Awesome Automatic Garage Doors
Automatic garage doors are becoming popular, and more people are planning to install these doors in their garages. Automatic garage doors are motorized garage doors that opens and closes through the use of remote controls and installed switches. Remote controls are often carried in the vehicles that park in the garage. As drivers approach the garage, they press a button on the remote control and a radio frequency signal is sent to open the door. Automatic garage doors keep the driver from having to get out of the vehicle to pull the door open and closed each time. There are multiple installation locations for automatic garage doors, ranging from parking garages to homes. In locations with multiple users, remote controls can be programmed with access codes so that the door is programmed to operate when the appropriate code is entered. From inside the garage, the door can often be opened by pressing a button that is accessible from the driver’s side window.
The automatic garage doors are opened by an electric motor unit that are attached to a metal track. A metal arm is attached to the top of the garage door and moves back and forth on the track when the door is activated. There is an emergency handle and rope attached to a trolley so that the door can be manually opened or closed in an emergency or power outage. All automatic garage doors come with a standard safety system that will stop the door from closing if there is any object in the way and this system is mandatory in all installations. When selecting an automatic garage door opener, there are four important items to consider: drive system, power consumption, motor power and noise.
