Safe-T-Support’s Commercial Overhead Door Safety Device

Safe-T-Support is a subsidiary of SJK Machine that manufactures commercial overhead door safety devices. Unfortunately, as many as 20,000 people a year suffer injuries from falling or otherwise malfunctioning garage doors. Our Garage Door Safety Arms are designed to prevent injuries at home and at the workplace by stopping garage doors in their tracks. These products are easily installed, convenient, and most importantly, protect you, your employees, and everyone else from unnecessary injury.

Our Story

SJK Machine began in 1998 as a small CNC machine shop in Minerva, Ohio. With just one manual mill and limited tools, we were able to lean on our industry knowledge and determination to slowly grow into a successful business. Over the next few years, we were able to add to our line of machinery, and grew to the point where we were working with a variety of industries to provide all aspects of custom fabrication and machines. Today, we work with many different industries, including Aerospace, the Department of Defense, Automotive, Oil and Gas, Medical, and Electronics, to name a few.

Now, even after 25 years, we continue to look for new opportunities. As we have become increasingly aware of the issue of garage safety both at home and the workplace, we have decided to design our own overhead door safety device, the Garage Door Safety Arm, and thus Safe-T-Support was born.

Our Products

Safe-T-Support’s Garage Door Safety Arm is designed as a safety measure to protect people from falling garage doors. While other safety measures, such as infrared light sensors, are widely used today, they do not offer the same level of protection that our Garage Door Safety Arms offer, as they are not physically able to stop a door from falling. Our overhead door safety devices are designed to literally stop a falling door in its tracks, thus adding additional safety measures to the home or workplace to protect against serious injuries.

We have four options available, including automatic and semi-automatic safety arms with LED lights. Each option comes with two safety arms, one for each side of the garage door, which is mounted to the garage door track using supplied clamps.
