A Safer Garage with New Zealand-Made Garage Doors

A Safer Garage with New Zealand-Made Garage Doors

A garage door has number of roles to perform, and given that it is most likely the largest moving part of your home, safety around the door is a high priority. Here’s how to get a safer garage door with Garador.

Safety while the Garage Door is in Operation

Safety Infra-Red Beam

This one is a top safety precaution, especially important in households where young children or pets are present. A safety infra-red beam can be fitted to your garage door and opener. It runs across the opening so that if the beam is broken while the door is closing, the opener will stop and reverse the garage door without making contact. The safety infra-red beam is an optional extra fitted to your garage door and operated through the automatic garage door opener.
Garador recommends the use of safety infra-red beams on ALL automatic garage doors. 

Intelligent Sensitivity System (ISS)

A standard safety function of our tilt/sectional garage door openers to minimise the risk of damage to people, pets and property. The Intelligent Sensitivity System detects obstructions and operates accordingly. If the door comes into contact with anything on its downward journey it will stop and reverse. If an obstruction occurs on the upward journey, the door will stop in its tracks. 

Safety while the Garage Door is Closed


Standard with all of our openers, Garador’s™ Tri-Tran+™ multi frequency technology means your opener will never have interference from household wireless products such as baby monitors and wireless entertainment systems. So when you want your garage door to open, it will.

Tri-Tran+™ transmitters also use code hopping technology to generate a new random code from over 4.29 billion possibilities with each use. This means that burglars using code grabbing devices will not be able to grab your code, as it changes every time!

Rechargeable Battery Backup

If you live in a rural area where power blackouts are common, battery backup is a great idea. The garage door will still be operational even when the power is out. Rechargeable Battery Backup is an optional extra for your garage door opener.

Emergency Key release

Allows your garage door to be disengaged and operated manually from outside when there is no other garage access available. Emergency key release is an optional extra for your garage door opener.

Safer Access to the Garage

Entry Keypad

Do you have older children who need their own access to the home? How many times have they lost or left behind keys? A Garador entry keypad can be the solution to that problem, giving them the safety of access to the home via a pin number whenever they need it, and giving you the peace of mind that they need never be locked out. It’s also ideal for times when you want to leave the house without having to carry keys.
An entry keypad is an optional extra for your garage door opener.
