As many people know, the garage door itself is both strong and durable but is also susceptible to damage. Rust, spring and roller damage, even foreign objects colliding with the door, there are many things that are inadvertently trying to knock your door down. But what you may not realize, is that there is a simple solution, something that can help it stand against natural attacks and damage the environment throws at it, reinforcement struts. Odd enough though, you may not have these incredibly essential devices included on your garage door. Well, allow us to shed some light on this.
What Are They?
A garage door reinforcement strut is what looks like a metal strut that goes the entirety of the door, located on the inside of the door. The bar will be U shaped and attached to hinges to allow for it to more easily move.
What Do They Do?
Reinforcement struts have two main functions:
– The struts support the garage door when it is open.
– The struts offer reinforcement to the door at all times against severe weather. They become specifically important on doors in locations that more inclined to strong winds and hurricane threats.
How Do They Work?
The strut gives you the real support that your garage door needs; they do this by adding legitimate backing to the door. The sectioned, thin metal that makes up the door is not made to take nearly as much damage as one may think. As shown in the video, these struts become made of durable and thick metal. This makes sure that these parts of the door will not push back, and in turn add to the structural integrity of the door. Unique Garage Door Services
