Residential Door Opener


Residential door openerThe Gentleman Door residential automatic door opener is a low profile, pneumatically operated unit intended for home use. The door opener can be installed by most handymen or mechanically inclined individuals without problem. The door opener comes with a hand held remote but can also be activated through wall mounted buttons, infrared devices or a number of other activating devices.

    The residential door opener also comes with a pneumatic strike release (see image below) which allows the door to latch and lock but still open when activated. The installation of our automatic handicap door opener will not alter how the door functions when idle. That is to say, for everyone who uses the door manually, the door swings freely and there is no resistance to push against. It is ideal for the front door of a house or any swing door where it is important that the door swings freely under normal use, but is automated for the individual in the wheelchair or scooter.

    The double acting automatic door opener is a cost effective handicap access solution. Its simple and elegant design makes it the most rugged and reliable door operator on the market.  Due to the inherent design of the product it will provide barrier free access on any swing door.

Strike Release Detail

Strike Release

Key Benefits:

  • Swings Freely - There is no resistance when the door is opened manually.  It is the only opener that has this feature.
  • No Maintenance
  • Very Quiet Operation - Since it uses low pressure pneumatics there is very little noise when it is activated. You might compare the sound to the automatic doors in Star Trek. AIR SOURCE SOLD SEPARATELY.
  • Low Profile - There is no large header above the door, making the smallest profile opener on the market
  • Although installing any door operator in new construction is easier than retrofitting, the double acting operator can be installed to any door without any reconstruction.
  • Secure - The door strike release with the operator allows your door to stay locked, and still allow you to open the door with the remote control, much like a garage door opener. You can let people into your house or apartment without worrying about security. Your door will stay locked at all times unless you unlock it.
  • Door Maintains Normal Manual Operation - This operator does not interfere with the normal operation of the door. When used manually it acts just as it did before the personal door operator was installed.
  • Latches Securely - Due to the design of the product, it securely latches upon closing.
