Garage Safety Arms: What to Look for & How to Choose

Garage door safety is a crucial part of workplace safety. Unfortunately, this is something that is often overlooked, leading to an estimated 20,000-30,000 injuries every year. Most workplaces take basic safety precautions and have safety standards in place, but it’s likely necessary that you’ll need more than that to ensure safety in the workplace. There are a variety of tools and products available to prevent accidents and make garage doors safer, but differentiating between them and choosing the right one can be difficult. What qualities and features should you look for when investing in garage door safety?

Safety Arm Features to Look For

While many products, such as infrared sensors, are available and do improve overall safety, we recommend going with a more reliable option. Infrared sensors do provide some accident prevention, but do not have the ability to physically stop a falling garage door. This is why we’d recommend a garage door safety arm, which is specifically designed to stop a malfunctioning door in its tracks. The ideal safety measure to look for is one that is the most reliable option to prevent a door from falling. Additionally, it should be able to do so in a way that is efficient and cost-effective, meaning that it won’t damage the door or the tracks, and can be easily reset after deployment.
