Garage Door Opener Installation

Garage Door Opener Installation

 

(1). Pre-installation recommendations

 

1. garage door must be able to be lifted and closed easily by hand and without much effort. a well balanced & sprung door is critical for proper installation.
2. the garage door opener can’t compensate for a badly installed garage door and should not be used as a solution for a “hard to open” door.
3. if the unit is being installed on an existing door, make sure any existing locking devices are removed or warranty will be void.
4. an approved outlet must be installed near where the opener is begin installed.
5. there should be a minimum gap of 30mm between the bottom ofthe chain drive rail and the top of the garage door at its closest point. (refer to figure 1 .)

 

important note: as for additional safety rules, we strongly recommends the fitting of photo electric safety beams on all installations.

(2). Mount wall bracket and door bracket (figure 2)

wall bracket – close the garage door and measure the garage door width at the top and mark the centre. locate and mount the wall bracket 2cm-15cm above the door on the inside wall. (depend on the actual installation space).
door bracket – fix the door bracketto a structural part of the door as close to the top edge as possible.
