Overhead Door Corporation is committed to the highest standards of product safety. Overhead Door has manufactured garage door openers since 1926 and continues to make product safety a priority.
In the early 1990s, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) enacted into law new rules ensuring that all garage door openers manufactured after 1992 had external entrapment protection devices, such as infrared sensors or sensing edges, in addition to the internal contact reverse mechanism.
When objects pass through the infrared beam, the door automatically stops closing, then reverses.
Garage door openers made prior to 1993 are safe and reliable if installed, tested and maintained properly. However, many of these older units are not equipped with infrared sensors or other external entrapment protection devices, and thus do not meet today’s standard for garage door opener safety.
To ensure the highest degree of safety and customer satisfaction, Overhead Door believes it is important that pre-1993 garage door openers are replaced, as opposed to being repaired.
Therefore, effective July 1, 2013, Overhead Door will stop supporting the repair of all pre-1993 Overhead Door® garage door openers, including technical service support and the sale of replacement parts. We believe this decision will provide homeowners the latest safety technology with the added benefit of more security and convenience features.
