Life automation gives you easy installation, high quality and safety.
The Probo PR60R kit contains the 24V Life PR60R garage door motor, the garage door automation track and two Life Dream transmitters.
This garage door automation system works with the following types of garage door:
What Type Of Garage Door Do You Have?
Horizontal track up and over solid garage doors
Solid doors that rise on horizontal rails inside the garage. These horizontal tracked doors have rollers at the top corners that run along the channel rails as they open. A counter balance spring is mounted on each side of the door.
Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional garage doors are not solid like up and over tracked garage doors. Instead, they are made from a number of horizontal sections that are hinged where they meet. Rollers at their edges run along tracks on each side of the garage door. These start at the edges of the garage door and run vertically, then curve into the garage and finish horizontally at the same height as the top of the garage door. A counter balance spring is installed on the top of the door frame. This lifts the door by cables mounted at the bottom corners.
Canopy Garage Doors or Vertically Tracked Doors
This style of garage door requires the use of the canopy door conversion arm which can be bought separately or as a specially priced bundled option here. These are solid doors with rollers nearer their base that run along a vertical track either side of the garage door opening. A counter balance spring is mounted to the top of the door frame.
Once you have used the guide above to confirm your garage door type is suitable for automation, check your garage door dimensions. The PR60R opener is rated for doors of no more than 7 square metres area, and a height of 2.24 metres. Taller doors can be automated with a longer rail. Please contact us for more details if you have a very tall door. Email email@example.com or call 03300 883 890
The motor has a traction force of 700N which is more than adequate for a standard garage door.
Any door to be automated must be in good working order. The door and tracks should be aligned so rollers run smoothly along them. A garage door automation system should never be installed on a garage door has become stiff or out of balance.
Garage Door Security
Please note that garages providing passage into the house can be a weak point in your home security. You are advised to fit security deadlocks on doors connecting the house to its garage. Garage doors and connecting doors should be connected to your house alarm by a qualified alarm fitter. The garage opener only provides powered operation of the door. It should not be considered as a locking device.
Sliding Gate Installation Key Facts
A minimum of a 6 Amp power supply is required at the gate.
Power should be supplied at the gate as per electrical regulations.
Sliding gate track requires a firm, level, flat surface to be bolted to.
Ideally, a solid concrete foundation should be laid.
· Be approximately 2 x the length of the gate
· Be approximately 300 mm wide
· Be level
· Not crack when track is bolted to it, the gate runs along the track or vehicles drive across it
The required depth of the track foundation and level of reinforcing depend on the ground below the foundation.
The position of the motor can be sited and cables for the motor and accessories can be run in the foundation while it is being laid.
Pillars Or Posts
Pillars or posts should have a minimum height as in the illustration showing how to measure your gates.
It’s the responsibility of the gate installer to carry out a risk assessment and to ensure that provision for required safety equipment is installed.
