SOMMER bow arm converter to suit all canopy garage doors and remote control systems. A bow arm converter allows doors with canopy type operating gear to be electrically operated. If the door springs are located across the top of the garage door and has side channels then generally it would require a bow arm converter.

The bow arm converter will allow you to electrically operate a canopy door system without having to change the existing door mechanism to a retractable type. Provided the door is operating smoothly, and the door itself is strong enough to support the bow arm, there should be no issues in installing an electric opener. It is recommended to ensure the installed operator is powerful enough to operate the door, as the force required would be more than on a retractable mechanism.

Without the addition of a bow arm converter it is impossible to electrically automate a canopy type garage door. This is because if you attempted to open/close the door by pulling from the top, you would cause the door to jam. By installing the bow arm converter, you alter the opening force on the door by applying force to both the top and bottom of the door.

Please note, that the bow arm will hang down by approx. 6" further when the door is open, so please ensure that if a vehicle is stored in the garage that you have sufficient height available as to not impact on this.

  • Fits all canopy doors
