Garador garage door cable repair

Post by Davefaeporty » Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:25 pm

Hi, does anyone know how to replace the cables on a Garador canopy garage door....mine snapped today. I've tried searching online, but can't seem to find any. I did manage to find the extract below, which seems to be the type of door I have. Cheers!!

Garador’s current canopy C-type door has been manufactured since 2002 and is sometimes referred to as a CG, CF or G3 type door. The spring is a single torsion spring running across the door frame above the door. On either end there is a cast metal drum around which the support cables run. This model of door also uses new ‘anti-drop’ safety mechanisms which prevents the door from slamming shut in the case of the cables breaking.

Distinctive features:

Overhead torsion spring
Cast metal cable drums
