You’ve probably thought about how safe your car, your child’s bike helmet, or your babysitter is, but have you thought about how safe your garage door is? According to the annual United States Garage Door Injury Report, the most common garage door injury involves fingers and hands getting caught or pinched between sections, and approximately 20,000 people are injured by garage doors each year.
Consumers pay a premium for safe products, but for practically no additional cost, homeowners can own an Amarr steel garage door designed with the Amarr SafeGuard system to reduce the risk of serious hand and finger injuries. Practically all Amarr steel doors are designed with the Amarr SafeGuard safety system that enhances overall safety for the homeowner.
Below is a chart that shows the low cost of added safety in a garage door as compared to other safe items we purchase:
Read on for four ways the Amarr SafeGuard system gets the job done, from the top of your door to the bottom!
Patented end hinge design. Amarr’s patented end hinges are made from 14-gauge galvanized steel to extend the life of the garage door. With most of the action hidden inside the garage door, our end hinges leave no room for fingers and provide a clean-finished look to the interior of the garage.
Pinch protection sections. Amarr’s pinch protection sections are designed to reduce the risk of serious hand and finger injuries.
Patented center hinges. Amarr’s patented 14-gauge flush mount, inboard designed, center hinges allow Amarr’s finger-friendly, pinch protection sections to operate smoothly and provide a clean-finish interior.
Safety bottom brackets. Amarr’s exclusive tamper-resistant, safety bottom bracket protects homeowners from accidental removal of fasteners that are under tension.
According to a study by GarageWowNow, 71% of homeowners use their garage door as their entry door. It’s sensible to want it to be as safe as possible!
