A Gliderol Roller Door will always remain a very safe garage door for you to operate throughout its life-span.

The Glidermatic GRD opener is the first operator of its kind especially designed for continuous sheet curtain doors, available exclusively from ABX.

This uniquely engineered unit will provide you with an economical, dependable, high quality operator for doors up to 5.0 metres wide and 5.0 metres in height.

The Drive Unit remains the only operator available with the orbiting drive motors fully housed within the coil of the door, and it requires only minimal field installation time as a result of this innovative design feature. The Drive Unit may be factory fitted inside the coil of the door or retrofitted to an existing installed door and comes complete with emergency chain hoist. Installation required only an additional 75mm of side room to that of a manual push-up door or the same space required for our direct or reduce gear ratio drive chain hoist.

Power supply required to the wall mounted Control Box is standard supply voltage single phase. All control circuits and wiring to the Drive Unit are a low 24 volt DC; a plug-in wire is supplied to connect the Drive Unit to Control Box.
The Drive Unit accommodates one or two 1/3 HP DC motor(s), according to door size. The Control Box features three buttons for the UP, DOWN and STOP functions providing convenient, safe and secure operation of the door.

Safety reversing and obstruction control is via the use of an optional PE Cell linked directly to the Control Box to interrupt the door function and by the use of Gliderol's patented obstruction detection system built into the control circuitry.
