Garage Door Motors

Whether you are looking to motorise your existing older door (yes, it can be done!) or for a state-of-the-art garage automation system, we can help.

Automated garage doors with the correct electric motor provide both real convenience and extra security. In selecting your new motor, the most important consideration is that the motor is powerful enough to easily lift your door and that it is compliant with all current safety legislation.

Motors are available in a whole range of strengths (measured in Newtons in the UK and horsepower in the US) as the motor that lifts a double sized timber door will need to be stronger than that which lifts a single sized steel door. Whilst the smaller motor might be able to lift the bigger door initially, it will soon burn out. Similarly, it is important that the motor you chose has been tested to work with your door type and will do so safely, so that if it encounters an obstacle it will stop and reverse. With 39 years experience of garage door motors, let the Up & Over team help you chose the appropriate solution.

In recent years the technology available in the motors has moved on significantly so they can now fully integrate into an existing home automation system to be controlled by smart phone or tablet, as well as working in conjunction with cameras to allow you to monitor the garage. Additionally if there is no power available then battery powered motors are available, with the option to trickle charge from a solar panel.

In the simplest terms, once you have experienced the luxury of opening and closing the garage door at the touch of a button you will wish you had done it years ago!
