Happy 4th of July from Accent Garage Doors. We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate America’s Independence Day with our friends and family. We extend our gratitude to the brave men and women who each day serve our country this 4th of July.
Let’s Talk About Safety
During this holiday season, it’s important to discuss safety. Accent Garage Doors takes safety extremely seriously. We know with the holiday and with summer in full force that can mean more people coming in and out of the house. The garage may be a fun place to be for a kid, but it can be extremely dangerous, hot, and a safety hazard. Please also be careful when lighting fireworks close to the garage door not only to protect your garage door but also for fire safety. If you’re thinking of getting something like a monster flagpole, ensure that it is installed securely to avoid it falling into the garage or home.
Accent Garage Doors owner JP Dillier III said, “In any business the most important thing that can be done is that each day employees return to their families in the same condition that they arrived in.” We take safety extremely seriously. Our skilled employees never cut corners on safety but focus on ensuring that the work performed is done in the highest quality manner.
Safety Measures for Garage Doors
In 1991 the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission officially mandated that automatic residential garage door openers should contain electric eyes or a constant control button which would be mounted on the wall to hold the control button continuously for the door to completely close. Electric eyes identify if something or someone is obstructing the garage door when closing. Garage door eyes are a quick add to a garage door system.
If you have a garage door installed before the earlier 1990s, it may be time to get that updated not only for a fresh look for your home, but also to improve safety. Garage door eyes are extremely important particularly if you have children who visit or live at your home. Garage doors can weigh more than 250 pounds, larger than the average man. Frequently, garage doors are the largest moving part in one’s home.
A quick call to Accent Garage Doors for a safety check can help ensure that your garage door is safe. Also, if you need any changes to ensure and maintain safety for your garage door, we can help.
