Whats NOT included ?
We do not include the labor or the air source. We recommend using the California Air Tools compressors with our products for the simple reason they are durable and extremely quiet as far as compressors are concerned. Depending on the number of openings a day and number of doors to be automated will determine what compressor we can recommend to you.

How does it work?
The Single Actor is without a doubt the simplest door operator on today’s market in our opinion. It is operated in the following fashion.
1) A person depresses the button on the remote control
2) The solenoid that turns the air on allows the air to enter the system
3) Immediately after depressing the remote the latch release will protrude of which will release the latch that is holding the door closed.
4) A split second later the door will then open and remain open until you depress the remote a second time turning the air off.
5) At this point the air bleeds and the mechanical door closure will then close and relock the door.
