Whether you are looking to upgrade drives on existing doors...

Whether you are looking to upgrade drives on existing doors, deal with a breakdown or helping your customers comply with the latest regulations GfA has it covered with our range of replacement drives.

The extensive GfA range of drives for roller shutters means we can offer competitively priced alternatives to any old, obsolete or competitor drive on the market.

Easier to fit, low level control and high speed -just some of the benefits of choosing a GfA drive.

Other Manufacture direct drives replaced with Safedrive®

Competitor’s direct drives can be replaced with a GfA SI Safedrive® with the added benefit of our plug and play system, no need for an electrician to hard wire the drive on site or pay a premium for pre-wiring.

GfA direct drives will replace many mechanical limit drives, providing an added benefit of low-level hand chain operation as well as low level controls. No more dealing with hand crank override at height.

The GfA alternative is often faster than competitor models – to take one example our SI 75.15 750Nm Safedrive® runs at 15 rpm compared to 10 rpm for known competitor drives used on similar applications.

Flange / foot mount motors replacement

Flange and foot mounted chain drives can be replaced with drives from our SE and KE ranges.

Couple these benefits with the versatility offered by GfA control panels and the opportunity to upgrade both drive and controls to meet the latest regulations and we believe you will have a winning formula for your customers.

Replacements for Garog motors
