An automated garage door is no longer a luxury, but a necessity from a security point of view. It is imperative to ensure that the motor of choice is fitted with a safety mechanism, (if an obstacle is encountered i.e. a child, a dog, or your car, the motor automatically stops and reverses, preventing injury or damage to property.)
Always make sure that the installer is well qualified and is employed by a reputable garage door specialist. Adjusting and balancing a garage door to ensure smooth and safe operation is vitally important to the lifespan of the motor, as well as the safety of the household.
