Attached garages are an entryway to the house. You’d be surprised how many times folks go in and out of  garages. From children coming home from school or running errands back and forth from your home in around town. Because of this, a strong and sturdy opener is best. All openers after 1993 now utilize photo sensors to detect anything coming between the garage in the ground as it’s closing. Older models use the mechanical system that automatically goes back up when it touches anything. To make sure you have the highest level of safety, having both of these safety features on your door is vital.
