The Benefits of Installing Garage Door Stops

Ensuring the safety of yourself and your employees is a crucial part of running any business. One of the most overlooked aspects of workplace safety is the prevalence of injuries caused by accidentally falling commercial garage doors. These accidents frequently occur without significant warning signs and lead to an estimated 20,000-30,000 injuries every year. While most workplaces have some kind of safety measures in place on existing commercial garage doors, these are often not enough to completely prevent accidents from happening. For this reason, we highly recommend installing Safe-T-Support garage door stops, which are the best option on the market when it comes to stopping robust commercial garage doors in their tracks and preventing injuries to employees as well as damage to equipment or products.


Reasons To Install Garage Door Stops


Installing garage door stops has many advantages, especially in comparison to other options out there and commercial-grade installations. Here are some of the main benefits your business and employees can expect after investing in Safe-T-Support garage door stops:


  • Ensures Employee Safety: Safe-T-Support’s garage door safety arms stop falling doors in their tracks, offering the best injury prevention. Many other readily available solutions, such as infrared lights, offer some level of protection, but cannot physically stop a door from falling once it is in motion. Our garage door stops offer you and your employees the best protection available from falling commercial garage doors.


  • Easy to Use and Saves Money: Our garage door stops are easily installed and set up on commercial doors. Additionally, even once they are deployed, they can be easily set up again without impacting performance. Other products on the market utilize other methods of stopping a falling door that may cause permanent damage to the door or track, making them costly and difficult to reinstall after use.


  • Protects Your Company: The last thing you want to deal with in the wake of a workplace accident or tragedy is the ensuing legal repercussions. Ensuring you have the best protection for your workers prevents you from having to deal with the headaches and costs associated with the fallout of a workplace accident.
