Do you want to save money?

Do you want your garage to be well lit when you come home?

Install Overhead Door ™ LED light bulbs




What type of light bulb should you be using in your garage door opener? Have you ever wondered what having an LED light bulb could do for your garage? Look no further, because we have just introduced our first ever LED light bulb – specifically made for garage door openers.

The Overhead Door ™ LED light bulb includes the following features

a. Long Lasting Lighting And More Energy Savings

Our LED light bulb provides optimal lighting at a low cost. While it has 800 lumens of brightness, our light bulb only uses 10 watts of power. Depending on local utility rates, that means that the annual cost can be as little as $1.07 per year and the lifespan can be about 25,000 hours for normal use.

b. Handles Tough Conditions In The Garage

Our LED light bulb is also designed and manufactured to handle the tough conditions garage doors often experience. It is shatter and vibration resistant, and is able to withstand 5G of shaking force, which is far more than the normal vibration from a garage door system.

Additionally, a garage is often cold and damp, which can affect how long a light bulb lasts. However, our LED light bulb is made to withstand up to -30°C (-22°F), as well as many damp areas throughout a garage.
