What Kids Need to Know About Garage Door Safety?

Your garage door serves as a massive entry point to your home. At the same time, it can be the most dangerous moving object for your loved ones, especially the kids. Children are naturally curious and may want to experiment with the fascinating science behind the movement of garage door systems.

Therefore, it’s vital to teach kids how to play safe around this massive structure to ensure their safety, either you’re away or aren’t watching.

Also, note that the efficiency of your garage door is paramount. Therefore, always ensure your garage door is in a perfect and safe condition. Once you notice anything unusual, let a professional look into the issue.

A specialist from Bob's Advance Garage Doors will be happy to visit you at home for prompt fixing, repairs, fixes as well as periodic maintenance. Call or contact us today for professional and reliable garage door services.

Below are some safety measures for kids regarding your garage door system.

Show Them the Rules

Children are naturally curious, fascinated by many things, and love to experiment with moving objects in which your garage door isn’t an exception. Therefore, it’s reasonable to show them how certain mechanisms of the garage door works. Use this opportunity to teach them the dos and don’ts. Also, tell them the risks of door mishandling and be open to their questions.

For example, the lifting cables, emergency release cords, door spring system, and the emergency sensor system are a couple of areas children must avoid. For instance, the lifting cables located near the bottom on each side of the door operate under extreme tension; therefore, children must stay away.

Safeguard Your Entry Access

If you use exterior keypad access, tell kids to protect the codes and avoid showing their friends. If possible, install the door access panel a couple of feet above the ground level to prevent unfettered access by the little ones. You can also let the older ones manage the movement and activities of the younger ones for more safety.

Getting In and Out

Kids mustn’t race or walk under a descending garage door. They must wait for the door to open fully before passing through. Similarly, they should never climb the reinforcement struts found in double garage doors as it may seem like a ladder to them.

The Auto Reverse Feature

The photoelectric reversal system stops a descending door and automatically reverse when something gets in its way. This is a safety feature that can prevent kids from getting hit in case they accidentally come in contact. If you notice any glitch in the auto reverse system, don’t stall before you contact a professional for prompt repair or replacements.
