Automatic Garage Door Safety

Garage door safety in South Africa hinges on several key factors.

Firstly the stability of the motor and the ability for the motor to lift or open the garage door. Seems silly but an incorrectly selected motor will fail in a short time and may cause damage to people / property caught under the door in the case of a failure.

As most people use their garages as entrance areas to the rest of their house the concern with a cheap motor is the ability of a criminal to simply force the door up overcoming  electric motor or to scan and replicate the remote signal as the door is activated.

Types of Garage Door Motors

  • Sectional electric garage door motor (Door runs on tracks but folds on horizontal segments)
