Garage doors require care and maintenance to ensure a long lifetime of smooth, reliable operation as well as to keep your home safe. AGDA is focused on raising the awareness of safety and product compliance concerns relating to garage doors.
Garage doors are the largest and heaviest moving item in your house with the potential to cause serious harm if neglected. AGDA recommends that safety labels provided by manufacturers be affixed on or adjacent to the door.
We encourage a safety attitude by all door users. Nobody wants children to be hurt so please consider this simple message:
DOORS are heavy – never stand, run or play under or near any garage door, especially when the door is open or moving.
OPENERS are for adults – never play with the button on the wall that opens and closes the garage door.
OUCH! – Never touch any part of a moving garage door. Your fingers and hands can get hurt!
REMOTES are for adults – never play with the remote control in the car or on Mum & Dad’s keyring.
