This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
In the past the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960s garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time often without any maintenance or inspection the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak.
Automated roller garage doors can add protection and give you an additional sense of security. Furthermore roller garage doors are incredibly easy-to-operate convenient and add extra comfort to your home. They make your life a lot easier by eliminating the need for you to get out of your car walk up the drive way and manually open your garage door. Assembling and installing your roller garage door is easy and straight forward. The door is housed in a protective box above the opening of the garage. The door moves on a guide and is wound up and down on a shaft. The door rolls up vertically into the protective box. Since your door doesnt open at an angle like most garage doors it is perfect for homes with a smaller driveway.
