Digidoor Automation


The Digidoor brand occupies a unique position in the South African garage door and automation industry, as its only end-to-end manufacturer with a truly national footprint, specialising in the production of doors, hardware and garage door motors.

As a born and bred local manufacturer and a truly South African company – producing many of their own garage doors, mechanisms, proprietary hardware and components, including electronic units and related items locally from start to finish.


The Digidoor brand – developed the first product to carry the Digidoor name. This was an electronic garage door opener created for the residential market. It was launched in 1984 and won the Shell Design Award for “Good Product Design” in 1985. The brand grew from strength to strength. Winning the Design Institute’s award for good industrial design in 1994 for its DigiDoor II product.

When 2008 saw the initiation of the dreaded concept of “load-shedding” the company was able to quickly introduce its Digidoor III operator. This was a first of its kind. It had battery back-up and a full chain system. Offering home-owners the assurance that their assets would remain safe even during power outages.

This very popular device was complemented in 2012 by the launch of the Digi-One door operator. It took the market by storm as a result of its ability to offer 1,000Nm of torque. The same security features as the rest of the range, but at a more affordable cost – bringing quality garage door automation within easier reach of virtually all South Africans.
