Safety sensors keep your family, pets, and property safe from harm when an automatic garage door is closing or opening. They detect anything in the path of a moving door and reverse its direction before it gets tangled up or hits something.
They’re an important part of any new garage door opener installation. However, they can be tricky to install.
Wiring safety reversing sensors correctly begins with identifying the type of terminal on your motor unit. Some models have quick connect plug-ins or screw terminals, while others have pre-existing wires to choose from.
Once you’ve located the sensor wiring, strip 7/16 inch of insulation from each of the two wires (one white and one white with black stripes). Twist them together to secure to the terminals on the motor head.
Battery backup is an excellent way to ensure that you can open and close your garage door even when the power goes out. This is particularly important during winter when heavy snowfall can knock out the electricity for a long period of time.
The Overhead Door(tm) Battery Backup is a small but powerful accessory that can be easily installed on any of the brand’s top-of-the-line openers. It features an 8-AMP, sealed lead acid battery from Interstate Batteries that reaches a full charge within 48 hours.
The Battery Backup is available in several mounting options for homeowners or Overhead Door Distributors to choose from, and is designed to be an unobtrusive addition. It’s powered and charged through a connector cable that runs between the opener and the unit, which eliminates the need to plug it into an outlet. It also has front-facing LEDs that indicate the status of the battery. It’s a good idea to check the battery’s charge from time to time to prevent any future issues.
Torsion garage door springs are a critical component of the garage door opener. They store energy in the spring’s coils, then release it when the door opens and closes.
They are available in various lengths and sizes to fit all types of doors. Precision technicians only use the right size of springs for each door’s weight and install them according to a balance test.
There are two main types of garage door springs: extension and torsion. Typically, extension springs are found on residential doors and torsion garage door springs are only used on commercial or industrial garage doors.
Extension springs are relatively easy to replace for a DIYer with some basic knowledge of the door. However, the risks involved during replacement include falling garage doors, activated openers during the process, and minor cuts from rusted or old metal.
