What is on Garage Door Warning Labels?

Your garage door is a heavy piece of equipment which requires certain measures to keep your family safe. When the technicians here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Dayton come out for a safety inspection on your garage door, they will make sure these warning labels are up to date. It is important that you are aware of the dangers of your equipment.

Where Should Garage Door Warning Labels Appear?

There are several places that the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association International (DASMA) has mandated labels be placed. You should have these labels:

Garage Door Safety Label

This label gives you the information you need to stay safe when operating the door. It is placed on the back of the door at eye level so it is easy to read. It gives these instructions:

  • Only professionals should make garage door repairs
  • You should visually inspect your hardware and parts on a regular basis
  • Don’t open the door if the spring is broken
  • Test the safety features on your garage door every month
  • Do not walk under a moving door or stand near it when it is in operation.
  • Never let young children operate the door
  • Do not remove the label
  • A moving door can lead to death or serious injury

Bottom Bracket Safety Label

This warning information should be on the bottom bracket of your door. It should give you these warnings:

  • Use caution because the bottom bracket is under extreme tension
  • Don’t remove, repair, or adjust parts of the brackets that are attached to springs or cables
  • Only have trained professionals make repairs
  • Don’t remove the label or paint over it
  • Replace the label if it gets damaged

Spring Safety Label

Garage door springs are very dangerous to homeowners. Since they are a part that is under tension, when the tension breaks, it can cause serious damage to you or your property. The label warns:

  • Spring tension can lead to death or serious injury
  • Don’t repair parts, remove, or adjust them if they are attached to the spring; this includes wood blocks, red-colored fasteners, steel brackets, and cables
  • Only let a professional make repairs to these parts
  • Replace the label if it is damaged or painted over

Use a Professional For Repairs

As you can see, the warning labels all state that using a professional for repairs is important to your safety. We recommend that you call us if something is broken or damaged. Our trained technicians will make the repair for you right away.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
