Garage door safety tips


Bradford Garage Doors are aware that although garage doors are designed to provide a secure door between contents inside and out the garage, if installed incorrectly or damages they can become unsafe.

Below our team of local garage door experts have listed some top tips to ensure the safety of yourself and any family members at all times. These tips should also help if you have a small issue and need a minor garage door repair, preventing further damage and or injury:

Do not let children play with the garage door remotes and make sure the keys are always out of reach of young or small children.

Carry out a visual inspection of the door periodically (at least every 8 weeks). Look at the springs, cables, rollers and door for signs or wear and tear. Please do not attempt to repair it if you are not qualified to do so.

Never leave the garage door part open (if automatically operated) as you will never know if it will go back up or down causing injury.

Never leave the opener in the car and if you have a new app opener, make sure your phone or device has a passcode lock so that if someone steals your device or you lose it, your garage door security is not compromised.

These are just some of the top ways in which you can ensure safety of al possessions and people when using your garage door. There are many others which are specific to each garage door and thus it is important to read the user manual when a new door is installed.
