Garage door safety tips

29/07/2016

A garage is one of the most prized assets that can come along with a York  home – it is such a versatile area and also adds a lot of aesthetic value to any type of domestic property. Having a good garage door is vital, though, as it robust and secure and, most importantly, safe. So with that in mind, the team here at York Garage Doors thought we’d put together some of the most important safety tips when it comes to handling garage doors. Here they are:

Always be cautious

When a garage door is closing, never try and run underneath it. This is an incredibly dangerous thing to do, and the weight of a garage door is significant so can cause serious damage. This is perhaps more important when you have kids – make sure they aren’t in the vicinity when you are closing your garage door.

Inspect your gears

The springs, cables, rollers and pulleys are all important components of a garage door – it is important that you take the time at least once a month to ensure that they are all functioning correctly.

Don’t leave your door open

Leaving your door open is a heavy safety risk – when the garage door is left open, it is prone to downward travel when reactivated, which means it could hit somebody on the way down.

Unplug when you’re away

If you’re going to be away from your home from an extended period of time, it is wise to unplug your electrically-operated garage door from its power supply. This is to ensure that it is inoperable to potential thieves who may want to take advantage of your extended absence from your home.
