Sussex Automatic Garage Doors
The ultimate accessory for all manual garage doors in Sussex is to have them automated. Most existing Sussex garage doors can have automation added as an aftermarket upgrade. When looking at adding this wonderful option be sure to consider all the available accessories.
Why not replace your existing door with an automatic garage door giving you a fully secure and automated entrance to your Sussex garage.
Operation of your Sussex automatic garage door
Your radio controlled automatic garage door in Sussex can be opened or closed by pressing either the button fitted on the garage wall, or your radio transmitter which is hand-held. The transmitter will work at a range of approximately 100ft (even from inside your house out of sight of the garage door), and has the latest rolling code security. Extra transmitters can be purchased, and extra wall buttons can be fitted in the garage or the other side of the wall.
Pressing the button or transmitter when the automatic garage door is closed will cause it to open fully in approximately 12 seconds, then stop. A further press will make it close and positively lock. If the door should meet an obstruction during closing - e.g. a car bonnet - or if the button is pressed again, the door will automatically reverse and go back to the open position. If obstructed while opening, the door will automatically stop.

- Key Switch
The door can also be operated automatically by a key-switch (optional extra) fitted to the outside of the garage door frame. This is useful if the transmitter is not available (car out on a journey), or if there is no other entrance into the garage (car locked in garage with the transmitter).
- Automatic Light
Whenever the door is used, a built-in light comes on and illuminates your garage, switching itself off after 3 minutes.
Very useful for those dark Sussex winter months or in areas where your garage entrance is in the shade.
- Power Failure
In the event of a power failure the door can be opened manually after pulling a release cable at the back of the door. If there is no entrance to the garage, you will need a manual key release (optional extra) which is set into the face of the automatic garage door and allows external release of the door with a key.
