Kids and Garage Door Safety


Selecting a safe garage door 


Safety should be a key consideration when you are looking at upgrading your garage door to a new garage door. Our B&D garage doors incorporate some of the most advanced safety features into garage doors and openers however theres a couple of handy points to be wary of when the kids are in the garage. 


It's best to keep the garage door remotes or hand transmitters away from the kids. Another button to push with the wonder of what it might do. If you arent in the garage at the time have you checked to ensure the kids aren't going to walk under the door? Perhaps the ladder-look reinforcing on the back of a panelift looks tempting to a child to climb? We all know that young children like to push buttons open doors and are curious on whats going on in their surroundings.   


Choose the right products to have at home, don't sacrifice safety for cheap prices.


We all know kids like to climbs things but as the largest moving and one of the heaviest moving things in the house please do not let your kids climb, stand on or stand under the garage door in the opening. Please teach your kids not to stand under the door when the door is moving - Take this stress away by getting a set of automatic PE beams - a safety infrared sensor that stops the door when something comes through its moving path. 

Not too long ago one of our staff read a US article about how a young child had grabbed the remote on the car keys, pushed the button for the door to come down and unfortunately there was a dog walking into the garage at the time. Well, you can guess the rest. The dog lived but not all garage doors have got the automatic safety sensors like our B&D openers do. When using our openers, the B&D garage door opener automatically reverses and goes back up.
