A government facility included a larger hanger. They had an ongoing problem burning out motors on the overhead door drive. The down time and high maintenance cost was unacceptable.


The existing drive system was very compact and did not offer any simple installation locations. As with all overload applications identifying the proper torque setting is critical.

This unit was able to drop right in place with the adjustable feature allowing them to fine tune their disconnect point.

If you have a difficult overload problem, give us a call.
