Your Garage Opener Doesn’t Work During Power Outages
Most people assume that garage doors are safe. They assume that if a garage door was closing and a person or animal was in the way, the door would not close. It is true that there are currently safety regulations in place that affect how a company can manufacture doors and the safety features they must include.
However, did you know that these regulations were only put into place in 1993? Before then, garage door companies had no requirements to add an automatic reversal system, which is what we all count on now to stop the door from closing if there is something in its way. If your garage door opener is “ancient” then it may be unsafe as well. Today’s safety mechanisms are incredibly advanced and virtually guarantee no one can get injured.
If your garage is attached to your home then it is essential that your garage door opener is secure. If it is not, and a thief can break into your garage, they can easily break into your home. Generally speaking, if your garage door opener is more than 15 years old then it may be designed with technology that makes it relatively easy to break into.
