You wish to motorize your garage door, to facilitate opening. Whether sliding or sectional, it is possible to make an electric door, by adapting a motor to the door. A motorized door prevents you from getting out of your car, to enter or exit. You can use a door manufacturer or do it yourself.
Steps of realization
Assemble the different elements of the rail, inserting the carriage that is to be engaged inside the rail. Also assemble the chain and cable assembly.
The rail being fixed to the motor, place it by fixing it to the ceiling or on the lintel, on its support, beforehand fixed using adapted nuts. It is necessary to leave a gap of 3 cm between the motor and the ceiling. It is also preferable to take the measurements before fixing the motor.
Check that the rail chain is adjusted so that it is not loosened, otherwise the clamping screws must be tightened further.
Screw the ends of the rail, i.e. front and rear, using bolts, usually supplied with the motor. The assembly must be perfectly aligned; check the square with a spirit level.
Make the electrical connection, connecting the various motor cables to the electrical network. Attach the push button or remote control switch housings to the specified location.
To secure the limit switches, the door must first be closed manually. The middle of the carriage and the middle of the end position magnet must be aligned once the end position has been determined.
Check that the installation is carried out correctly, by testing the opening and closing of the garage door remote. Check that the remote control works by operating it. It is possible to have a remote control for each user.
If the door automation only works when the door is opened, but not when it is closed, check the limit switch system, the screws may be too tight. You can also provide the motorization for the automatic closing of a gate.
