Canopy Doors have a spring mechanism at the top lifting the door panel at the side and forming a canopy when open as a third of the door sticks out. A canopy door is most commonly used as a basic single width one piece up and over door.
Retractable Doors have horizontal tracks which are attached to the top of the door frame to guide the door open. Lifting movement is provided by springs located on both sides of the door frame which pull on the lifting arms in a cantilever action. This provides and exceptionally smooth opening and closing action which is ideal for electric operation.
Open vertically into a compact roll above the opening, taking up minimal space in the garage. This allows you to park right up in front of your garage door.
