Your garage door is, by far, the largest opening in your home. It is a complex system made with door sections, rollers, pulleys and springs, and therefore it is important to have a garage door made by trustworthy manufacturers to ensure its reliability and its long-term safety for you and your family, while also adding to your property’s curb appeal.
Amarr has been one of the world’s leading designers, manufacturers and distributors of garage doors since its founding in 1951. The company dedicates itself to providing high quality, durable and safe garage door systems, including a wide variety of sectional overhead garage doors and plenty of options for garage door openers.
Amarr also provides a wide selection of classic carriage house doors, a unique type of garage door made with three sections rather than four sections to provide an authentic 19th and early 20th century carriage house appearance. Amarr Classica® designs are stamped into the steel material used to create these doors, which ensures permanent carriage house design features without fear of shifting or detaching.
All Amarr garage doors in Rancho Cordova, CA use the highest-quality available components and steel. But what really sets Amarr apart from the competition are its safety features.
Pinch protection from Amarr
Amarr strongly believes in providing doors that are safe for everyone in your family. That’s why the company has developed doors with pinch protection, which is designed to reduce the risk of serious hand and finger injuries.
Consider this—more than 80 percent of parents believe in paying a couple bucks more per hour for a babysitter certified in CPR, just in case there is an emergency. Parents also purchase bike helmets that are a bit more expensive and that have extra cushioning, just in case their child falls off their bike. Car buyers frequently pay additional hundreds of dollars for vehicles that have side airbags and other safety features.
Garage door safety is a similar kind of issue, and should be seriously considered by homeowners making new garage door purchases, especially when you consider approximately 71 percent of homeowners use their garage door as their primary entry door—even more than their front entry door.
For little extra cost, homeowners can get Amarr steel garage doors that use the SafeGuard system, which reduces the risk of these pinching injuries. Selecting this type of garage door provides you with some extra peace of mind that no member of your household will accidentally injure themselves while the garage door goes up. The extra safety for the negligible extra cost is more than worth it. Let’s assume your garage door lasts you for 12 years. Over the course of that time, the SafeGuard protection will cost you between $2.50 and $10 per year. Again—it’s absolutely worth it.
