Care & Service

Not only do you want your garage door system to work properly every time you use it, you also want it to be safe to use. After all, the garage door is the largest and heaviest moving object in most homes and can cause serious injury or even death if damaged or misused.

You are the key to Garage Door Safety

Ten things you should know about garage door safety:

  1. The garage door/garage door opener is not a toy.
  2. Children should never operate the garage door, especially if the door is opening or moving.
  3. Remote controls or wall-mounted controls should always be installed out of reach of children.
  4. Never stand or walk under a moving garage door.
  5. When opening or closing a garage door, always keep an eye on the door until it is fully open or closed.
  6. Keep fingers away from the door while it is opening or closing.
  7. Keep your garage door properly maintained for safe operation. Annual maintenance by a trained service technician is recommended.
  8. Garage door openers use electricity which can shock or kill someone if mishandled.
  9. Always get a trained technician to repair or service garage door springs or cables. These are under severe tension and can cause serious injury.
  10. If the door is noisy or you feel unsafe, it is best to have it inspected by a trained technician.
