The GT710/8710 Low Energy ADA Operator is designed to automate nearly any new or existing door. The GT710/8710 operates in both automatic and manual modes with a hydraulic back-check that protects the door and mechanical operator from damage when forced open in windy conditions or when manually operated. The Low Energy performance, combined with adjustable opening and closing speeds, reduces energy usage to help offer a prompt return on your investment.
The GT710/8710 is approved for use on fire door assemblies rated up to 3 hours. It’s engineered for interior and exterior use.
Our literature section includes technical resources on our low-energy ADA operator for you to understand its mechanics better. To ensure your ADA operators’ performance, review our technical references, technical bulletins, product manuals, architectural drawings, and more.
