Get Garage Doors with Pedestrian Door08/08/2013 Back To Blog
One of the biggest problems with garage doors is probably when you have to open and close them over and over again every time you want to get something out of the garage. This can be very time consuming. Some also come with a pedestrian door (also known as a wicket door). This makes things easier and more convenient. The little door attached to the garage door would enable you to go in and out as you see fit without pressing the garage door clicker at all. The small pedestrian door will save you a lot of time and effort throughout the day but also energy. Garage door parts will suffer less since they won't work twice as much as if there wasn't a pedestrian door and, thus, last longer.
Options for Pedestrian Door
When it comes to the pedestrian door your choices of size, material and door mechanism are practically endless. There is a pedestrian door to suit every need and style. Whether you like the standard white door, fancy a shiny aluminum one or are after a homely timber door you can have it. In terms of size, they range from very big to small. On the material front, they come in a wide variety including timber, steel and aluminum. Additionally, the mechanisms for the pedestrian door also come in a range of choices as well.
Safer against Criminals
The overhead door has always been a potential way for burglars to sneak into your house at night unnoticed, especially if you have a side door at the side or back of your garage. Now that won’t be a problem. The wicket or pedestrian door is right at the front of the garage. It is installed at the front of the house and so it is right in full view of the neighbors. As such, the chances of burglars sneaking into your property unnoticed are very small indeed. They can also lock and if you are regular with garage door maintenance, the chance of having burglars coming in is reduced down to zero.
