Life PROBO PR80R kit for automating garage and sectional doors up to 9 square metres
Life automation gives you easy installation, high quality and safety, all at great prices.
The Probo PR80R kit contains the 24V Life PR80R garage door motor, the garage door automation track and two Life Dream transmitters.
This garage door automation system works with the following types of garage door:
Horizontal track up and over solid garage doors
Solid doors that rise on horizontal rails inside the garage. These horizontal tracked doors have rollers at the top corners that run along the channel rails as they open. A counter balance spring is mounted on each side of the door.
Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional garage doors are not solid like up and over tracked garage doors. Instead, they are made from a number of horizontal sections that are hinged where they meet. Rollers at their edges run along tracks on each side of the garage door. These start at the edges of the garage door and run vertically, then curve into the garage and finish horizontally at the same height as the top of the garage door. A counter balance spring is installed on the top of the door frame. This lifts the door by cables mounted at the bottom corners.
Canopy Garage Doors or Vertically Tracked Doors
This style of garage door requires the use of the canopy door conversion arm which can be bought separately or as a specially priced bundled option here. These are solid doors with rollers nearer their base that run along a vertical track either side of the garage door opening. A counter balance spring is mounted to the top of the door frame.
Once you have used the guide above to confirm your garage door type is suitable for automation, check your garage door dimensions. The PR60R opener is rated for doors of no more than 9 square metres area, and a height of 2.24 metres. Taller doors can be automated with a longer rail. Please contact us for more details if you have a very tall door. Email [email protected] or call 03300 883 890
Any door to be automated must be in good working order. The door and tracks should be aligned so rollers run smoothly along them. A garage door automation system should never be installed on a garage door has become stiff or out of balance.
Garage Door Security
Please note that garages providing passage into the house can be a weak point in your home security. You are advised to fit security deadlocks on doors connecting the house to its garage. Garage doors and connecting doors should be connected to your house alarm by a qualified alarm fitter. The garage opener only provides powered operation of the door. It should not be considered as a locking device.
