We don’t just focus on the appearance, durability and security of your garage door, but your safety is also of the utmost importance to us. This is why we’ve adopted and included a whole range of safety measures to ensure your well-being is never compromised.
With many garages now forming an integral part of the home, our remote control options have been designed to make sure you never have to step out the comfort of your car to open or close your garage door. If you prefer manual operation, all Everest garage doors are fitted with special balance springs to ensure effortless manoeuvrability when opening and closing.
With such minimal effort needed on your part, you might not consider the overall weight of your door being a risk to your safety, but when you consider that a steel garage door can weigh hundreds of kilos, you might begin to recognise the dangers. With a manually operated mechanism, the springs at the side of the door ensure it will balance in whatever position it is held in. Even if one spring fails, the door will not drop.
Everest roller garage doors have a curtain that is fully enclosed when open and the springs and side cables are covered with a strong aluminium trim so you never come into contact with them.
Our sectional doors feature panels that fit snugly together and the hinges are covered, so it is almost impossible to trap a finger.
Everest Garage Doors equipped with our electronic operator features also have an automatic safety cut-out that secures the closing edge immediately and stops the door moving if there is an obstruction. For instance, if a person or animal walks underneath whilst the door is closing, it stops and reverses automatically.
