Garage Door Safety

By: Apple Door Systems | Jun 21, 2016 | Garage Doors

June is National Garage Door Safety Month. Summer becomes a very busy time for families. With the kids home from school, the garage door gets a lot more use with bikes, sporting equipment and other toys being taken out more often. Other activities such as mowing the lawn and gardening require lawn mowers and other gardening materials to be taken in and out through the garage. Maintenance and safety precautions are very important to keep in mind this time of year.

The springs and cables that assist a garage door receive the most wear and tear. Lubricating and properly adjusting the components of your garage door helps extend the life of your equipment. It also helps keep your family safe from injury, and reduces the possibility of having limited access to your garage. Children should not be allowed to play with garage doors or their openers, and there should always be an adult around when operating a garage door. When operating the garage door, make sure everyone, including pets, are clear of the area.

Proper installation, operation, and maintenance and testing are necessary to provide safe, trouble-free operation. An improperly adjusted garage door or automatic opener can exert deadly force when the door closes. This could lead to serious injury or death from being hit by a closing garage door or from being trapped under the door.
