Garage Door Safety

Garage door safety is important for a variety of reasons

Garage doors are large and can be dangerous if not opened or closed properly. In addition, many people store hazardous materials in their garages, such as gasoline and other flammable liquids, as well as tools and heavy duty machinery. It’s important to keep these items away from children and to ensure that if the garage door is open, visitors or family members are aware of this potential danger.

Make sure you always use a door safety sensor when in your garage

There are many different products available, but the most affordable option would be the magnetic sensor. The sensor should be installed at least five feet off the ground and five feet from any obstruction. If you have a large garage, it is also a good idea to install a second sensor in case someone walks in front of the door while it is opening.

Another important safety feature to consider is the automatic reverse function. This should be activated anytime there is an obstruction in the path of the door, so if someone is standing beneath it when it is closing they will not be a victim. If a child or pet has somehow gotten trapped beneath the door, this feature can save their life. Once it is activated, the door should automatically open to release whatever was blocking it from closing.

frequently asked questions

The most important thing to keep in mind when determining the safety of your garage door, is to ensure it operates smoothly and properly. If there are any changes in the way that the door opens or closes, then you should contact a professional technician immediately to determine what could be wrong with your garage door system. Additionally, be sure to keep the garage door opener button and the remote control in a safe place where children cannot reach them.
When you close your garage door, it should slowly and smoothly lower down until it is fully closed. If it seems like the door is jerking or slamming shut, there may be a problem with the safety sensors. Additionally, if you notice that the door is not closing all the way, it is possible that the weather stripping along the bottom of the door has worn out and should be replaced.
One of the most important things to look for in a garage door opener is that it returns to the closed position when you press the button. If it doesn’t, then there could be a problem with your garage door opener. Additionally, if you notice any loud noises or jerking when opening or closing your garage door, your opener may need to be serviced.
