Are you looking for one the safest, quietest, smallest side mount DC operators in the industry today? Look no further! The Zap DC garage door operator is your answer. The Zap features SafetySense technology, which is one of the industryís most advanced obstruction detection systems available. This type of technology will allow the Zap to detect an obstruction on any part of the door, whether itís opening or closing. This means a safe garage door operator not only for you, but for your door and its surroundings.
The 8815-3-SD is a medium duty commercial model operator with a 1HP motor. Itís capable of running an all one piece sheet steel door with a 1Ē or a 1 5/16Ē dead shaft (door shaft does not move when the door does), up to 240 square feet in size, and 1200 lbs. in balanced weight. Like all the Zap model operators, the motor assembly only contains the motor, two pulleys and one belt, which means no chains or sprockets making all that unnecessary noise in your garage or shop.
The 8815-3-SD only requires 1 ĹĒ of side clearance where it installs on the end of the door barrel, so limited space is not an issue. The entire operator is Nema 4 rated, which means itís resistant to water/moisture. The 8815-3-SD offers many built in program features that are standard. These include auto close timer, cycle counter, and service due reminder.
You can also incorporate a multitude of auxiliary items to the Zap 8815-3-SD. These include, but are not limited to interior/exterior lighting, additional wall controls, swipe card devices, dock equipment, motion sensors, and alarm systems. The list goes on and on.
Installation of the 8815-3-SD is as simple as it gets. It only requires one person to install the motor assembly on the end of the door barrel and door shaft. Nothing mounts to the wall, jamb, or header area. Unlike traditional operators, you wonít be needing the scissors lift, two people, or a welder for this installation. In fact, the 8815-3-SD can be preinstalled on the door before the door is even installed. This applies to new door installations only. The Zap control box is even easier to install. Just four screws to fasten it to the wall near the door, and power it up by plugging it into a nearby outlet in your garage or shop (electrical pigtail required). Now itís just a matter of running the door open and close two times with the 8815-3-SD and it will set itís fully open and closed positions for you. You just stand back and watch!
