Everything you need to know about Electric Garage Doors


With so many different makes and types of garage door available, it can be difficult to decide which design to choose. Indeed we know from our customers that the wide range of doors available can be a little overwhelming at first. To help you make a more informed decision, here are three things you need to know about electric garages doors (which are also known as automated doors).

1. They are convenient

One of the main benefits of an electric garage door is that they are incredibly easy to open and close compared to a manually operated door. Electric doors can be operated at a push of a button rather than having to lift the door up yourself. They also offer a good level of security compared to locks on manual doors.

2. A variety of entry controls are available

If you opt for an automated door, you can also decide which entry control you use with it. The different methods available include wall-mounted push buttons, electric key switches and digital keypads. You are free to choose which option suits you and your property best.

3. They have safety features

Electric doors also feature safety devices including sensors to detect objects that are in the door’s path. When such an obstruction is identified, inbuilt technology will automatically stop the door from moving any further and switch it into reverse mode.
