Energy efficiency: High operating speeds mean energy-efficient operation, minimizing outside air infiltration during operation.

Versatile applications: Convert almost any balanced or unbalanced overhead door into a high-speed door.

Better operational efficiency: Increase throughput with high-speed doors.

Minimize or eliminate maintenance: Minimize or eliminate maintenance costs (model dependent) and enhance reliability in daily operations.

Information

A maintenance-free high-speed springless Safedrive operator

The high-speed springless Safedrive operator is maintenance-free, self-monitoring and operates silently. Its incredibly fast opening speeds of up to 100″/second is energy-efficient and helps to increase operational efficiency, throughput and worker productivity, while its springless design eradicates costly spring repairs and replacements. In addition, this high-speed operator reduces energy loss and prevents air exchange from slow operators that allow heat and/or cooled indoor air to escape out the door.

High-speed Stealth operator uses is compact and economical

The Stealth overhead door operator is the economical operator option that uses advanced adaptive motor and control system technology that enables significantly higher power density, dramatically better performance and long-term reliability in a compact, lightweight package. Its designed to work with doors that have significant out-of-balance weights, helping to ensure that the door can continue to operate over an extended period of time due to changes in spring strength, door weights or even changes in the friction of the hardware. The Stealth operator is designed to perform at 240 cycles/hour for over 5000 cycles per day for continuous hassle-free operation.

Ideal applications for either high-speed overhead door operator

Both high-speed overhead door operators are used in a variety of commercial and industrial applications. They are best suited for car wash/automotive dealerships and food storage/manufacturing facilities. The Safedrive and Stealth high-speed operators are designed to operate on numerous types of overhead doors including: aluminum polycarbonate, aluminum Lexan, rolling steel, rolling grilles, trolley, shutter, rubber roll-up, fabric roll-up, sectional, horizontal single-leaf, bi-parting doors, and more.
