  1. The Genie® GCL-GT: heavy-duty gear head trolley operator is designed for high or full-lift sectional and rolling doors with up to 60-cycle/hour duty requirements. It can open doors up to 24 feet tall. The GCL-GT is re-wired to accept monitored entrapment devices, such as photo eyes, single or three-button control stations, and external interlock switches. Its adjustable clutch protects against door and operator damage.

    The GCL-GT also features precision radial ball bearings throughout the operator powertrain and a two-inch heavy-gauge rail system with a roll-formed angle and nylon chain guides. Its max-run timer automatically adjusts to the door’s up and down runtime, and its timed-close feature can be programmed from two seconds up to five minutes.

    This product is UL325-2010 approved and comes equipped with EZ Limit™ technology that sets limits that stay synchronized even during a power outage. It also features MultiVolt™ voltage simplification technology customizable to your operations.
  2. The Manaras MGT industrial-duty trolley operator has a high starting torque continuous-duty industrial type motor. It’s designed to lift doors that are 40 feet tall and is capable of 25 cycles an hour or 80 cycles a day.

    The Manaras MGT has an opening speed of up to 10 inches per second and a drum-band type solenoid brake for precise and responsive stopping. The baked-on enamel finish provides long-lasting corrosion protection, and the slide-off cover makes it easy to access parts and components. Moreover, the Accu-cam® feature allows for easy, one-handed adjustment of the door’s limits.
  3. The LiftMaster® HCT premium trolley operator combines industrial strength with the convenience of remote monitoring and control. This operator is ideal for commercial doors up to 12 feet tall that weigh up to 700 pounds. It has an opening speed of up to 11 inches per second and features the Posilock® system that automatically powers the operator and returns the door to the closed position when it’s pushed off the closed limit.

    The backup battery provides standby power to allow operation when the power is down for up to 72 days or 112 cycles.
  4. The SDI Safedrive® direct drive operator is suitable for balanced and unbalanced sectional doors, rolling steel doors, rolling grilles, and more. It has safety features for reduced failure and operates independent of speed or direction. The SDI Safedrive® is maintenance-free, self-monitoring, and has excellent dampening characteristics for smooth and quiet door operation. It’s capable of speeds of up to 100 inches per second when used in high-speed door applications.

    The LiftMaster® HCT is also equipped with myQ® technology, which enables you to connect your operator to the internet via your current business network so you can open, close, and check the status of your overhead door from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. With myQ®, you can also set schedules to open and close your gate and receive real-time notifications if your gate is left open, so your facility is never at risk.
