In conjunction with the recent announcement that it has entered a national distribution arrangement with Marantec of Germany, leading Australian garage door manufacturer, Steel-Line has released two new top quality sectional door openers to complement its range ofBoss openers.
Marantec's Comfort range of openers, originally launched by the company in 1990 has fast become one of the leading automatic sectional door operators worldwide.
Steel-Line Garage Doors adds two Marantec Comfort models to their range; the Comfort 1000 and 800.  Both openers are identical except that the 1000 is a heavy duty model capable of lifting sectional doors up to 18 square metres (1,000 newtons of lifting force) and up to 16.5 square metres (800 newtons) for the 800.
Scott Halliday, Sales Manager Automatic Operators, The Steel-Line Group stated that "the Marantec openers we've added to our range means we now have two permanent high end, high quality models to accompany our Boss models which are at a lower price point. The two Comfort models which we have selected suit the Australian market perfectly and they are clearly top quality units based on German engineering.  At this early stage the models are being well received by our customers and I am confident sales will be strong in due course in the premium and heavy duty end of the market."
Mr Halliday went on to say "these two superb units operate on 24 volt AC and the popular 433MHz radio frequency and come standard with 2 x 3 channel hand transmitters and one x 2 channel wireless wall remote with extreme security of over 4 billion code combinations.  They possess electronic limit settings and the power heads are housed in very stylish and contemporary black casings.  Both models which are available in chain and an incredibly quite belt drive are fully supported by Steel-Line in terms of service and spare parts and possess a full 5 year motor warranty for residential applications and 2 years for commercial."
The two Comfort models are available to builders and home owners directly from Steel-Line branches or through their extensive reseller network around the country.
Steel-Line Garage Doors has company owned branches and resellers in every state and territory.

Boss Garage Door Operators

The BOSS garage door opener business was founded by Bob Kurzok and Paul Kurzok in 1980 in Brisbane. The original BOSS product was a patented two piece roller door opener, the RD1 which was manufactured in Brisbane. The BOSS opener products were sold through Steel-Line branches across Australia and through independent resellers.

After its success with its garage door opener BOSS formed a partnership with Guardian in China to produce a sectional garage door opener for the Australian market. The first product launched was the OL4, a powerful highly reliable AC sectional door operator. Since then BOSS has launched the OL6 which is a 1000 NM DC sectional garage door opener available with both belt and chain drive options featuring all of the latest technology in garage door openers including auto reverse, electronic and soft open and close.

In 2004 BOSS entered into an agreement to represent the Duraswing range of automatic gate openers in Australia. The Duraswing range is both cost effective and reliable and has the advantage of battery backup so that you are never stuck with closed gates during a power failure.

In 2012 BOSS was also able to secure the Marantec agency and now represents the Marantec product range in Australia. Marantec is a German company and is one of the global market leaders in garage door opener technology with a host of international patents and awards for its Comfort range of sectional garage door opener products.

The latest product which BOSS has lunched is a budget industrial shutter opener which can be used for both industrial roller doors and industrial steel shutters. BOSS also supplies a range of other third party products including ATA, Chamberlain, Grifco and GFA.

BOSS products are available through the Steel-Line Branch network located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Newcastle, Wollongong, Geelong, Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns and Darwin.
