Typical Automatic Door Opener Installations:

Surface Mounted Door Opener

The door opener is mounted on a wall or door frame. It allows for a push or pull configuration.

Most common installation type.

Concealed Overhead Swing Door Opener

The door opener is mounted in a header directly above the door. The operator is the top pivot of the door assembly and controls the door swing with a more hidden look with no arm.

Works very well in an all glass door configuration where the weight of the door could be excessive and controlled without a problem.

Inground / Infloor Swing Door Operator

The door closer is mounted into a case which has been mounted and concreted into the floor slab.

The operator acts as the bottom door pivot and bears the weight of the door while controlling the operation of the door. Works well for custom oversize over weight doors.
