Motors

The most reputable window and door manufacturers choose our motorized automation systems for their products, more than any other solution available on the market. Our precision automated systems are ‘ETL Listed’ and ‘UL325 Compliant’, allowing architects to safely specify our systems at the beginning of the project. Builders who want only the best automation and features like flexible adjustable speed technology (FAST/+) (also known as variable speed technology or VST), to perform a fast open or quick open, not to mention state of the art controls for the doors and windows they install, turn to us.

No other company can compare to the quality, reliability, and Customer care of Summit Automation.

Sierra

The Sierra motor is our newest motor and moves up to 3 operable panels (depending on weight). This motor has the slimmest profile of all of our current motors.

Peak/Everest

Peak

The Peak is our flagship motor moving a majority of the systems we automate. With 81 lbs of torque, we’re moving 6 to 8  panels depending on panel size and manufacturer.

Everest

The Everest is our largest motor at 150 lbs of torque moving massive heavy door panels. The Everest is designed to move door systems that are very heavy, very long, with an unlimited amount of panels. Before Everest, any very long and heavy door system would require two motors as a bi-part, not anymore!

Inverted or K2

When there is limited space behind either side of the door system (no stud bay or possibly only a glass curtainwall), all of our motors can be mounted as Inverted (upside down) or as K2 (horizontally mounted with an aerospace-rated precision automated gear box). Both Inverted and K2 can hold an incredibly tight tolerance with numerous extension shafts allowing motors to be placed immediately above the door or up in the rafters without worrying about shaft flexing.

FMS

The FMS is our retrofit configuration motor suitable for all three motors (Sierra, Peak, & Everest) and is perfect for concrete or post to post construction. If there’s no room for the motor the FMS bolts directly onto the backjamb and is the perfect solution to any limited space installation issues.

Apex

The Apex is for corner-less 90-degree door systems or unequal bi-parting doors. Basically, the Apex configuration works with all of our motor (Sierra, Peak, & Everest) systems and couples two motors together with a communication cable between control boxes to coordinate the open and close operations. Our motors can move an unlimited number of panels per side on a 90 degree or unequal bi-parting system.

Pivot

The Pivot motor is our elegant solution to moving all types of pivot doors for both Interior and Exterior applications.

Pivot Motor

The Pivot motor system can be mounted in two different configurations: It can be mounted above the door header, or within the head track of the door. This provides solutions for multiple Pivot door configurations and applications, making it a versatile solution with multiple options for elegance.
