Safety, Safety, Safety!


75% of garage door accidents involved two types of injuries:

- Doors falling on people

- Body parts getting caught in a door panel.

So to keep your family, pets, car, and home safe from hazards, follow the garage door safety tips below:

  1. Make sure that garage door remote controls are out of the reach of children.
  2. If the garage door is moving, do not stand in or walk through its path. Set a good example for your children in this regard.
  3. Inspect your door and fittings monthly for parts that may be broken or worn.
  4. When opening the door, avoid placing your fingers in between the door’s joints.
  5. Learn how to operate the door’s emergency release feature and make sure that it is close by at all times.
  6. If the garage door opener does not reverse when an object interrupts its sensor path, have this repaired by a technician immediately. Children could easily be trapped and seriously harmed by malfunctioning doors.
  7. If you keep your door opener remote control in your car, never leave any connecting door between the garage and your home unlocked. Thieves or home invaders could steal your remote from the car and access your house through the garage.

    1. You are going to need to repaint them on a relatively frequent basis in order to keep the wood from drying or at the opposite end of the scale rotting from spending too much time getting wet. Wood tends to warp as it ages and this can affect how well your garage doors are going to stay working over their lifetime.Garage Door at tradegaragedoors.co.uk

  25. Another big thing that people might not understand is the problem of doors not being properly balanced. If a door isn't balanced properly then the 'Force' of the opener is probably turned up too high and it won't stop if it comes down on anything or anyone.

  52. I definitely agree that many garage door injuries come from limbs being stuck in the door. I've broken a finger in a garage door before, when I was trying to fix it. I lost that fingernail as well and ended up replacing the door entirely.

  63. I have seen a garage door fall on a person before and it is not a funny sight. When I was younger, we would play the game where we would hit the garage door key to make the door automatically close and then run out before it closed completely. My friend tried doing that alone and the motor burned out allowing the door to fall on top of him. Luckily he wasn't under it for very long, but it could have been really dangerous. It is good to get the garage doors repaired so accidents like that don't happen.

  64. These are some really great safety tips, and strangely enough, a lot of people still get injured by their garage door. I think that those sensors are such a great idea to keep children or animals from getting shut under the door. I agree that if your sensor isn't working, you should definitely see a technician immediately. We always make sure that the automatic opener is too high for any of our kids to reach as well. http://www.gregjamesgaragedoors.com.au

  69. You made some really great points throughout your article! Especially when you mentioned it'd be best to keep the garage door openers away from children. I remember growing up, that I would constantly try and run through the garage door, before it would close! However, now that I'm older I realize that it wasn't the best decision. I'll have to put my garage openers someplace that my kids can't get them from. http://www.allamerican-garagedoor.com
