The Genie® Company Introduces New Line of Medium Duty Commercial Operators
  • EZ Limit® – Push-to-set limits, replacing the thumb wheel mechanical limit system

  • Disc Brake – Includes the 24 VDC disc brake used on the current heavy-duty line

  • Upgraded Trolley Rail – The 2″ angle and quiet carriage used today on the heavy-duty trolley operators will now be used

  • Quiet Operation – New quiet through-shaft motor with dual ball bearings and isolated electric box allows for quiet operation.

Additionally, the Z-Series models are rated for 15 cycles per hour, to maximize their performance, and include an internal Intellicode® receiver capable of learning and storing up to fifty transmitters.  

“We’re thrilled to bring this new Z-Series medium-duty line to market and provide our customers with a new industry standard in commercial operators,” said Mike Kridel, President of The Genie Company. “Whatever our commercial customers need in a medium-duty operator, the Z-Series line can deliver.”

These new models from The Genie Company are now available for purchase via our Genie Professional Line wholesalers and dealers, and replace the X-Series medium-duty operators.
