Can I automate my garage door?Updated 6 months ago

We provide electric motors required to automate the following door types:

  • Retractable garage doors (all of the door slides back into the garage), 
  • Canopy garage doors (third of the door hangs outside, forming a canopy)
  • Swing doors (door is side hinged and swings outside, can be 1 or 2 doors)

For up-and-over and sectional garage doors, you can use the following electric motors

Please note Canopy Garage Doors require a Bow Arm Converter to be automated. Without this the door will jamb. 

Side-hinged garage doors can also be automated with the addition of a swing door kit.

For Gates, you can use the following electric motors

If unsure which electric motor you should use, please contact us at [email protected] and our team can advise.
