Commercial Door Motors
Automation is not limited to residential garage doors only, commercial roller doors and sectional doors – as found in shopfronts, warehouse entrances, carparks, and on loading docks – can also be motorised. As commercial doors are generally larger and therefore heavier than residential garage doors, specialised motors are required that have sufficient strength to reliably and safely lift the door.
Available Near You
With a national network of B&D To You Mobile Garage Door Showrooms, and dozens of Accredited B&D commercial door Dealerships throughout Australia, you’ll find it easy to arrange for a free consultation and quote to have B&D commercial roller doors, shutters, or sectional doors installed at your business, or to learn if your existing installation supports being retrofitted with a B&D commercial door opener.
Our commercial door motors come equipped with all the essential features needed in a business environment, however the following add-ons are also available:
- Tri-Tran+ Premium Remote Controls – most of our commercial door openers are supplied with two Tri-Tran+ Premium remote controls, but additional remote controls can be purchased at any time. Our Tri-Tran+™ advanced encryption technology limits interference from other wireless devices, making them the ideal transmitter to use with our motors.
- Wireless Safety Beams – all of our commercial door openers support up to three safety beams. However, some only support a single wireless safety beam, with the other two being wired beams, so always refer to your manual, or contact our Technical Support team on 1300 769 850 before adding safety beams.
- Smartphone Control Kits – Operating your commercial motor using your SmartPhone offers the ultimate in convenience. Currently, this capability is only available with the Hiro GDO-12 door motor.
- Key Switch - a simple, two position keyed switch allowing for greater control over the opening and closing of commercial roller doors using the Hiro GDO-12 or TORO GDO-10 door openers.
Safe, Tough, and Quiet
B&D’s commercial door motors have been developed to offer the same safety, security, and speed benefits found in our residential garage door openers, along with quiet operation. However, this range is more powerful to easily manage opening and closing doors that are much wider, taller, and heavier, multiple times each day. More importantly, our commercial door openers include features that offer unique benefits in a commercial environment, such as programmable control panels that allow the motor to be integrated into other security networks. Most commercial door motors include as standard a stop and reverse function that reverses the direction of the door if it hits any obstruction, but in any high-traffic workplace you would want safety beams that – when the beam is broken – prevent the door from closing at all. And all B&D commercial door openers support the use of up to three safety beams, offering a far higher level of safety, on top of some commercial door motors including an emergency stop button.
All B&D commercial door motors support the use of our Tri-Tran+™ transmitters, allowing you to provide multiple employees with a way to automatically open or close any roller doors, shutters, or sectional doors with a compatible opener installed. However, for businesses that close for a period of time, such as for a seasonal break at the end of the year, the vacation mode feature found on some of our commercial door openers is critical, allowing you to easily lock out all but one master transmitter until the end of the break.
