1175 Overhead Operator

The DKS 1175 Overhead Gate Operator is designed for high traffic underground parking applications serving gated communities, apartment complexes, commercial buildings and industrial sites. An optional cover is available.

1175 Overhead Operator

Industrial Strength – Parking Structure – Low Profile

The 1175 overhead gate operator is designed to operate overhead type vehicular gates mounted on jamb track or jamb type hardware. Overhead gates are typically used in underground parking applications where headroom is minimal. The low profile design and quiet operation of the 1175 makes it ideal for these applications.

This Operator is not designed for residential applications and should never be used to operate overhead sectional garage doors.

The solid steel frame and belt-driven gear box make this Operator one of the quietest in the market today. Shown with optional cover.
