About Canopy Garage Doors
The canopy garage door is the simplest and most common type of up and over garage door mechanism. Canopy garage doors derive their name from it’s mechanism. When fully opened, the garage door panel protrudes about a third forward of the sub frame to form a canopy.
A canopy garage door is balanced as well as assisted by torsion springs, the springs are positioned above the door panel on the head of the fixing frame.
We don’t generally use a canopy garage door if there is a requirement for automation. There is equipment available to automate this type of door, however, it’s generally considered poor in operation as well as reliability.
