Safety should be a key consideration when selecting a garage door or opener, as a garage door will be the largest moving item in your house and failures can cause serious injury. Doors can vary dramatically in the safety features they include.
Dominator believes the safety of your family and possessions is of the utmost importance, so we incorporate some of the most advanced safety features into our doors and openers, including:
Accessories to make your door safer for your family:
- As an optional extra, safety infra-red beams can be fitted to openers, so the door will automatically stop and reverse, if the beam is broken whilst the door is closing. This means if a child, or pet, runs under the door while it is closing - as happens so often - the door will stop and reverse, without making contact with the child/pet. Dominator recommend the use of safety infra-red beams on all automatic garage doors.
- No need to worry about giving the kids a key to the house or a garage door opener transmitter. There's nothing worse than one of these being lost at school! Install a Dominator Entry Keypad to your automatic garage door. This allows entry to the garage without a remote control transmitter. Great for children, as they can enter the house with their pin number. Also ideal if you go out for a run, or to walk the dog, no need to carry a set of keys.
