However, less than half of the units that they tested was able to detect a child-sized mannequin. That is why they have concluded that automatic garage door openers posed a great risk for children. To act on these alarming data, the government has made it mandatory for garage door manufacturing companies to provide a quick release mechanism on the garage door trolley so that the door could be disconnected from the garage door opener in case there is an entrapment. They are also required by law to include in their features a secondary safety reversing system that is placed near the floor. This could be in the form of photoelectric eyes, sensors, or electric safety edges. The government seeks strict compliance regarding this law to keep our children safe from injury and possible death.
For those who already have garage door openers installed, it is very important to have them inspected regularly to determine if they are in excellent working condition and are therefore safe to use. We do not want to compromise the safety of our families at any given time. When our family’s safety is at stake, a simple inspection is not enough. It has to be done by a professional to ensure that all things are taken into consideration and looked into. We cannot take this lightly.
