Motor Operation for Fire-Rated Doors
You often see motor operators in parking garages, distribution facilities, paint booths, and car washes. Motor operation is the most effective and consistent method of opening larger, higher cycle doors and offers the following benefits:
- Longevity: Offers the most consistent method of operation, and as such, maximizes door longevity
- Ease of Use: Can link to one-touch, or even no touch, opening triggers such as a push button station or a loop detector
- Safety: Accommodates entrapment devices such as photo eyes and sensing edges
- Remote Activation: Can be integrated into master building controls to operate doors remotely
- Durable: Can be designed to withstand weather, chemicals, or even explosions
NOTE: Motor operation does require power to the opening and enough clearance to mount the motor. In the event of a power outage, auxiliary operators can be used (push up or chain, depending on door size and configuration).
AlarmGard® Plus Motor
AlarmGard Plus is a chassis operator that is part of the AlarmGard system. It is a failsafe operator that safely closes a fire door in response to an alarm signal or power outage. When the alarm is cleared or power is restored, the door will automatically reset itself, saving time and money. In addition to all of the standard AlarmGard features, the AlarmGard Plus also has an auxiliary chain hoist and a battery back-up. The battery back-up prevents the door from closing for up to 8 hours in the event of a power failure.
HP: 1/2, 3/4
Voltage: [115 V single] [230 V three] [460 V three] phase service
Recommended for when manual testing and resetting is impractical or not desired, when fire doors are installed in pedestrian through fares, recessed areas and where nuisance drops are to be avoided due to temporary power outages.
The AlarmGard motor is the standard operator within the AlarmGard system. It safely closes the fire door in response to an alarm signal or during a prolonged power failure. When the alarm is cleared or power is restored, the door will automatically reset itself.
HP: 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, 1 1/2, 2, 3, 5

AlarmGard® Tube Motor
Get the convenience of motor operation in a low profile design. Because the AlarmGard Tube Motor is concealed within the shaft assembly, it’s ideal for openings with tight clearances around the coil area or when you need to neatly conceal the operator and drive components without adding a bulky and unsightly motor cover. The AlarmGard tube motor operator can be used on Fire Doors or Counter Fire Shutters.
Voltage: 115 VAC/50 Hz, 230 VAC/60 Hz or 230 VAC/50 Hz**
Activation Input: 24 V
*Size limit varies by door configuration and gauge requirements.
** Special Order: Extended lead time will apply.
