Garage Door Safety & Maintenance

Diamond Door would like to educate their customers about how important it is to properly maintain your garage door and how to use it safely. The garage door is the largest moving object on your home and not properly cared for can cause serious injuries. In many homes garage doors are used as an entrance door to go in and out of.

You should have your garage door inspected by a trained technician. There are a few things you can do to see if your door needs to be seen by a garage door technician. Visually look at all parts on your door, springs, hinges, rollers, pulleys, and wear and tear on cables. Also look at your tracks on the door. If you suspect anything is wrong with these parts call Diamond Door Systems so we can come out and inspect the door for you.If you have a garage door opener that’s electrically opens your door keep all devices out of reach of children to ensure they will not be able to play around with these devices. Also make sure your garage door opener has all the safety features required by law. .For instance all garage door openers should have what is known as photo electric eyes safety beams, which are mounted 6 inches off the floor and send an invisible beam across the door path.

This beam if something goes across it will make the door reverse and not come down. It is also important to speak with your family members about how this mechanism works. Just remember any questions please contact Diamond Door Systems for all your needs.
