Garage doors, the largest moving object in most homes, were responsible for more than 13,000 injuries in 2007, according to US Consumer Product Safety Commission and National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, this month Quality Overhead Door is working to increase awareness of possible hazards of garage doors and automatic opener systems.
Quality Overhead Door, a family owned and operated professional garage door business, has been servicing Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan for 30 years. In that time, Consumer Production Safety Commission passed laws making garage doors safer – most notably, in 1993 the commission mandated that all garage door openers installed have an auto reversing feature and safety sensors that cause the door to reverse if the door meets an obstruction. Quality Overhead Door offers an extensive variety of high quality garage doors to help promote the highest safety standards.
A properly working and maintained garage door not only promotes functionality, if properly installed and operated, a garage door should provide many years of safe operation. Quality Overhead Door carries all models of Clopay Doors, as well as Liftmaster garage door openers. Plus, they service all makes and models.
