Tech Tip     


Before ordering your AO19 door operator it's always a good idea to examine the intended installation site. Be sure the door leaf swings freely and is in good shape. Make notes of header conditions so that you are aware of what type of fasteners will be required. Be sure to review the theory of operation with the end user to eliminate surprises later. If you have any questions about the AO19's capabilities, please call Tech Support at Detex.
