What is an up-and-over garage door?

Up-and-over garage doors are a popular cost-effective choice for many homeowners, and they come in two different types – canopy and retractable

The canopy door is deemed the most basic of garage doors and, when open, sits halfway in and halfway out of the garage opening. Although this option can be automated it is not ideal as it is not designed to operate that way and is best as a manual door

The retractable door opens and slides in on horizontal tracks with hardly any of the door protruding the front of the garage once open. This option can easily be automated

Both of these options swing out when being opened so are not ideal for garages located with paths directly in front of them

Opening Mechanisms:

There are two main operating styles – canopy and retractable, each of which contains a spring mechanism that aids in lifting the door. Canopy doors have a overhead torsion spring located across the top of the door whereas a retractable door has spring clusters at each side. The canopy system suits doors up to 8ft wide with retractable doors going up to 16’0 if needed
