Seip Antriebs Technik
The Automatic Choice

Garador type 'S/S', 'type C', Mk2 & Mk3c vertically tracked
canopy doors can re-hung on new horizontally tracked support
gear to enable safe & reliable remote controlled operation

(These Garador canopy doors have their springs located inside a steel box above the door)
Out with the old, in with the new !    The following pictures show various stages of our conversion

The design of the AP100 lifting gear provides maximum drive-through width at door mirror height

Soft rubber weather-strips down the timber door jambs keep out draughts whilst eliminating any risk of damage to your car

The original Garador Mk3c vertical tracks, support arms, rollers,
cables, corner plates & overhead spring unit are removed & discarded

Earlier Mk3 gear with solid 'O' section link arms

Note: early Westland Engineers Ltd (WEL) doors with a vertical seam down the centre had 'folded'
upper side weather beads which cannot be removed making them unsuitable for our conversion

The original Garador bottom corner plates are removed & discarded

Once the door is stripped of the original vertically tracked gear
it is re-installed on new Arcadian AP100 horizontally tracked support gear

Steel bracing plates are fitted to the bottom corners
to accommodate the new mechanism

New top rollers & weather-strips are fitted

A completed AP100 horizontally tracked gear conversion, the door
glides effortlessly back into the garage on its new horizontal tracks

With the right hand door converted, note how this door fully retracts on its
new horizontal runners, the left door is still on its original canopy type 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.

Once converted, your existing canopy door will
glide effortlessly back into the garage on horizontal
tracks making it suitable for electric operation.

Electric Operators


A remote controlled garage door will be locked automatically by the electric operator at the top when closed.

Our optional Securi-Dor AP2000 patented locking system can be fitted to provide additional security by   automatically engaging security bolts at the bottom corners of the door when closed to provide an unrivalled level of security

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

I purchased two Arcadian AP100 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 cant 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.
