Garage Doors Automation
We have a wide range of automatic doors to suite any home.
Choosing The Right Gear Type
Novoferm offer ranges of Up and Over doors operating in different ways. Depending on your preference and the physical characteristics of your garage, some types of operation may be more suitable for you than others. The information here will give you an insight into the choice of operating mechanisms and their features.
The canopy gear allows the door to travel in vertical tracks and is counterbalanced by an overhead torsion spring. In the open position, the door projects from the opening approximately one third of the door height, forming a canopy. Available in 54mm and 70mm frames.
The retractable gear allows the door to be retracted fully, inside the garage when open, by means of horizontal overhead tracks supported by wall or ceiling mounted suspension brackets. Available in 54mm and 70mm frames.
The functional and clean lines of the ‘D’ handle makes it the handle of choice for Novoferm Up & Over garage doors.
Alternatively, if you are purchasing an insulated sectional door, our traditional anodized aluminium ‘T’ handles are available.

The NovoPort® operator system not only offers maximum convenience during operation, but also during installation. After all, it is not fixed to the ceiling like conventional operators, but simply integrated into the side garage door track – either on the left or the right depending on the structural conditions. Therefore no ceiling assembly is required and any installation problems are ruled out from the outset. All structural components are pre-assembled in the factory and dimensionally accurate – simply insert them together and voilà!
The operator can be mounted in the right garage track, the control on the right garage wall…
… or directly next to the garage door in the area of the side rebate.
An optional cable extension can be used in case of a fitted side rebate, e.g., through a side door.
All the installation variants shown in illustrations 1–3 also apply for the left garage door side.

One powerful automatic unit suitable for sectional and up & over garage doors

The opener can be enhanced with extra handsets, mini wall mounted push button controllers, key switches and coded keypads.
It runs and runs and runs
The wear resistant top-quality toothed belt rail ensures quiet and smooth running and long-term, reliable garage door operation. The toothed belt is reinforced on the inside with fivefold steel cables, oil and acid resistant and completely maintenance-free.
Practical – whichever way you turn it
The flat operator head of the Novomatic can be turned by 90° or 180° if required. This saves up to 15cm space when the slide-in depth is, for example, reduced due to a wall construction. The operator track does not have to be shortened either.
