Yes canopy garage doors can be fitted with an electric opener. Canopy garage doors do require a bow arm converter before an electric motor can be fitted to the door, however we recommend a simple conversion kit to a retractable mechanism as this is designed for automation. If you are looking to purchase a new garage door, we would recommend that you consider a retractable garage door instead. These doors are suited much better for automatic operation at a cost that is fractionally higher. You will find that your opener will function not only more reliably but more smoothly. Most garage door installers can supply and fit a automatic garage door opener to a canopy door.
