Living in Sydney and looking to step up your garage door game? Your garage door is one of the most regularly used features of your home, but you might be surprised how many accessories are out there that will make it more convenient to use, safer and improve its functionality.

Garage Door Openers

Tired of having to get out of the car on rainy days just to open the garage door? Maybe you or someone you live with has mobility issues. There are so many ways having a garage door opener will improve your life, that once you get one – you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

The great news is that most manual doors can be transformed into automatic doors.

Of course, if you have any questions about what the right opener is, Steel-Line is happy to chat. We’ll help you choose a door opener you’ll love.

Along with being clearly more convenient than manual garage doors, an automatic garage door is safer, and less likely to cause injuries.

It’s only natural to be concerned about the entrances of your home, and your garage is no exception. A wireless keypad can be programmed with up to twelve different user codes. It’s a great way to provide access to family members, tradespeople and neighbours, without any of the hassles of having to give them a physical key. Want to just go for a walk? There’s no need to bring your keys and you can rest assured that your home safe.

The keypad is weather-resistant to withstand rainy days. It’s also easy to reprogram so if you’re ever worried your PIN is in the wrong hands, it’s an easy fix. You have the option of a temporary PIN number, which is great for tradespeople or other temporary visitors who need to access your house.

Photo Electric Beams

When it comes to your garage doors, safety is a top priority, especially if you have little ones and pets running around. Photo Electric Beams detect obstructions and tell your door to stop and retract. This has two huge benefits – the first is avoiding damage to your property. The Photo Electric Beams will detect any obstruction before stopping the doors in their tracks (literally), preventing the need for you to fork out money for repairs.

Second, and most important, it’ll prevent any injuries to you and your family. Anyone with kids or pets knows, try as you might, you can’t keep your eye on them 24/7. The Photo Beam will stop anyone from being injured by your door.

The Photo Electric Beam is one of those things you hope you’ll never need, but it only has to do its job once for it to pay for itself.
