The AOCM Ceiling-Mounted Automatic Opener is unlike any other. With its patented German engineering, this opener is uniquely suited to operating out-swing carriage doors. The AOCM is durable, surprisingly quiet and very easy to install with our installation manual specifically written for this unique out-swing application.
As America’s premier builder of carriage doors, Real Carriage Door Company*** needed a solid solution to conveniently operate carriage garage doors and the AOCM has proven to be an affordable, reliable solution for many years. As the experts in carriage doors and the openers to drive them, we are convinced that the AOCM will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
This AOCM offers quiet operation and unique design through its patented technology. A travelling 24V DC motor attaches directly to the outswing doors via push rods, offering extremely quiet operation. This opener uses the smallest number of moving parts of any opener on the market, making it exceptionally durable. Fully automatic force adjustment will not allow an obstructed door to burn out the motor. A soft start and soft stop makes for smooth operation and meets or exceeds UL 325 safety standards. The AOCM requires zero maintenance and comes with a lifetime warranty on the whole unit, plus a 2-year warranty on all accessories.
The AOCM includes:
• Clear installation instructions specific to swing-out operation written by the experts at Real Carriage***
• Heavy duty 24V DC motor for maximum performance
• Rail (10’) for ceiling mount application (NOTE: Rail does not have to be mounted horizontal but can slope up reasonably from the opening mount.)

Flat Track Hardware
Flat Track Sizes:
"How do I choose a track size?"
Simply double the size of your door(s) to determine the proper track length. Example: a 36" wide door will need a 6' track. Example: (2) 36" wide doors will require 12' of track.
"Tell me more… "
Choose from a variety of powder coated finishes or raw steel. Our powder coated finishes consist of a durable baked-on finish. All powder coated finishes have a matte finish.
Quantity of doors on track:
Please tell us how many doors you wish to hang on this hardware track.
The Bottom Guide keeps the door steady. The T-Guide is a floor mounted guide that requires a groove in the bottom of the door. The C-Guide is a floor mounted guide that cups the bottom of the door and is also available in an adjustable option. The Wall Mounted Stay Roller is a wall mounted guide that works with doors from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" thick. This is an ideal guide for extra thick doors and exterior applications.
"Why do I need to specify a door thickness"
We ask for door thickness so we know what size of carriage bolt to include in the hardware kit. Carriage bolts attach the hanger to the door. If your door's thickness falls between sizes, simply round up to the next available size.
End Stop Option:
"What is an end stop"
End stops keep the door from flying off the track. Standard end stops are designed to fit at the far ends of the track, secured by the lag bolts. Adjustable end stops slide along the rail and tighten down with set screws wherever you wish.
"Tell me more … "
Choose from a variety of wheel options such as a matching steel wheel or a black Hush wheel. Or upgrade to a stainless steel wheel or a stainless steel Hush wheel. Hush wheels are made of a high quality, durable polymer and make for smooth, ultra-quiet operation.
This refers to carriage bolts (which attach the hanger to the door) and lag bolts (which help secure the track to the wall). Choosing your fastener finish lets you customize the look of your hardware kit to your liking.
Box Rail Mounting:
"What does this mean?"
Please specify whether you want to mount the hardware kit to the wall or the ceiling so we can ensure you receive the proper mounting brackets.
Here you can specify whether you would like to order lag bolts through us or supply your own. A variety of finishes is available for those who wish to order lags through us. Save a trip to the hardware store with our high quality lags.
Opener Battery Backup:
The battery backup is an add-on that allows you to operate the Franklin opener despite power outages.

The Wireless Outdoor Keypad is an add-on allowing you to enjoy exterior access to your doors without a remote. Operates up to 10 doors.
