Inertia Sliding Operator


Air-Lec Inertia sliding door operators are fast, safe and dependable. This compact two-fisted operator uses one arm to quickly slide large doors, then gently, but firmly checks that motion with the other. Available for sliding doors from five feet to 30 feet wide, speed is easily adjusted and internal cushioning prevents slam.


  • Commonly used on vehicle traffic doors and on industrial warehouse doors

  • Can be used anywhere with a large sliding door

  • Available for sliding doors from 5-30 feet wide, and up to 3000 lbs.



Air-Lec staff recommend the mechanical contractor provide an air-line of not less than one-half inch pipe and a minimum of 0.30 cubic feet of free air per cycle of 80 psi within five feet of the center of the door opening. A shut-off valve should be installed on the air line to each door opening.


Every door opening requires one door operator per door panel, one control kit and one filter regulator kit. Extra control stations are available where more than two control stations per opening are desired. A dehydrator is recommended when excess moisture is present.
