    February 25, 2015 | Blog

    Safety is the first thing that should be on your mind when shopping for an automated garage door system. Installation of an automated garage door opener systems falls under the auspices of UL-325 and ASTM F2200. UL or Underwriters Laboratories may be familiar to you, but we suspect you are not familiar with the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials. Formed over a century ago, they have kept pace developing standards that have made a variety of products and services better and safer.

    We understand that for most people garage door is their front door in the house. We come in and out of our home through the garage door and some of  motorized garage doors can range from a few hundred to many thousands of pounds. A heavy door bumping into car can cause expensive damage. If it bumps into a person, the result can be deadly. In fact, before the UL 325 gate safety guidelines went into effect in 2000, an average of four people lost their lives every year in garage door accidents!
