Industry Standard Garage Doors are Dangerous

No one in the world builds a safer garage door or is more committed to safety than Martin.  Building a safer door has been an on-going quest since the 1980s, when Martin initiated an industry-leading focus on the hazards of garage door use.

Martin engineers have considered potential safety hazards associated with garage door use, and initiated innovations to reduce those safety concerns. They have created safer section joints, protection against the free fall of a garage door in case of a cable break and even safer rollers and tracks.
