Top 10 safety and security tips for your garage door

                               describe the image


We at Overhead Door Company of Daytona Beach are always trying to raise homeowner awareness of Garage Door Safety and keeping homeowners safe all year long.
The garage door is often the largest entry point into the home, and it is important for consumers to keep garage doors and automatic opener systems in proper working condition.

Top 10 safety and security tips to ensure protection throughout the year:
1. Make sure the garage door opener control button is out of the reach of small children. It should be mounted at least 5’ from the floor.
                         
2. Do not let children play with garage door remote controls. This could cause the door to inadvertently close on your vehicle, a person, or a pet.
                         
3. Never place fingers between door sections. Explain the dangers to children and consider pinch-resistant door panels.
                                                                                                                                                   
 4. Consult the owner’s manual and learn how to use the garage door’s emergency release feature. This will allow you to open or close your door manually in the event of a power outage or if your garage door opener fails.
                         
5. Visually inspect the garage door each month. Look at springs, cables, rollers and pulleys for signs of wear. Do not attempt to remove, adjust or repair these parts or anything attached to them. These parts are under high tension, and should only be fixed by a trained door technician.
                         
6. Test the garage door opener’s reversing mechanism monthly by placing a 2x4 board laid flat in the door’s path. If the door does not reverse after contacting the object, call a qualified garage door professional for repair. If the opener has not been replaced since 1993, we recommend replacing the garage door opener with a new one that has safety beams and auto-reverse as a standard feature.
                         
7. While on vacation, unplug the garage door opener unit or use a wall vacation lock console security switch, which renders remotes unusable and is an optional accessory to most openers.
                         
8. Do not leave the garage door partially open. When activated again, it may travel downward and come in contact with an object in its path. This also compromises a home’s security.
                         
9. If the opener does not have rolling-code technology, be sure to change the manufacturer’s standard access codes on the opener and remote control, or consider investing in a newer model with rolling-code technology which changes the access codes each time the opener is used.
                         
10. Never leave the remote control in the car when given to a parking attendant. A stolen remote leaves you more susceptible to home invasion. Always lock your car when left unattended. It’s a small inconvenience for safety and security.
 If you don't feel comfortable testing or inspecting your garage door or opener, contact the professionals at The Overhead Door Company of Daytona Beach and schedule a service call today.

  3. My wall mounted garage door opener isn't working properly. I have had it for five years and it has worked fine until the other day. I have a remote opener that works fine. Does the wiring often decay over time in the wall mounted opener buttons?

  4. Making sure your kids can't reach the garage door opener is good advice. Although kids are pretty smart, so if they really wanted to reach it, they could just get a box. I played with the garage door when I was little, and we are lucky that none of us got hurt, or broke the garage. Especially because we would hang on it as it went up. http://www.allkinddoorservices.com/commercial_services.html

  5. I really like your advice to read the manual. That can really benefit you. I think that a lot of people just get a new garage door and don't realize the necessity of reading the manual. They just throw it to the side and figure that they can learn through trial and error. However, you can avoid the error if you just read the manual. http://www.kellysgaragedoors.com/services
