SAFETY CHECK

 

Garage door systems are made to operate safely and reliably.  The garage door is the largest moving object in most homes.  The door system just be properly adjusted and regularly maintained in order to function properly.

HERE ARE THE DO’S AND DON”TS

  • VISUAL INSPECTION-Look at the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear.  If you suspect problems, have the system inspected by a trained door systems technician.
  • AVOID A MOVING DOOR AND KEEP HANDS AND FINGERS CLEAR-Do not stand, walk, or run under a moving door.  Hands and fingers must be kept clear from sections, joints, hinges, track, springs, and other door parts.
  • DO NOT LET CHILDREN PLAY WITH TRANSMITTERS OR REMOTE CONTROLS-Garage door operators are not toys.  Keep transmitters and controls out of the reach of children.  Push-button wall controls must be mounted high enough to be out of the reach of children.
  • ONLY OPERATE THE DOOR IF YOU CAN SEE IT-Keep the door in sight until it closes completely.
