Meadville Overhead Door stocks a wide variety of residential operators to enable us to suggest the best fit with your garage door in a variety of price ranges. These operators have built-in safety features which utilize safety eye sensors to prevent your door from closing on a child, pet or other obstruction.  Some models offer battery back-up.

We sell two major brands of operators: Lift-Master and Linear. We service most brands.

The Chamberlain Group makes Lift-Master and Sears operators. One or more remotes can be programmed for each operator and a remote can also be purchased which operates one to four different garage doors. Newer remotes have rolling codes which change every time they are used, for added security. A keypad mounted outside your door allows you to open your door by entering a P-I-N code.

Lift-Master offers several different operators with a belt or chain drive. Belt operators are “whisper” quiet. Less expensive operators have a one year parts warranty and a two year motor warranty. More expensive operators have a five year parts warranty and a lifetime warranty on the motor.

Lift-Master also offers the Model 3800 residential jackshaft operator, which is mounted at the side of the door.  These operators are ideal for garages with low ceilings or other space restrictions.  They have a DC motor for quiet operation and smooth start and stop.  Other features include standard remote operation and a built-in light.  These operators are also available with built-in battery back-up, which enables your operator to function if power is out from a storm or other reason.

Linear Model LD050 1/2 Hp heavy duty chain drive openers have a lifetime warranty on the motor, 5 years on mechanical parts and 1 year on electronics. They offer a 5 minute courtesy light and easy door release if the power goes out.

 Our larger commercial door installations require commercial operator applications.

We offer the Lift-Master Model MT medium-duty trolley operators for standard lift sectional doors, the Model T industrial-duty trolley operator, the Model ATS advanced trolley system, and the Model MJ medium-duty jackshaft operator.

The Lift-Master Model 3900 is a light duty commercial jackshaft operator which is mounted at the side of the door.  Unlike its residential counterpart, there is no built-in light and remote operation is an additional option.
