When we notice our garage doors, we generally only give a passing thought to their danger. For us, they are only a portal for going in and out of the house, or for keeping our things behind. When they're not moving, there's almost no threat. It tends to be when they're moving that garage doors, notably the ones attached to classic openers, can have risks we hadn't thought of.

When it comes to automatic garage door openers, there are a wealth of safety options to pick from.

A great feature found on most garage door openers is the auto-reverse function. This has the benefit of automatically reversing the door if it senses any obstruction like a car, or your child. Not only does it protect property from crushing damage, but it protects your family in case of the unexpected. If you're unsure if your garage door has this element, you can test it by placing an obstruction like a stiff pillow or a roll of paper towels in the path of the closing door. The door should reverse when it hits the obstruction. Otherwise, have the opener checked immediately, and if necessary, fixed.

If your garage door's opener was built in the last 15 years, it's likely that it includes infra-red or photo-electric eyes to detect movement of people and pets if the door is closing. This means that it shouldn't need to run into something before reversing, making it a smart investment.

There are also pinch proof garage door designs that won't pinch your fingers if you catch them between the panels while closing the door. Your fingers will appreciate it if you have one of these types on your house.

The majority of garage doors have long springs to help them open and close. The springs are basically a weighted pully system, reducing the weight of the door though spring force. Due to the weight of the door, this means these same springs have a lot of energy in them. It's safer if you don't work on these unless unless you've got experience with garage door springs. If a spring snaps, or releases it's energy all at once, it could cause injury to you.

If you've ever wondered what to do if the power goes out, most garage door openers have a red emergency pull cord. What this does is separate the opener from the door, allowing you to open the door even when experiencing a total power outage. Make sure the cord will be a minimum of 5 feet off the ground to keep kids from pulling it.

Another great feature of current garage door openers is the wireless coded keypad. This is above and beyond the standard wireless opener by requiring a security code for operation. That way it's nearly impossible for someone to drive by and open your door with their remote. These are especially useful if you find yourself locked out of your home.

No matter which safety features you have, it's recommended you test your opener and all safety features every month, for maximum safety for you and your family. This will ensure you can take care of any issues immediately so nobody gets hurt.
