    Installation Requirements

    In order for the 3800 or 8500 to be installed, the door must:

    • Use a one inch torsion bar

    • Use four to six inch drums

    • Be no taller than 14' in height, 18' in width, and the area must not exceed 180 square feet

    • Use a track with a minimum 12 inch radius

    • Weigh no more than 650 pounds

    • Have a minimum of 7" between the side garage wall and the end of the torsion bar

    Compatible Door Types

    The 3800/8500 will work on the following types of doors:

    Standard Lift: The 3800/8500 will work on a standard lift garage door using a miniumum of 12" radius track up to 32" radius track.

    High Lift: A highlift door, starts and upward movement prior to the door turning to a horizontal state. The highlift door works well with a 3800/8500 because the lower panel is already in the vertical tracks.

    Follow the pitch: The 3800/8500 works well with a follow the pitch style door and track. A follow the pitch is a door which already has a downward angle on it as it descends to the closed position. These types of doors typically use highlift drums.

    The 3800/8500 is compatible with quick turn brackets, as long as the track radius is larger than 12".

    The 3800/8500 will not work on the following types of doors (Incompatible):

    Low Headroom Dual track doors: Dual track doors are opened by pulling the top of the door back towards the rear of the garage. The 3800/8500 opens doors by cranking the torsion bar and pulling the door up.

    Low Headroom Doors that use reverse wound drums: The 3800/8500 is designed to lift the door by cranking the torsion bar and pulling the cables up. Because the cables are reversed, when the torsion bar is cranked the cables will unwind.

    Low Headroom Rear mounted spring doors: The 3800/8500 opens the door by cranking the torsion bar and pulling the door up. A rear mounted door does not have a torsion bar located over the top of the door. Instead, the torsion bar is located near the end of the horizontal door track. Also, the cable tension monitor will not fit due to the angle of the cables.

    Doors equipped with Wayne Dalton Torque Master Springs: Wayne Dalton Torque Master Springs are self contained within a spring tube. This spring tube may look similar to a traditional torsion bar but is much larger in diameter.

    Full vertical doors: Full vertical uses a tapered drum that when matched with a 3800/8500 has the potential of ripping the cable tension monitor off of the wall. If a full vertical door is connected to 3800/5500, the user may find nusance reversals and or cables thrown. The 3800/8500 was not tested or approved for use on full vertical doors.

    High lift doors with more than 54" high lift: Dependent on diameter of drum

    ANSWER: I do agree with the Staff Answer and advise you call them. They are very courteous and above all helpful. My father and brother in law have a total of five of these units installed and I have always liked the idea of no tracks, brackets, and belts or chains. I recently purchased a house with an attached garage, and the opener needed updating. I bought the 8500 and installed it in short order. The installation couldn't be easier.
