They are available as a prefabricated kit, or built as a custom design to complement the dacor of any building. Commercial warehouse type installations often dictate higher security requirements. A good choice for this security type of door is the "roll-up" style that resembles a roll top desk type of door. This door can be manufactured with a variety of materials that can be as strong as the adjacent walls, making forced entry through this opening very difficult. Other common commercial installations include light weight aluminum single or sectional panel doors. These doors function more for closing off an already secured area than for assuring point security.
Automated roller garage doors can add protection and give you an additional sense of security. Furthermore roller garage doors are incredibly easy-to-operate, convenient, and add extra comfort to your home. They make your life a lot easier by eliminating the need for you to get out of your car, walk up the drive way, and manually open your garage door. Assembling and installing your roller garage door is easy and straight forward. The door is housed in a protective box above the opening of the garage. The door moves on a guide and is wound up and down on a shaft. The door rolls up vertically into the protective box. Since your door doesnt open at an angle like most garage doors, it is perfect for homes with a smaller driveway.
In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above, a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end, while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables, connectors and pulleys, the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring, the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition.
Dallas Police Liutenant Barry Payne of the North Central Patrol Division was quoted as saying: "Citizens must realize when they leave a garage door opener in their car in their driveway, it is like leaving a key to their house outside where everyone will know where it is. The solution is simple: Park in the garage, or dont leave a garage door opener in the car in the driveway. I cant say it any clearer than that. Actually, this home invasion could have been avoided in three different ways: the family could have parked their car in the garage, they could have parked outside of the garage, yet removed the garage door opener from the vehicle, OR they could have securely locked the door going from the garage to the home.
