Child Safety

Safety should be a key consideration when selecting a garage door or opener, as a garage door will be the largest moving item in your house and failures can cause serious injury. Doors can vary dramatically in the safety features they include.

Dominator believes the safety of your family and possessions is of the utmost importance, so we incorporate some of the most advanced safety features into our garage doors and openers.

Accessories to make your garage door safer for your family

As an optional extra, safety infra-red beams can be fitted to openers, so the door will automatically stop and reverse if the beam is broken whilst the door is closing. This means if a child, or pet, runs under the garage door while it is closing, the door will stop and reverse, without making contact with the child/pet. Dominator recommends the use of safety infra-red beams on all automatic garage doors.

When it comes to worrying about your children losing house keys or a garage door transmitter, then help is at hand. Simply install a Dominator Entry Keypad to your automatic garage door. This allows entry to the garage without a remote control transmitter. This is ideal for kids as they can enter the house with their pin number. It's also really convenient if you go out for a run, or to walk the dog as there's no need to carry a set of keys.
