SAFE BUILDING DESIGN FOR GARAGE DOORS
A garage door is the largest and heaviest moving item in a house and uses highly tensioned springs to make the door move smoothly with minimum effort.
Accidents can happen where failure of a door has inflicted injury to persons or damage to fittings, vehicles or equipment.
2 - Garage Door Opener compliance to regulations
3 - Regular inspection & maintenance is required
Corrosion Resistance of Door Materials
Location of site particularly on coast and at worst with proximity to breaking surf make it essential to comply with regulations.
The standard for vehicular access doors, residential (single and multiple residences) and commercial is AS/NZS 4505:2012 Garage doors and other large access doors and states the following on corrosion resistance.
For Australia, metallic coated steel door products shall be in accordance with the corrosion requirements of Part 3.5.1 Volume Two of the NCC. Other metallic products shall achieve a similar service life.
Any known limitations in performance, such as proximity to a marine environment, or contact with normal building materials should be identified in the design information if these are expected to compromise the reasonable design life of the product.
