The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), estimates that around 80,000 non-fire carbon monoxide poisonings happen yearly. There are approximately 150 fatalities involving these occurences. Some of the primary causes for garage carbon monoxide poisoning are automobiles, motorcycles, engine-driven tools, gas waterheaters, and portable generators.
During the colder winter months, carbon monoxide is an important issue to prevent. Since it is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas, carbon monoxide is hard to detect. Marantec offers a wide variety of garage door openers, and now with added carbon monoxide detection with Marantec's Synergy 300 Collection Garage Door Operators. Marantec is the only company that offers garage door openers with carbon monoxide sensors. Marantec's Synergy Operators will sense carbon monoxide in your garage and automatically cause the garage door to open, releasing the harmful gas. After the carbon monoxide has escaped, the operator will automatically cause the garage door to close again.
