The partnership between Merlin and Supercars is backed by the support of Merlin's brand ambassador, legendary Supercars driver and four-time Bathurst 1000 winner, Greg Murphy.
“As a race car driver, safety and risk-management has always been important to me - on and off the track. There are safety risks in everything we do – whether it’s going 300km/h around the racetrack, kicking a footy around at home, or even entering and exiting your home via the garage,” said Greg Murphy.
“In many ways, driver safety starts at home in the garage. What I love about Merlin is that it considers the risks and potential hazards that your garage might pose, and develops the technology for its garage door openers and gate openers accordingly. Smart access technology in Merlin’s myQ App and accessories such as Safety Beams allow you to have complete control of garage safety at home,” concludes Greg.
