"Boom-Type" Openers for Sectional and Up-and-Over Doors


Sectional Doors and Retractable Up-and-Over Doors are usually fitted with "boom"-type drive units. 

Canopy Up-and-Over Doors require the addition of a Conversion Arm (aka Bow Arm) for proper, reliable automation.  Otherwise operation is similar to that of Sectional or Retractable doors.

These are normally belt-drive or chain-drive and have DC servo-controlled motors for greater control. 

These types of openers incorporate "Soft Start & Stop", Courtesy Light and Anti-Theft features and demonstrate very smooth, quite operation.

Cardale Autoglide for Canopy Doors

Autoglide Remote Control Garage Door Opener

Purpose built, the very safe and secure Autoglide Canopy Door Operator features the smart entry system. There is no need for bow arm conversion and the door’s latching system is retained for additional security. 

With a smooth, quiet DC motor, the compact Autoglide operates on the side track of the door and does not intrude into the roof space of the garage.  A Courtesy Light to illuminate the garage may be positioned away from the controller.


Roller Garage Door Automation

Steel-line Motor

Roller Garage Doors usually require Direct Drive or Tubular Motors depending on door type and mechanism.

Thermaglide Roller Doors are supplied with inbuilt automatic operation, whereas Steel-line Roller Curtain Doors offer electric operation as an optional extra. 

Roller Garage Door Motors also incorporate Courtesy Light and Anti-Theft features.

Tubular Motors



Additional wired or wireless devices such as Push Buttons or Keypads can be fitted to complement operation. 

Centurion Automatic Garage Door Openers provide inbuilt and optional Safety Features, including

  • Anti-crush Technology
  • Safety Edge
  • Safety Photocells.

Centurion automatic openers are CE compliant and installed to the latest UK IEE and BS standards.
