Commercial Door Operator Product Options

Commercial door operators come in three varieties: light, medium, and industrial (or heavy) duty. The best type for your business will depend on the weight and size of your commercial door and how frequently you use the door in a day. Explore details on these three varieties below then contact us to book your appointment for commercial operator installation or replacement.


Light-duty commercial operators are ideal for applications with limited hourly cycles, like businesses with sheet doors or small sectional doors. These usually feature a chain or jackshaft drive with an overhead or wall-mount design. Light-duty operators are best for businesses that don’t use their doors more than 25 times a day. 


Medium-duty operators are ideal for increased door weight and frequency of cycles, like for insulated doors, commercial glass doors, security grilles, or high-traffic doors. These are available in a trolly or jackshaft design (great for vertical or high-lift doors). Medium-duty commercial operators are best for businesses that need to use their doors less than 50 times a day. 


Industrial-duty commercial operators are the must-have openers for the toughest workplaces, like high-volume warehouses and manufacturing plants. Industrial operators are available in several robust designs, including trolley, jackshaft, and hoist. These heavy-duty openers are built to handle the most difficult working environments and lift doors 90 times an hour. 

Additional Operator Options and Accessories

Fire Door Release Devices

Fire door release devices provide a fail-safe release mechanism for fire doors and shutters. This gives your business the ultimate reliability exactly when it’s needed. We also provide more fire door accessories, including fire door operators, to give you the ultimate peace of mind that your fire door will work well in an emergency. 

Specialty Operators

Built to fit your business’s unique needs and specific applications, specialty operators provide ultra-fast, powerful, and quiet operation for your commercial doors. This allows you to increase the productivity of your business and keep traffic at a constant flow. Some specialty commercial operators can even operate up to 600 cycles per day, giving you maximum efficiency for your business. 

Remote Controls & Accessories

No commercial door system is complete without accessories that increase safety and efficiency. We provide safety devices, control stations, and warning devices to help you provide the best safety and security for your employees and customers.
