Halette Garage Doors October 24th, 2017 - 01:38:54
In contrast to an overhead type of garage door, be it sectional or single panel, roll up doors have a totally different type of operating system. When these doors are used, they can be concealed in an overhead or under mounted trough. These doors operate similarly to a roll top desk door except for how they are stored when not in the closed position. They normally coil as they are retracted, and require significant gear trains to reduce the effort required to move these doors up and down into position. Often the forces needed to move these roll up doors require a reduction type of transmission that allows a very heavy door to be operated effortlessly.
Saving money by purchasing cheap garage doors really is penny wise and pound foolish as the garage door opening is certainly the weakest point in your homes structure. Thieves routinely target garage doors in their efforts to get into your home. A solid garage door that is tied to your home security system will go a long way to protecting your family and your homes contents. In some cases the security system will email you whenever someone opens or enters your garage. If you have a workshop located in your garage or have a classic care collection then you can be assured that your toys are well protected.
The date is January 27, 2011, and the time is early in the middle of the night. In Dallas, TX a family lies quietly sleeping- a husband, a wife, and their little daughter. In the early hours of the morning, the wife awakens and stumbles out of the bedroom to check on their daughter. Perhaps subconsciously she heard a noise. As she walks through the house, she notices that the lights in the house were left on. How strange, she thinks to herself. In her half awake, half asleep stupor, however, she doesnt think too much of it. Then, she notices that the door from the house to the garage was also open, and as she walks closer, she can see that the garage door is open as well.
This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending, but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
