California Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill that requires the installation of all new construction garage doors to include a battery backup.
A state senator sponsored the bill after he and his neighbors were unable to pull cars out of their garages during the 2017 wildfire evacuation because the electricity was out. The law takes effect in July 2019.
Madden Door supports the new law. We have long regarded battery backups for garage doors as a necessity.
The new law applies only to new construction garage doors, so it will be some time before all garage doors in California have battery backups. Madden Door encourages everyone to consider purchasing a battery backup for their garage doors.
Installation, even for several doors, is inexpensive and quick. A Madden Door professional can outfit your door with a battery backup in less than an hour. Batteries last up to three years before needing replacement or recharging.
