Why Choose an Automatic Garage Door?

In recent years, the demand for automatically operated garage doors has overtaken the demand for manually operated doors (except for pedestrian garage doors), due to technological advances in motor drives, energy efficiency, security features, safety features, reliability, and more. Increasingly, our customers are choosing the hands-free benefits of an automatic garage door over a manual alternative.

Types of Automatic Garage Door

Many of the manually operated door types we offer are also available as automatically operated garage doors:

Automatic Roller Doors

Roller garage doors have several mechanisms to enable automatic operation. An external motor drive or a ‘tube’ motor will typically be used and should include a manual override system in case of emergency or power failure.

Side Roller Shutter Doors
Automatic Side Roller Doors

Automatic side roller doors (also known as ‘side rolling’ or ‘round the corner’ doors) operate using either a ‘boom’ type operator to push and pull the door panels open and closed, or a rack and pinion system where the motor drive is fitted to the door itself.

Up and Over Garage Door Fitters
Automatic Up & Over Doors

Up and over garage doors can be opened and closed using a ‘boom’ type electric operator to push and pull the door panel outwards and inwards. Canopy up and over doors require a separate conversion system, known as a ‘bow arm convertor’.

Garage Doors Sectional Door Installers
Automatic Sectional Garage Doors

Sectional garage doors can be automatically operated using a ‘boom’ type operator. As this type of door can be large, it’s important to fit the right length of boom and ensure that you have sufficient power to open and close the door.

Side Hinged Garage Doors Supplied and Fitted
Automatic Side Hinged Doors

Automatic side hinged doors typically feature a ‘boom’ type electric operator, where steel rod adapters push and pull the door panels, driving them outwards and inwards. Alternatively, a more enhanced hydraulic system or a piston system may be used.

    Automatic garage doors employ the latest technology to offer hands-free convenience and easy access to your garage at any time. They are much like manual garage doors, apart from the fact that they feature an electric operator.

    Automatic garage doors open and close similarly to their manual equivalent, apart from the fact that they feature an electric operator. This allows you to open and close your garage door with a push of a button, from the comfort of your home or vehicle. Most garage door systems are available as a manual product, with the electric operating system purchased and installed at the same time, or added at a later date. Automation systems generally include an electric motor, a control system, and a mechanism to attach the motor to your garage door.

    Modern automatic garage doors feature a manual emergency override system, meaning you can still access your garage space during a power cut or in case of motor failure. There are various systems available, such as: 

    • Release mechanism fitted to the garage door handle – for up and over, side hinged, and sectional type doors
    • Release mechanism fitted via a key barrel in the door panel – for doors with a solid panel structure
    • External low-level winding handle access point – for insulated roller garage doors when there is no other door into the garage
    • High-level external winding handle access point – for roller garage doors where the entire door is fitted externally and the winding mechanism for the manual override is accessible from outside
    • Battery backup system – for all garage door types

    If you require further information about the manual override systems included with our automatic garage doors, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01473 935083 or send us your enquiry using our online form.

    The lifespan of an automatic garage door is affected by multiple factors, including how frequently it is used, how well it is maintained, the quality of the electric operating system, and the environment in which the door is situated. With proper maintenance, most automatic door openers can be expected to provide between 10 and 15 years of reliable operation.

    Here at The Pegasus Door Company, we offer a great value service contract with all of our doors, including a five-year installation warranty. Simply give us a call or send us your enquiry to arrange a free, initial consultation with a member of our friendly team.

    An automatic garage door can make your life much easier, especially if you find it difficult to open your existing garage door. Fortunately, as long as your manual garage door is in good working order, the addition of an electric operator is usually a simple and inexpensive procedure. Depending on the type and age of your existing garage door, our experienced team can recommend a variety of suitable electric operating systems.

    So, if you’re based in the East of England or London area and would like to upgrade to an automatic garage door, simply contact The Pegasus Door Company and a member of our friendly team will be happy to help.
