Garage Door Safety & Maintenance
A garage door is the largest moving object in the home. It is often operated by electric garage door openers. Proper installation, operation, maintenance and monthly testing of the garage door and electric garage door opener are necessary to provide safe, trouble-free operation. An improperly adjusted garage door or garage door opener can exert deadly force when the door closes. This could lead to serious injury or death from being hit by a closing garage door or from being trapped under the door.
A few simple precautions can protect your family and friends from potential harm. Refer to your garage door and garage door opener owner’s manuals for details specific to the model you own. To learn more helpful safety tips about garage door safety, click on the brochure below.
