  • Dynamic braking system, in closed position, will fight back if unauthorized push back is attempted.
  • Audible alarm and relay out trigger when unauthorized entry (push back) is attempted.
  • 25 ft #40 Nickel Plated Chain & Brackets.
  • Programmable virtual limit.
  • Optional magnetic limits sensors available.
  • Patent No. US 9,406,207 B2
