eDrive +2.0

The eDrive +2.0 is the industry-standard for quality, durability, adaptability and intelligence. With numerous models to select from (depending on door size and cycles) as well as multiple expansion options the eDrive +2.0 is the logical choice for automating spring-balanced roller shutters and grilles;

  • Powerful range of motors with purpose designed gearbox for durable, reliable operation.
  • Intelligent logic system for exceptional adaptability and integration into the building ecosystem. Optional expansion board for advanced functionality
  • Automatic chain-engage mechanism for safe and easy manual operation in the absence of power
  • Absolute Position Encoder for reliable door positioning and improved safety. Motor is disconnected the instant the manual hand chain is engaged


The Grifco LR-Drive heralds the latest addition to the Grifco Light Commercial portfolio. It has been specifically designed for large and wind-locked roller doors. It is also ideal for shopfront roller grilles thanks to commercial terminals that allow dedicated open and closing;

  • Faster: LR-Drive opens a 2.4m high door in only 21 seconds. Fastest in its class!
  • Stronger: The powerful motor and gearbox can lift roller doors up to 28m²
  • Thinner: The incredibly thin operator requires only 45mm of sideroom clearance
  • Smarter: LR-Drive is myQ compatible and features dedicated inputs for open / close

With myQ technology, you can see if your door is open  or closed from anywhere in the world as well as control it*. You can also schedule to operate your door at certain times of the day and receive notifications when you desire.

* myQ requires Monitored Entrapment Protection (eg safety beams) to operate



The Grifco LS-Drive is the perfect high-cycle operator for sectional doors found in small carparks. Designed for up to 50 cycles per day, it is the ideal automation solution for small multi-tenanted applications. It delivers all the necessary logic configurations without any unnecessary complexity;

  • The quiet, powerful drive train delivers smooth and fast door cycles, with soft start and soft stop
  • Logic options can be easily configured (such as “open only” and “timer-to-close”) using the simple button panel
  • The extremely durable extruded aluminium rail is available in 2 lengths and features a clever mounting method and integrated cable management
  • The rail can be easily surface mounted for low ceiling carparks


With constant duty cycle, battery backup onboard and the industry’s best warranty, the new Grifco S-Drive is indeed the Smooth Operator. It is purpose built for high-cycle, highly demanding commercial sectional doors found in carparks, emergency services buildings and commercial tenancies;

  • The quiet, DC motor and purpose-designed gearbox
    deliver extremely smooth and fast door cycles, with soft
    start and soft stop
  • The integral logic boards offer ultimate adaptability to
    meet the demanding needs of carpark applications
  • The extremely durable rail and innovative sliding trolley
    have been engineered to meet the high-cycle demands
    of busy carpark doors
  • The operator has been thoughtfully designed for low
    ceiling carpark applications, with a low profile, lockable

Monitored Light Curtain

The Monitored Light Curtain is a genuine investment in safety and injury prevention. 21 intersecting LEDs criss-cross 2m of the door’s opening height and will stop and reverse a closing door.

The Grifco Light Curtain System is compatible with S-Drive and eDrive +2.0 operators with V2 software. Also compatible with mDrive and many other operators equipped with GLMe2 logic only (with V2 software).
