The problem that may be considered the poison of a garage door is the safety issue that it poses. How a garage door opener simply operates, for example. Garage door openers are not "smart" and might keep on moving the door even though someone or something is being compressed by the closing door. Of course this is a very undesirable situation. Because of this, something that is now called safety eyes is becoming more and more common. Safety eyes are devices that are responsible for making sure that there is nothing in the way of a closing door. This way, accidents are averted, which could have even been fatal.
There are other safety problems too, which are just as dangerous. The doors that are raised and positioned near the roof could unexpectedly slip and fall, breaking whatever is below them. In the case of the spring and torsion garage doors this is more probable. The door may be on its way up when the spring gives in, hence the door falls. Garage door service should be done every once in a while so that something as tragic as this never happens.
As said before, a thing might be both the cure for a poison, and a poison itself. When dealing with overhead doors, it must be kept in mind that a small mistake can have major consequences. When dealing with garage doors, safety eyes must be taken care of. An alternative to having to use a system such as the safety eyes, is installing something that may detect if something is being compressed by the door. Also checking the overhead door springs for any signs of damage can help to avoid a situation in which the door falls unexpectedly. Basically keeping a door nice and tidy will avert any undesirable and sad situations.
