Standard Security Systems


The Protector System

Project an invisible light beam across the garage door opening and automatically reverse the door if anything interrupts the beam while the door is going down. Sensing technology will stop the door from closing if contact is made with a person or object. Opener light turns on automatically when The Protector System’s infrared beam is broken.

Manual Release Handle

Manual release in case of power failure.


  • Security+ 2.0 rolling code technology assures a new code is sent every time the remote control is used.

Cable Tension Monitor

Specifically designed to maintain accurate tension and eliminate “cable throw,” which occurs when the cable slips off the drum.

Power Lock

Power Lock – once the garage door goes down, it’s securely locked with the power lock, which is similar to a deadbolt and ensures the door cannot be forced open.


Garage doors and garage door openers can be dangerous if not installed and verified by a professionnal and not used properly. Children must be supervised by an adult when they are inside or in proximity of the garage.
