Paratrak Garage Door Motor


The Paratrak Roll Up Garage Door Motor is a first of it’s kind. The motor uses equal force distribution to open & close a roll up door. This unique concept overcomes the coning and jamming that side mount motors are susceptible too. The smooth centered drive reduces strain on the door, which increases reliability.
