Safety should be a key consideration when selecting an automatic garage door, as a garage door will be the largest moving item in your house. Doors can vary dramatically in the safety features they include.
Dominator believes the safety of your family and possessions is of the utmost importance. Because cars and other vehicles are used constantly with garage doors, we incorporate some of the most advanced features into our openers to help protect them, including:
- On the Dominator GDO range:
An automatic reverse function so if the door comes into contact with an obstruction on its downward journey it goes back up, or if it comes into contact with an obstruction on its upward journey it automatically stops;
- Other accessories to make your door safer:
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, pet or vehicle, goes under the door while it is closing, the door will stop and reverse, without making contact with the child/pet/vehicle. Dominator recommend the use of safety infra-red beams on all automatic garage doors.
