Up and over and sectional: garage doors are divided into two categories and FAAC has developed automation systems for each one. They can adapt to any requirement for residential use or more frantic, heavier industrial use.
If you are looking for an up and over solution, usually consisting of a sheet metal surface, sheet metal and wood or sheet metal and insulation, the model you are looking for is the 550. It allows you to lift and open the door via side levers or arms, thanks to a balancing system consisting of counterweights or springs.
If you are opting for a sectional solution consisting of horizontal panels that open by sliding vertically on specific guides, your model is the D600. Even in this case, the door needs to be balanced by means of springs.
There is always an ideal model depending on the type of garage door you need to automate.
If you prefer fixing it to the up and over door and require the quietest movement: go for the 593. If you need a ceiling solution for a sectional garage door opening which opens very quickly, the D700 HS is ideal.
All 24V actuators for garage doors can use emergency batteries to guarantee smooth operation without intervening on the emergency manual release. The D1000 also offers reliability in an actuator designed for several openings and closings during the day.
All the automation for garage doors are technologically advanced in terms of safety as well as energy savings. Residential solutions are usually fitted with the safety function that, in the presence of an obstacle, it commands the door to open again immediately.
FAAC evolves without forgetting environmental requirements by providing electronics that can minimise consumption. To learn more about SAFE&GREEN go to the relevant page.
