Garador's Retractable Up & Over Doors- Easy to Automate

Published:  07 August, 2018

Delivering safety, security and years of trouble free service, Garador’s steel Up & Over garage doors have long been a top favourite across the UK.

Unlike canopy Up & Over garage doors, retractable doors are designed in such a way that they are really easy to automate with an electric operator.

Garador’s Managing Director, Simon Hipgrave explains: “Retractable gearing means the door panel opens on horizontal tracks running back into the garage and the retractable gearing on Garador’s Up & Over doors has been designed specifically for use with our GaraMatic electric operators, a real plus for many home owners.”

Garador’s retractable steel Up & Over doors can be easily automated with a GaraMatic electric operator so the homeowner can open their garage door by pressing a button on a hand transmitter.

GaraMatic operators are expertly engineered to ensure fast and smooth opening with total control and the hand transmitters supplied with them incorporate bi-directional radio signals which are heavily encrypted, meaning no one can copy your signal and gain access to your garage. Other features include a remote status query to indicate whether the door is open or closed – perfect for when you get into the house and then think, did I shut the garage door!?

Garador’s retractable Up & Over doors also come with a unique parking position and multiple spring cassette, to ensure that the door is always safe to use, and are available in a wide range of colours and finishes.
