Garage Door Tips You Can’t Go Without
Want to have a stronger, more durable, and fully-functional garage door? The tips shared here are intended to help you with this goal. Check them out now and use them in your home.
Check the tracks regularly for dirt
Dirt in the tracks can cause your garage door rollers to get stuck or slow down their movement. The door could also collapse as a result. Cleaning the tracks out will help you avoid potential accidents, which in turn will help keep your door operating smoothly.
Test your photo-electric eyes as well
Even if your garage door's auto-reversal mechanism functions well, it might be worth investing in a garage door opener that uses a pair of safety sensors These units are mounted a few inches above the floor on each side of the door. They send an invisible beam across the threshold, and when that beam gets interrupted by some person or object, the opener is supposed to reverse the door's action. If it doesn't, the sensors could be out of position. Contact our team to get them realigned.
Test your opener's safety reversal system regularly
Every modern garage door opener is required by law to have a built-in reversal system that will prevent it from closing the door on a person. You should test this system once a month or so by placing an object under the door and then ordering it to close. If your door touches the object and then immediately reverses then this feature is working correctly. However, if your door continues to try and close then something is wrong.
