Our solution involved installing a direct safe drive (spring-less) operator to reduce future service costs and increase the speed and efficiency of the door.
 
 
Additional details include:
  • Wireless Safety Edge
  • Digital Overhead Control Panel with L.E.D. display
  • 6' Light Curtain mounted inside the tracks (acts as a secondary safety device for any object left within the doorway).
  • Nylon Rollers
  • Non-Rotating 3/16 Cables

 An Enbridge rebate of just over $1000 was given for this door's efficiency upgrade. Also, instead of consistently replacing the springs, they can expect their return on investment (ROI) in just over TWO years!
