When it comes to garage door automation, there are a variety of different options available, including automatic closing, operators for heavy usage and various safety features. Standard boom operators are installed centrally at the top of the door fixture and simply pull and push the door up and down, whilst side mounted operators can also be used if headroom is restricted.

Each and every automated garage door operator we supply has built in and integral safety mechanisms to prevent the risk of damage to the property and injury to people. Compact hand transmitters are then used to operate the door and can be linked up to almost any other automated device, enabling the same transmitters to effectively operate a variety of electronic devices. Alongside the ease of access, there are a range of other advantages too, including security, privacy and increased property exclusivity and value. Electric operators can be fitted for as little as £349 including VAT.

Safety Edge Features Installed as Standard

Our automatic roller shutters are fitted with safety edge technology to ensure that there are no injuries or damages caused during the operation of the door. The safety edge enables the shutter to stop on contact with anything. This means, if it was to hit a child or hit the boot of your car, it would stop and rise again. We can install these systems on old roller shutters if required, just speak with our Ashford garage door automation experts to see what we can do for you.
