Garage Door Automation

Garage doors are automated by a variety of operators. During a free property survey our installers will recommend the ideal electronic automation system and installation to fit your garage door operator.

There are a number of options when it comes to garage door automation, such as operators for heavy usage, automatic closing and various safety features. Standard boom operators are installed centrally at the top of the door fixture and simply push and pull the door up and down, whilst side mounted operators can be used if headroom is restricted.

All automated garage door operators have integral lights and in-built safety mechanisms to prevent risk of injury and damage to people or property. Compact hand transmitters are used to operate the door and these can be linked up to almost any other automated device, enabling the same transmitters to operate a host of electronic devices. Besides the convenience of door automation there are several more benefits, such as security, privacy and increased property exclusivity and value. Electric operators can be fitted for as little as £349 including VAT.

Designed to improve the look and feel of your property, our electronic garage door automation systems are an ideal choice for customers fed up with having problems with their garage door opening in the pouring rain.
