When you start shopping for your garage door purchase one that isnt too big and bulky. A large garage opener can take up most of your headroom (the available vertical space of yoru garage) and limit your storage space. It also limits what type of vehicle that can enter and be stored in your garage. For instance SUVs will be incredibly hard to park if you have limited vertical space. Roller garage doors are less complicated to operate than sectional garage doors. They also have smaller and easier to handle panels which greatly reduces the risk of accidents.
Now she knows that something isnt right. As she stands there rubbing her eyes trying to make sense of what was happening a man suddenly emerges from her family room looking at one of her familys DVD covers. At that point the wife begins screaming for her husband "Someone is in the house! Get up! Get up! When the husband ran out of the bedroom he saw the criminal sprinting across the house to the front door. It just so happens that there was a child safety lock on the front door so the home invader stood there struggling with the front door long enough for the husband to retrieve his rifle and grab the man. The police soon came as they held the robber at bay and an arrest was made. It turns out that this burglar was part of a group who had been invading homes in the area.
In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables connectors and pulleys the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition.
They are available as a prefabricated kit or built as a custom design to complement the dacor of any building. Commercial warehouse type installations often dictate higher security requirements. A good choice for this security type of door is the "roll-up" style that resembles a roll top desk type of door. This door can be manufactured with a variety of materials that can be as strong as the adjacent walls making forced entry through this opening very difficult. Other common commercial installations include light weight aluminum single or sectional panel doors. These doors function more for closing off an already secured area than for assuring point security.
