Doorteck, Garage Doors, always advises customers when wishing to automate an older garage door that you should be careful not to assume the electric operator or remote control, is going to help with either a worn out or badly fitted garage door, both of which will be heavy to operate as they are usually not balanced correctly. Doorteck offer a free and with out obligation site visit to inspect your existing garage door with a view to making any necessary garage door repairs or replace parts that are needed prior to installation of a remote control system.
All Doorteck remote controls, offer standard safety features which ensure the garage door will stop if an obstruction is met during its operation and reverse to prevent damage to the obstacle or door itself.
This safety feature is built into all CE compliant modern electric operators and relies upon the garage door being properly balanced as a manual door so the safety reverse feature does not receive false readings due to ‘heavy’ or ‘sticky’ positions during the doors operation.
otherwise this will give you a remote control system, that keeps stopping for no apparent reason and defeat the object of door automation.
For roller shutter doors the regulations are even clearer with a bottom edge safety sensor required to stop the roller shutter at any point during closing. Auto close systems have additional requirements which we can explain.

All new Up and Over garage doors can be automated through the use of a ceiling mounted electric operator. Remote controls make automated automatic entry the ultimate convenience they also can prolong the life of your garage door as the door is lifted and closed in a smooth no jerking way and is always pulled and pushed up and down straight. Manuel operated doors are sometimes opened and closed from the bottom corners or slammed shut this caused stress and can sometimes move cables springs, rollers out of alignment, an automatic motor looks after your door.
For Canopy gear doors a bow arm converter is required if a traditional boom operator is installed, although not all canopy type doors are able to have this retrofitted. Automation is always much easier with a Retractable Up and Over door, since the bow arm is not required.
Unfortunately, automation is not compatible with all Up and Over doors, our team will be able to advise.
Remote operation is secure, using hi-tech encryption systems between the remote and the receiver.
