Commercial Door Operators

No matter how great of a door you install, it will never live up to its full potential if you don’t provide it with the essentials it needs forfunctional operation. Our operators are designed to live up to the roughest environments and operate continuously.

Why automate your doors?

  • Increases the life expectancy of the door and reduces service costs associated with ensuring proper operation of commercial doors.
  • Reduces the opportunity for a soft tissue injury to occur when opening or closing a commercial door manually

At American Overhead Door & Dock Safety is our#1 priority. Standard safety devices on all power operated doors require routine inspections from certified technicians to ensure proper operation.
