Up and Over Garage Doors

Up & Over garage doors are by far the most common garage door type within the UK. Their simple one piece construction makes them very easy to use and provide both a low-effort and zero hassle operation. Up and over garage doors fall into two main categories for the types of operating mechanism - canopy or retractable. This is how the garage door panel opens and closes and both mechanisms have their uses in different applications. Up and over garage doors also require a fixing sub frame.

Canopy Up & Over Garage Doors

The canopy garage door is the simplest and most common type of up and over garage door mechanism, its name derived from the fully opened garage door panel protruding about a third forward of the sub frame to form a canopy. It gives the maximum drive-through width when open and is the easiest to install. The door is balanced and assisted by torsion springs positioned above the door panel on the head of the fixing frame.

Retractable Up & Over Garage Doors

The drive-through width on a retractable mechanism is always reduced as the lifting arms sit in between the sub-frame when the door is opened. The retractable mechanism can take much heavier loads with tension springs. It is generally considered smoother and easier to operate type of door. This type of door will convert easily and safely into remote control electric operation.
