Caution: It is recommended that you have a low voltage electrician, or trade member familiar with gate installations to install the operator. You may call us or the manufacturer to see if there is anyone in your area familiar with the Franklin Autoswing. Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware is not liable for any damage that occurs during install, and replacements are the sole responsibility of the installer and customer. The manufacturer does carry a warranty for any defects or issues that are from manufacturing only and will have to be tested by the manufacturer’s technical team before sending replacements.
Are you looking for a reliable opener for your swinging carriage doors? Look no further! The new Franklin Autoswing® model is here. Brilliantly engineered, this state-of-the-art automatic swing garage door opener offers quiet operation and delivers superior torque.
As America’s premier builder of carriage doors, Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware developed the Franklin Autoswing Opener with its European manufacturer directly, tailoring it to suit carriage doors. The Franklin Autoswing Opener will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
The Franklin system is mounted just above the doors, leaving the ceiling clear of any track system overhead, facilitating accent lighting and vertical lifts for a more usable, attractive space. Each low-voltage motor is housed in a sleek enclosure featuring a keyed knob for manual override. Once installed, the Franklin Autoswing Opener is ready to operate with minimal programming. However, there are many custom programming options available for this swing garage door opener including delayed opening, outswing or inswing configuration, decelerated closing, one-door partial pedestrian opening, password protection, and more. Please call us if you have questions about your specific application.
While we recommend a professional installer, many builders, contractors and homeowners install the Franklin Autoswing Opener successfully. This swing garage door opener is easy to install, with step-by-step, on-screen instructions to walk you through initial setup. Whether you are a homeowner or professional installer, your full warranty applies. .
