Leading Australian manufacturer of commercial door openers, Grifco urges
owners and managers of commercial and industrial workplaces to consider all
aspects of workplace safety.
Commercial doors are commonly not considered when conducting workplace
safety inspections of potentially hazardous equipment within factories, warehouses
or car parks. Large commercial doors are often the largest moving objects in
the building, and can pose potential risks to employee health and safety as
well as damage to property.
Be it the builder, building designer, architect, owner or tenant of a
factory, warehouse or commercial property, it is the responsibility of those
who specify, manufacture, supply, install, own or operate commercial doors to
check whether their automated door installations are safe and compliant.
Non-compliant automated commercial door and opener installations can pose
a greater risk of injury or entrapment to persons and damage to property or
vehicles. Entrapment protection is required in commercial doors that either shut
automatically or by a single press of a button to prevent risk of injury or
Safe and compliant commercial
Compliant commercial door openers are designed to prevent injury or
property damage using several safety inputs for monitored entrapment protection
such as light curtains, bump edges and IR beams. On detection of an obstruction,
these inputs signal the door to stop and auto-reverse, preventing potential
injury and damage.
As a major partner to the commercial door industry, Grifco aims to
increase awareness of potential risks and key aspects of current compliance
