Workplace safety is a critical component of owning or running a business. Far too often, the amount of care and attention put into implementing safety measures for the workplace, particularly in warehouses or garages, is not up to par. Without crucial overhead door safety devices, your business could be at risk of adding to the 20,000 people who suffer garage door injuries every year. In addition to potential tragic outcomes for your employees, these kinds of incidents can also cost your company financially.

While other safety devices, such as infrared sensors, are widely used today, they are fully dependent on the existing mechanisms in place to raise and lower the garage door. If one of these parts fails, the entire system fails and the infrared sensors alone are incapable of physically stopping the door from falling, thereby making it unable to prevent injury or damage. Safe-T-Support has designed the Garage Door Safety Arm as a measure to physically stop garage doors in their tracks without damage to additional components. Safe-T Support overhead door safety devices can be quickly reset without a delay in functionality or effectiveness.

Safe-T-Support’s Garage Door Safety Arms are easy to install, and with a variety of options to choose from, you’ll be able to find the right option to ensure the highest levels of garage safety and help prevent unnecessary injuries.

How it Works

All of our Garage Door Safety Arms come with supplied clamps that are designed for a standard 2” garage door track and are designed for quick and easy installation. Custom mounting options for overhead door safety devices are available upon request. Safe-T-Support offers multiple options with varying features, and while each option is different, all will prevent a garage door from falling once its operation has failed. The Garage Door Safety Arm easily extends and retracts, and uses indicator lights to ensure the operator that they are in place and operating properly. Other overhead door safety devices can employ methods of stopping a falling door that can result in permanent damage to the door or the track. This leads to costly or difficult repairs and can stop your business from functioning as usual. Installation and setup of our overhead door safety devices are straightforward and provide immediate protection for your company against employee injury and equipment damage providing instant cost-savings and peace of mind.

Employees are the most valuable asset of any business and showing a responsible commitment to their safety and well-being has a direct correlation to improved productivity and morale. A safe and secure workplace results in fewer interruptions and maximized efficiency knowing that employees and equipment are protected in all facets of operation.

Without added overhead door safety devices, an overhead garage door can malfunction and close when it shouldn’t. Often this failure occurs without warning or displaying signs of impending failure. This can lead to serious injuries or even kill someone if they are standing underneath it. With the obvious potential human cost of a falling garage door, businesses also risk expensive damages to equipment, vehicles, and products making overhead door safety devices a comprehensive and financially prudent investment at all overhead door locations.
