Meet the Dominator - Two Great Automatic Door Opener Options for your Commercial Sheet Doors

Increasing Efficiency with Automatic Roll-up Doors

Selecting the right operator for your commercial sheet door is no small task. You want an easy-to-use operator that heightens both convenience and security - and that's where the Dominator comes in. In this blog, we'll dive into the advantages of automatic roll-up doors, as well as the key features and benefits of the two offerings in the Dominator line: the EasyRoller 14 automatic door opener, and the Hiro, made for larger doors.

It's no secret that door automation is a popular enhancement to nearly any application - from residential garages to commercial and industrial buildings. While there's a lengthy list of reasons for its high demand, ease-of-use and heightened security remain consistent factors. And did you know that automatic door openers can even be designed with innovative features such as soft start and soft close to increase the lifetime value of your overhead door? These are just a few reasons why it's so common to find automatic roll-up doors in commercial settings such as garages, warehouses and industrial facilities. Let’s explore some key features and benefits of the two Dominator models mentioned above.


Intelligent Safety System

With the right automatic door opener, you can take advantage of smart, simple and secure features such as the intelligent safety system. This feature ensures that the operator will stop or reverse the door if contact is made with an obstruction while moving, to reduce the risk of injury or property damage. 

Soft Start / Soft Close

Features like soft start and soft close are designed to reduce the stress on both the door and the operator. This is done by ramping speed up or slowing it down at the start and end of each cycle. The soft start and soft close features increase both the door and the operator's lifetime value, allowing you to enjoy your automatic roll-up door for years to come. 

Door Profiling 

The door profiling feature helps the intelligent safety system do its job. This is done by learning the amount of power needed for different stages of the door's travel during set-up, and it's constantly re-profiled. 

TrioCode 128

Secure and reliable transmitters are important when it comes to door automation. The TrioCode 128 remote control ensures secure and reliable access. It transmits on three frequencies to defeat radio interference and uses a 128-bit encryption protocol (with trillions upon trillions of random cones) for the ultimate security. 

Best of all, both Dominator automatic door openers are easily retrofittable onto dead-axle sheet doors. This means you don't have to go out and spend thousands of dollars automating your application.

Now let’s take a look at the specific details of each model in the DOMINATOR line of automatic door openers:
