The force and reverse safety tests are necessary for the safety of the owners, the visitors, and the property itself. A certain force is required for a garage door to reverse after a light beam or light beams of the photoelectric sensors catches or catch an obstruction placed between under the garage door and above the garage floor. The said tests should be done to test the effectiveness of the photoelectric sensor and the force adjustment. They have been required by the United States of America’s law since 1982. The Consumer Product Safety Commission also recommends the said requirement. There were actually garage doors having only a stop mechanism and not a reversing mechanism before the said year. The said commission suggests the using of a two by four piece of wood or a two – inch piece of block during the said tests which for the commission should be done monthly. A licensed garage technician should best deal. However, you may do a few actions of adjusting the things that need to be easily adjusted. A user’s manual is always provided every time you purchase items related to these tests.
