Rollup Door Motor Service Los Angeles
Some people mistakenly assume that it is better to install the rolling door first, and in the future to add the electric motor. Although that in some cases they might be right, it is most times it is not like that. The installation of automated roll down Iron Gate is different than the installation of non-motorized Iron Gate, which will be operated manually. If the Iron Gate will be motorized, the spring we will use for the installment might be different from the sprung we will be using for a rolling door in Los Angeles which will be motorized in the future. Also in terms of costs. Installing the rolling Gate motor at the same time as installing the rollup door itself will cost less than to do the motor installation in steps.

Each Iron Gate require a different motor, and a qualified rollup doors installer in Los Angeles should be able to determine which one is the best operator for a specific steel door. The size of the rolling door (and the material the Iron Gate was made of – affect the weight of the curtain), make the difference between the different motors.
