Commercial Door Operators
No matter what door you install, it will never live up to its full potential if you don’t provide it with the essentials it needs for functional operation. Our electric motor operators are designed to live up to the roughest environments and operate continuously, providing a valuable return on investment in terms of maintenance and upkeep.
Why electrical motor-operated 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, and we are proud to share our expertise to keep businesses and organizations at their best.
Standard safety devices on all power-operated doors require routine inspections from certified technicians to ensure proper operation, so do not hesitate to reach out for service or replacement of existing faulty units.
Gearhead Hoist (GH) style commercial door operators employ lubricated gears for heavy industrial, high cycle applications. GH-style operators include a floor level chain hoist to ease manual operation in an emergency or power outage.
Hoist (H) -style operators include a floor level chain hoist to ease manual operation in an emergency or power outage. The operators are typically mounted to the wall when used with larger sectional overhead doors with vertical or high lift and mounted to the wall or the front of the hood when used with rolling doors and grilles.
Jackshaft operators are typically installed with sectional doors that can be manually lifted by push-up in an emergency or power outage. The operators are typically mounted to the wall when used with smaller sectional overhead doors with a vertical or high lift and mounted to the wall or the front of the hood when used with rolling doors and grilles.
Trolley operators, the most commonly seen in residential garage door applications, are used on sectional overhead doors with standard lift (where there is not much room above the door opening for clearance), and are suspended from the ceiling, where they are directly attached to drive and control the door. As this lift configuration requires the door to ‘break back’ or retract into the opening at a more-or-less 90 degree angle, it creates potential for obstructions and is generally only used in situations where a lack of headroom clearance prevents a sectional door from being configured with vertical or high-lift track.
