Overhead Garage Door Installation


If you intend to replace the shutter of your garage with a tilting door, you can do it in a simple way by carefully following the instructions of the mounting kit, and using some tools for fixing screws and tightening bolts. The operation does not require special experience, but only attention during the installation, according mainly to level it perfectly so that it can work well. In this regard, the following guide, I will explain how to install garage door in the garage in a more rapid and understandable as possible. Let’s see how to proceed.

Make sure you have on hand:

  • Mounting kit
  • Wooden or iron frame
  • Hinged
  • Plastic dowels
  • Screws
  • MAB
  • Scooter
  • Spring
  • Electric wires
  • Remote

First, overhead garage door installation is important for two fundamental reasons, that is that the door can be opened upwards so it does not require lateral sliding rails, and also, it is equipped with or prepared a remote control for the opening at a distance. After removing the material that kept the old shutter together, it is necessary especially in place of the rails, to affix a wooden frame (or iron) that acts as a casement for the new door. At this point, you can install the overhead door, it horizontally at the inlet of the garage entrance.

After having seen that the overhead door is perfectly centered in the compartment, and there are no lateral gaps or visible light beams, just on the latter apply the sash (supplied in the mounting kit), to make it stand. Again, it is necessary to fix them with plastic dowels with screws. After installing the overhead door, also set the MAB that allows the opening up, and the motor to raise it via the remote control. The MAB must be fixed on the inside door of the garage, and connected with a spring supplied in the mounting kit of the overhead door.

After fixing this advantageous lever for manual door opening, complete the installation work with the motor for the remote control. The connection takes place in a corner of the garage with electric wires, which act directly on the MAB equipped with a gear that received the impulse from the remote, opens and closes the overhead door. The connection is done simply by inserting the wires into a clamp that is clearly visible on it. With this last phase, your work can finally be defined.
