Marantec M4500e – Safety, Security and Warranty
All Marantec garage door openers are dealer installed and come with a full complement of safety and security features:
Photo Eye Safety System – The M4500e’s advanced infra-red safety system has reversal sensing technology that flashes a warning light as it stops and reverses the door when it meets with an object, animal, or person. The Photo Eye Safety System continuously looks for obstructions adding a higher level of safety for you and your family.
60 Watts of Light – This is one of the “entry level” features of the M4500e. With only one light socket and a maximum of 60 watts of output, this model does not do a stellar job of lighting the garage. It does offer an adjustable time delay to automatically turn off the light. If you need more than minimal lighting in your gargae, consider adding accessory garage lighting to fit your purpose.
Warranty – 15 year parts warranty. The Marantec M4500e is the only model in Marantec’s product line that does not offer a lifetime warranty on parts to the original owner. Unlike competitor’s warranties that only cover the motor, Marantec’s “bumper-to-bumper” parts warranty includes all parts within the garage door opener and garage door rail system, motor, gears, belt or chain, and electronics. When comparison shopping it is wise to read the fine print on warranties so there are no surprises.
