There are 3 parts to the patent-pending Propel Sliding Door Automation System:
1. The Drive System
2. The Side Cincher System
3. The Lower Floor Guide System
All parts of our system are located inside your building, out of the weather. By using these 3 systems in unison, the Propel Operator will work on virtually any type of framed structure with nearly any type of horizontal sliding door.
The Drive System
consists of the patented industrial motor, the control board, the header drive rail, the door arm and the radio frequency remotes. The Motor door arm and header drive rail push a whopping 180lbs of torque while the control board memorizes and â€œthinksâ€ about the travel path of the door to ensure that smooth operation and safety go hand in hand.
The Side Cinchers
control the back side of the door when it returns to the closed position and it secures the door to the building when the door is closed. This prevents the door from being sucked away from the building in high winds.
The Floor Track
guides the door smoothly during the opening and closing cycles. The track keeps the door moving in a straight line and prevents the leading edge of the door from being blown around by the wind. This system also ensures that your bi-parting doors return closed in a direct line so that both doors line up in the center of the opening to guarantee that they properly mate together.
The Propel Operator was designed specifically for single and bi-parting sliding shed doors when installed on almost any type of building. Itâ€™s the most effective, least expensive way to automate your doors.
