June is Garage Door Safety Month, and it’s your chance to reach out to your customers and community to help them understand the importance of maintaining a safe and dependable door system.
Those of us in the overhead door and access systems industry live and breathe our products, and may sometimes forget that our customers don’t often give their garage doors a thought – unless something goes wrong. Many are unaware that neglected garage doors can pose a hazard to a home’s occupants, pets or visitors.
Garage Door Safety Month is your opportunity to serve your community by sharing important safety information about garage doors.
June 2018 is a special Garage Door Safety Month as IDA unveils two brand new ways to teach your friends, family and customers about the necessity for garage doors safety.
In whatever activity you chose to do, be sure to emphasize that children are at the highest risk. Garage doors should never be used for play, and properly functioning photo eyes, located no higher than 6-inches from the floor, should be installed on all garage door systems.
Additionally, IDA would like to remind all industry members about GarageDoorCare.com a non-commercial website dedicated to helping homeowners understand how garage doors work, which provides a video covering garage door safety topics. The video covers what homeowners can do themselves to keep their door in good working order, such as semi-annual lubrication. It also points out the areas best left to the pros, and directs consumers to GarageDoorCare.com to find a garage door service professional before a problem occurs!
Being a good citizen is good business! Make sure your company is seen as having safety as your highest priority.
