbooks, that need to be kept with the automatic door, are frequently lost or misplaced.

An online solution

While losing a log book may seem like a small oversight, in the case of an accident, the health and safety investigator may assume that essential maintenance and servicing has not been carried out.

As a formal maintenance record a log book may be called upon in a court of law to prove or disprove liability.

logbooqr has been designed to provide an easy to access and maintain record of an automatic door’s history. An engineer simply scans the QR code and updates the log, creating an accurate record that can be accessed at any time.

The online logbook ensures that information is recorded on a secure website, which can be accessed via a QR code printed on the asset tag. This allows an engineer to record the work that has been done, while the end user can check the log and see when the next service is due. 

In the event of an accident or random spot check, Health and Safety Inspectors can easily access this information to confirm that servicing and maintenance schedules are up to date.
