Safety Clearance Eyes

These safety devices are an extremely important component of your overhead door system. What they do is prevent or stop the door from closing if they detect that any form of obstruction exists. Obstructions can be anything… vehicles, children’s toys, pets or young children. These devices function by projecting an invisible beam across the base of your door. When each eye can “see” each other, it allows your door opener to function normally. If they are unable to see each other, it means that something is in the way.
