I recently received a call reporting a problem with an automatic garage door that we had installed. It was
working OK but not closing properly. I investigated the problem and discovered the cause - one component of the
drive system was slightly distorted.
The reason soon became evident - someone had attempted to force the garage
door open - without success! The potential thief was thwarted by the toughness of the garage door.
There was further evidence of a hurried escape on the adjoining fence.
Our client was shocked, to say the least!
A small repair later and her garage door is still functioning as well as ever and still secure. There wasn't
even the need for an insurance claim.
Our automatic doors have special security features to maximise the protection to your belongings.
Imagine replacing everything in your garage. Bikes. Lawn Mower. Garden Tools. Frozen Food.
Family Treasures. Almost certainly several hundreds of pounds worth. Possibly even thousands
This is probably the case even if you don't garage your car.
Have you ever wondered how safe and secure your property is inside your garage? Would you like to find out?
... and, if your garage is integral to your home then any intruder is straight into part of your house.
So how can you avoid the distress and hassle of a break-in?
It is possible to install additional locks onto an insecure garage door, but these are definitely NOT user
friendly. Imagine juggling keys and opening extra locks with rain running down your back! ... And then closing them
again a few moments later. Yuch!
Also, most locks use padlocks of some kind. An inexpensive lock is easily bypassed. An expensive one
just advertises that there is somethoing worth having inside.
But there is another way - with a new and tougher garage door.
Discover where to find a TOUGH garage door
Anecdote : Ring us if you are accidentally locked out of your garage and 9 times out of 10 we can
gain entry for you, very quickly and without damaging the door! ............ Unless it is one that we have just installed.
"Are all garage doors the same?"
Yes and no! Garage doors today are complex machines. The latest designs have, by law, to include advanced
safety devices and guards. A modern garage door will also have protection against potential finger traps.
Also, each canopy-type mechanism has a safety device to prevent the door falling in the event of a cable snapping.
These features are common to all new garage doors, from all manufacturers.
So, how can you tell which is the better door for you?
There is a lot of useful information in the manufacturer's product brochures and specifications. But, like
car brochures, they are not going to tell you the difference between a Honda design and a Ford design, for example.
But, unlike cars, you are unlikely to have the brand awareness to guide you in your selection.
In practice, which ones are more reliable?
Which ones are easier to maintain? What is the availability of spares?
Which ones are TOUGHER and offer best value for money?
"Ask an Installer?"
Ask your local friendly garage door supplier and you will be given an answer to these questions. But, ask
another and the answers will likely be different.
