While overhead doors are convenient, most people don’t think about the safety issues surrounding them. You should always use your best judgment when it comes to overhead doors.
Make sure your doors are using a forced feedback system and have infrared monitors (it’s actually federal regulation that they do). Keep the area around the wall buttons well lit and free of clutter so you always have easy access to them.
I’ve spoken to many customers around Dallas that are concerned about security as well, so also make sure that you have a keypad for your door. Keypads can help prevent break-ins and therefore greatly enhance security.
