Marveille Garage Doors July 19th, 2018 - 09:00:36
Dallas Police Liutenant Barry Payne of the North Central Patrol Division was quoted as saying: "Citizens must realize when they leave a garage door opener in their car in their driveway it is like leaving a key to their house outside where everyone will know where it is. The solution is simple: Park in the garage or dont leave a garage door opener in the car in the driveway. I cant say it any clearer than that. Actually this home invasion could have been avoided in three different ways: the family could have parked their car in the garage they could have parked outside of the garage yet removed the garage door opener from the vehicle OR they could have securely locked the door going from the garage to the home.
Saving money by purchasing cheap garage doors really is penny wise and pound foolish as the garage door opening is certainly the weakest point in your homes structure. Thieves routinely target garage doors in their efforts to get into your home. A solid garage door that is tied to your home security system will go a long way to protecting your family and your homes contents. In some cases the security system will email you whenever someone opens or enters your garage. If you have a workshop located in your garage or have a classic care collection then you can be assured that your toys are well protected.
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.
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.
