Can Automatic Doors Be Opened Manually In An Emergency?

Overhead garage doors are not only an entry point and an aesthetic element on the exterior of our house. They are often the only access point and the most important security barrier in any home. For this reason, families usually install motors with which to automate its function, which are safe, and comfortable and allow a fluid and stable opening and closing of the door.

In the market, we can find a wide range of systems for automatic doors for private or commercial use, which are based on tilting, sliding, and sectional movements, among others.

In addition, they are used as shutters in shops, in corporate or residential car parks, and in restricted areas. But despite their differences, they all have in common a completely mechanical operation. They need an electrical power supply that allows them to operate.

What to do in the event of a power outage?

The automatic garage door system allows us to open the door in the event of a power outage or the opener doesn’t work. This is because manufacturers understand that power outages are unpredictable. Being able to open it will depend on the state of the mechanism, since, if proper maintenance of its parts is not carried out, the garage door will not open no matter how much force is applied to it. Therefore, it is important to always be prepared and carry out the necessary preventive and corrective actions.

When purchasing your overhead garage doors, ask your service provider about these emergency motor openers. It’s better to pay a little more, but make sure you can get into the garage in all circumstances, than not having it and spending several hours without your car until service is restored.
