Garage Door Openers - Is Yours Safe?
June 29, 2017
We take them for granted, but garage doors and automatic openers pose a serious safety threat to persons and property if not installed properly. I don’t know of anyone who ever checked their door and opener for proper operation. When I inspect a garage door, I run through a modified version of the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA) technical data sheet giving instructions on how to conduct a comprehensive 10-point inspection of your overhead garage door and garage door opener, which can be downloaded at http://www.dasma.com/pdf/publications/techdatasheets/commercialresidential/tds167.pdf.
