Salt Lake City Garage Doors | Garage Door Safety
Should you be concerned with safety of your car? How about your home? How about garage door safety? The answer to all of these is a resounding yes, but we’re going to go ahead and say that you should especially concern yourself with garage door safety! Why’s that? Because garage door safety has the potential to do some real damage to you. Consider what’s at play here: A massive door that operates along a fixed track, weighing a good amount and moving with such force that it could injure, trap, main, or kill anything and everything within it’s path. While a garage door opener is relatively under powered, a garage door that isn’t carefully maintained can still do a lot of damage.
So how do you concern yourself with garage door safety? Easy. You take care of garage door maintenance regularly, and on top of that, it’s important that you also have your garage door tested regularly.
When we talk about garage door safety tests, we’re talking about the big three:
- Photoelectric eye / sensor system tests
- Force and reverse safety system tests
- Emergency release system tests
If you aren’t keeping up on these three tests, and the associated components that are involved with the systems, your garage door can quickly graduate from harmless door to ruthless killer in no time.
