Canopy 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.

The canopy door mechanism is generally only available up to 8 feet (2438mm) wide.

It is not generally used if there is a requirement for automation and although the equipment does exist to automate this type of door, its generally considered poor in operation and reliability.
