OVERHEAD DOOR CORPORATION KICKS OFF NATIONAL GARAGE DOOR SAFETY SEASON

 DALLAS, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer marks the beginning of Overhead Door Corporation's National Garage Door Safety Season, a program designed to help raise homeowners' awareness about the safe and proper operation of automatic garage door systems. The safety program is especially timely because new federal regulations relating to the safety features on all automatic garage door openers went into effect at the beginning of this year. Overhead Door Corporation's openers now feature an integrated, infrared photocell system that reverses a door's closing motion automatically if an obstruction is detected in the door's path.
 "With children out of school and the increase in family activity around the house, this summer is an excellent time to remind homeowners about garage door safety," said Brian J. Bolton, President and CEO of Overhead Door Corporation. "A garage door can weigh hundreds of pounds and, if not properly maintained or operated, can cause injury or damage to property."
 Overhead Door Corporation recommends a two-step process to ensure automatic garage door systems operate properly and safely. Step One is a simple monthly inspection that homeowners should conduct themselves to test their opener's automatic reverse feature and to be sure that the door is properly balanced. Overhead Door Corporation distributors will instruct homeowners how to perform this inspection. Step Two in maintaining a safe garage door system is a thorough safety inspection of the entire system, which should be performed annually by a professional. Overhead Door Corporation distributors perform a careful, step-by-step safety inspection which is documented with an inspection checklist and safety certification label left with the homeowner.
 To find out if your system is as safe as it could be, contact your local Overhead Door Corporation distributor by calling 800-929-DOOR. Overhead Door Corporation has 400 distributors nationwide which sell, install, and service all of its garage door and opener products.
