20-pt Safety Check

At We-Fix-Doors, We ensure that your door is safe and functioning. For this reason, all of our repair services and tune-ups feature a 20-point safety check. Our technician will carefully examine your garage door panels, springs, sensors, safety release, hardware, track, and more. This ensures that not only has our work been done well, but that your garage door poses no danger to your vehicles or family. Due to the intricacy of garage door systems, only garage service professionals should attempt to adjust, repair, or service door equipment.

  • Garage doors are typically the largest motorized moving instrument in one’s home. Garage door safety, quality, and reliability are always key to peak performance and protecting your family. As a courtesy to customers, Accent Garage Doors, a garage door sales, service, and installation company along the Wasatch Front, provides a 20-Point Safety Check included at no cost to customers with any scheduled service. If any of the items in the 20-Point Safety Check List fail, then our technicians may recommend service to get additional maintenance or repairs.

    Garage doors have many moving parts, each one can fail if not properly maintained. We have identified 20 separate elements that are important to inspect for optimal garage door service. We encourage customers to ask any questions that they may have in conjunction with the garage door inspection.

    The 20 points include the following:

    Door Balance Springs Torsion Tube Center Bearing
    End Bearing Cables Drums Hinges
    Tracks Rollers Panels Struts
    Bottom Seal Bottom/Top Brackets Swing Arm Operator
    Forces Sensor Eyes Belt/Chain Tension Travel Limits

    Below are descriptions of a few of the main points examined in the 20 point safety check.

    Door Balance – We check that the balance of the door is not tilted toward one direction or the other. This can impair the door’s functionality.

    Springs – We look at the spring to see how well it is working. Depending on the makeup of the garage door, springs are generally located in the middle of the lifting function of the door.

    Cables – We will inspect cables to determine whether they are working properly, or need replacing. Safety cables keep a broken garage door spring from flying around the garage.

    Rollers – We will examine these to see if they need to be adjusted or replaced.

    Sensor Eyes – We will test the sensor eyes. As a safety precaution, the sensor eyes identify whether an object or person is located below the garage door. If something is below the door, it will not permit the door to close.

    Belt / Chain Tension – We look at whether the belt or chain tension is working correctly.
