4 Step For Optimizing Your Garage Door Performance

Jun 24th 2015 at 5:10 AM



The following are steps you should take to optimize your garage door performance:

a) Key less openers- You should make sure that your garage door opener is key less. This simply means that in order for your garage door to optimize its security performance, it should have a digital opener. This involves a keypad which is mounted on the side of the garage door. The keypad should also have a rolling code feature. This is a feature which allows your code to change every time the unit is used. Your garage door will perform its security role to its level best after this.

b) Door chains- Everyone wants a garage door that makes minimal noise while it is being opened and closed. For you to achieve this, you need to get rid of that chain that rolls while you open the door. This chain which resembles that of a bicycle is the cause of that annoying sound. Modern day garage door openers have belts or screws installed instead of chains so that minimal or no noise is made in the process of opening or closing the door.

c) Safety reversing mechanism- It is ironical when your car is damaged by the garage door since the door is supposed to protect it from being damaged. This is easily avoidable by getting a garage door opener with a safety reverse mechanism which automatically reverses the door when an object is passing under it. This mostly happens when someone presses the close button while your car is half way through.

a) Battery durability - You should make sure that your garage door remote has a long lasting battery because it is very easy to forget to buy new batteries. There are also remotes that are available in the market today with a sleep mode which helps you conserve your battery. They also have motion detection lighting which helps you to find the right button when it is dark. This also preserves battery life as you won’t have to press many buttons before finding the right one.

b) Size and Durability- You should get a small garage door remote which is easy to handle. It should also have a durable material, preferably leather. This prevents the remote from breaking in case it falls or someone sits on it.

3. PAY ATTENTION TO GARAGE DOOR SERVICES - Garage doors need constant services for optimum performance. They should be greased often. Make sure that your garage door is serviced by an expert. This way, you will be certain that all major parts have been checked and hence working properly.

4. INSTALL ROLL UP DOORS - The work of your garage is to provide a safe space for your car/cars. This is often hindered when your garage door takes most of the space in the garage. Most old doors open inwards hence occupying a lot of space. To change this, you should install a garage door that rolls up to open. This optimizes your garage door performance as it takes less space and reduces the risk of having your car scratched by the door while opening or closing it.
