Heavy Duty & Low Energy ADA Operator

GT500 & GT8500 / Automatic

The GT500/8500 Heavy Duty/Low Energy ADA Operator is designed to automate nearly any new or existing doorframe. The side load header access panel simply pivots up out of the way and locks into position to permit quick install or service. The Low Energy performance, combined with adjustable opening and closing speeds, reduces energy usage to help offer a prompt return on your investment. The GT500/8500 is engineered for both interior and exterior use.

Our literature section includes technical resources on our heavy-duty automatic door operator for you to better understand its mechanics. To ensure your ADA operators’ success, review our technical references, technical bulletins, product manuals, architectural drawings, and more.
