Original Cardale CD45 type canopy mechanism

 A converted CD45 door with Seip electric operator
Note: the original vertical tracks will be removed form the doorframe during this conversion and the door moved forward by the track thickness (25mm), therefore the door-stop above the door (if fitted) must be moved forward accordingly.   If the door is currently installed into a steel frame three 25mm x 75mm timber battens will need to be attached to the rear of the steel frame with grip-fill mastic and self-tapping screws prior to re-installing the door on the new AP100 horizontally tracked gear

Please Note: After conversion to horizontally tracked operation the door will extend back into the garage approximately 40cm to 50cm more than it did with the original vertically tracked canopy mechanism so please check your garage for obstructions such as an RSJ or gas meter etc. before undertaking this conversion.

Read what our D.I.Y. customers say !

I purchased two Arcadian door gear kits to convert a pair of Garador canopy doors.  It's good quality gear and you don't need a degree in rocket science to fit it. Then I ordered two Seip TM60 remote controlled electric operators.  Again, excellent equipment which was straight forward to fit and is wonderfully effective. I encountered a couple of minor problems along the way (with my particular installation, not with the equipment) and a phone call to Nick at Amourelle had it all sorted in seconds. Amourelle's prompt delivery and customer service are second to none. It is refreshing to find a company with such 'old fashioned' customer value! - Jeff Vernon; Doncaster, S. Yorks.   I ordered a Seip electric door opener and an Arcadian door gear conversion kit for my canopy type garage door late on Thursday evening, the goods were delivered next day 11.30!!  I received plenty of help and advice. And there can’t be many businesses that say ”If you are doing the work over the weekend and need help, then just give me a call on my mobile”   All in all a great service.
I. Saunders, Aldershot, Hants.
