Garage Door Automation: MasterCraft and CENTURION Systems

Centurion - SD04 Smart

A garage door motor is designed to make our lives as drivers and even the passengers, easier. A simple “click” of a button on a remote allows the garage door to open and close.

An automated door is also far safer in areas where crime is a possibility. With an automated door you simply “click” and drive. There is no need to leave your vehicle in order to unlock the door, open the door and only then drive the vehicle into the safety of the garage.

Choosing your garage door motor

This area can be a mine field. There are so many different options to choose from. Each company will offer a variety of models and different promises.

We, at MasterCraft, have been in the garage door industry for around 21 years. We know the different manufacturers, the different importers. We know which manufacturers and importers will stand behind their product when things start going wrong. Over the years, we have tried and tested suppliers who share our views regarding ethical business practice and give those we feel are simply making a quick “buck” a wide berth.

In short, we install a motor that is supported by the manufacturer giving you, the end user, peace of mind.

With this in mind, we have partnered with CENTURION Systems. This company shows fantastic business ethics, faultless morals and a readiness to listen to, and find solutions to, any issues that may be on hand.
