A garage door opener is becoming so popular these days that I could rarely see any garage door without it. However, since it is a heavy mechanical device, and if not installed properly, combined with a 400 pounds garage door, it can hurt you severely!
Most of us do not like to be instructed, but please read the whole article carefully – it is for your benefit only, especially if your garage door opener has been put up by someone else, you aren’t sure that it has been installed properly or it is old.
Now you can have garage doors just the way you want with the help of Ziegler Custom Garage Doors.
An Electric Eye
The two photoelectric sensors that are installed on both sides of the garage door track should certainly not be installed higher than 4- 6 inches from the floor of the garage.
This ensures that a small child cannot come under the invisible beam of the sensor.
The door should stop and get reversed whenever the light beam is broken during the closing of the door.
A door edge sensor
A door edge sensor is usually used on elevator doors, but it can also be used in residential garage door openers. It’s a like a strip which is installed along the end edge of the garage door. Whenever there is an obstruction below the doors, it should stop and reverse the door.
