Garage Door Operator(s)
Garage door operating systems allow you to open your garage door from your car, saving drivers the hassle of stopping the car, getting out and opening the door manually. This is obviously convenient in climates where it rains or snows frequently. Door openers are mechanical systems that are activated by remote controls from the car or a wall-mounted switch in the garage.
Having your garage door operating system correctly installed is extremely important as a free-falling garage door can exert deadly pressure. Garage doors manufactured since 1982 are designed to reverse if they hit an object. However, the system must be properly installed for this feature to work.
Garage openers also need to have a manual release so the door can be opened in the event of a power outage.
