Genie®’s Commercial Operators for Sectional Doors

A commercial sectional door is an essential component of many businesses. Consequently, failing to open or close properly can be frustrating and affect production. When you purchase a commercial overhead door operator from Genie®, you get a system with a reputation for reliable performance.

Genie®’s automatic door operators are manufactured to meet the performance requirements of most commercial and industrial sectional doors. They provide precise control of your door system for years of trouble-free operation. Creative Door Services™ carries several commercial door operators, including the GCL-GT: heavy-duty gear head trolley operator and GCL-T: standard-duty trolley operator. Here’s an overview of these innovative systems.

Standard Features

The GCL-GT heavy-duty gear head trolley operator is designed for standard lift sectional doors that require up to 60-cycles per hour. The GCL-T standard-duty trolley operator is designed for applications that require up to 30-cycles per hour.

Both commercial operators have advanced technology and robust mechanical designs that set a new standard for productivity. They’re UL325-2010 approved and come equipped with the following standard features:

  • EZ Limit® electro-mechanical technology sets limits that stay synchronized even during a power outage
  • MultiVolt® voltage technology with the ability to pick the right voltage for the job site
  • A max-run timer that automatically adjusts to the door’s up and down runtime
  • A convenient 16-character LCD display with an intuitive setup menu that provides status and troubleshooting assistance
  • An advanced radio receiver that limits interface and allows you to individually add and delete up to 50 Intellicode® transmitters directly from the display
  • A two-year, 20,000-cycle warranty
  • A drawbar disconnect via pull cord for manual operation


The GLC-T has a TensiBelt® auto tensioning poly-V J-belt primary drive, while the GLC-GT has a heavy-duty worm gear running in an oil bath. Both have a chain and sprocket reduction secondary drive.

Furthermore, both operators are pre-wired to accept monitored entrapment devices, such as photo eyes, single or three-button control stations, and external interlock switches. The GCL-GT and GCL-T both have an adjustable clutch to help protect against door and operator damage, 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.


Genie® has a broad line of electric door operators suitable for new constructions, retrofit applications, and special operations.
