Excellent ideas on how to keep the garage door safe and avoid problem and injuries.
Garage door balancing
According to our experts, you should aim for at least one balance test every thirty days or so. For an automated system you should close the door and then disengage the opener. Use the manual lifting device and ensure that it is smooth. Any resistance may be a sign of poor balance which needs addressing urgently.
Managing the reversing mechanism
Ensure that the mechanism for reversing the garage door works as required because it could cause a serious accident otherwise. This is a minimum requirement following changes in the law on the 1st of January 1999. Check both the edge sensor and the photo eye because they are the tools for preventing from something getting trapped.
