Canopy up-and-over garage doors
When canopy garage doors are opened, they stay straight as they roll up smoothly, the spring mechanism at the top lifts the door panel at the side and forming a canopy.
A useful benefit of the canopy door is that there are no tracks running back into the garage when the door is closed. However, the swing-up arc of the door happens outside of the frame, so cars need to stop a few feet back.
This door type can be converted to be remote controlled but is expensive to convert since it requires additional equipment such as a motor. View our range of automatic/electric garage door options for easy remote control access.
Retractable up-and-over garage doors
An opened retractable garage door will fully retract back into the garage, unlike the canopy garage door which partially hangs over the outside. They typically run smoothly along horizontal tracks across the ceiling of the garage, these tracks that guide back into the garage, which reduces noise when opening and closing.
The retractable up and over garage door is an increasingly popular door type nowadays because they can be easily converted to remote control and are very reliable too.
