Commercial door operators serve vital purposes, including powering doors that provide security, personnel control, and product protection services. When choosing a door operator for commercial use, quality, performance, durability, and function must all be considered.
The information below will help you understand if a motor, jackshaft, trolley, or hoist operator will work best for powering the movements of your commercial door. All of the following operators are available from LiftMaster.
For commercial door applications that are used in high frequency on a daily basis, motor operators are the common choice because they’re designed to function effectively on a high-demand basis. Motor operators are known for providing strong and durable door operating solutions in high-traffic commercial applications.
Jackshaft operators feature a pulley system designed to power the retracting and lowering functions of rolling grill, shutter, and even industrial sectional doors. They’re often used for commercial doors that require vertical retraction or lift. Theses operators are available in light, medium, or industrial options for use on commercial doors of various weights and designs.
Trolley operators are primarily used in conjunction with standard lift commercial sectional doors. Because sectional doors come in a variety of styles, these operators are also available with powering capabilities in light, medium, or heavy-duty situations.
Hoist operators are versatile door operators meant for use in medium to heavy industrial applications. They’re often used to power commercial doors, like heavy steel rolling doors and grills. Hoist operators also provide functional power solutions for commercial-grade industrial sectional doors that require vertical or high lift.
