INSTALLATION GUIDE FOR MAGNAGLIDE AIR OPENER
(IMPORTANT: READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE INSTALLATION)
PRE INSTALLATION INSPECTION:
1) Test the door for proper balance and smooth operation. If door is not balanced or is
binding, the operator will not work properly. Note: counterweights and torsion springs
a re under extreme pressure and can cause serious injury or death. Adjustments and
installation should be per formed by a trained professional.
2) Check the clearance requirements for your operator. Horizontal mount operators need 4”
above the highest portion of the door to the ceiling or the nearest obstruction on the
ceiling such as lights, beams, pipes, etc. This measurement is taken with the door in the
open position. Vertical mount openers need at least 5” from the side of the track towards
the wall for clearance.
3) Make sure that you have compressed air available and 110 volt electricity for the air
operator control box.
4) Check the packing list (included in your hardware box) for all necessary parts. Notify
Airlift Doors immediately if anything is missing. Check your serial #’s stamped on the
operator carriage to make sure the serial numbers match those listed on the packing list.
Example: MG 104, MG 111, MG 135.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
1) Air openers require high air pressures to operate. Make sure that any time you are
installing or servicing your air openers you have the air turned off and all the air is
drained out of the cylinders before connecting or disconnecting any air lines. Failure to
do so can cause serious injury or death.
2) Torsion Springs and Counterweights are under extreme pressure. Do not attempt to
install, adjust, or service unless you are a trained professional or are assisted by a trained
professional. Do not attempt to service any counterbalance system without the proper
tools. Improper handling of counterbalance systems can cause serious injury or death.
3) All openers must have safety devices such as electric eyes, reversing edges, etc. Failure
to have them installed and working properly can cause serious injury or death. All safety
devices must be checked regularly to ensure proper operation. Any damage to persons or
objects caused by failure to install safety devices or properly maintain safety devices will
not be the responsibility of Airlift Doors.
4) Open and close travel speeds can be manually adjusted with all air openers. Airlift Doors
strongly recommends setting your close travel speed to a slow and safe travel speed.
Closing any door too fast can result in the door closing on persons or objects and can
cause serious injury or death.

MagnaGlide Vertical Mount Installation Guide
(REFER TO STEP 7....VERY IMPORTANT)
When Fastening lift bracket P/N MGV1014 to the door
make sure that the operator carriage is slid all the
way down. Before fastening, ensure that door is in
the fully closed position. If either of these is not
done, carriage will come uncoupled form the cylinder.
Step 1) Place the MagnaGlide cylinder on a flat surface and install top bracket and bottom bracket.
(Part # MGV1012 and # MGV1011) Note that the bottom bracket is shorter than the top bracket.
Fasten the brackets to the operator using ¾” lock washer and nut, but do not tighten with a wrench at
this time.
Step 2) Assemble the pusher spring (P/N # MG1002) to the back side, or side closest to the wall of
the top bracket using ¾” nut and lock washer. Do not tighten at this time.
Step 3) Install ¼” NPT X 3/8” hose fitting (P/N # 35007) in both ends of the cylinder.
Step 4) Close the door completely and use a vice grip to lock the door down if it is not already
equipped with a slide lock.
Step 5) Decide which side of the door the operator will go on. Measure 5" from the floor and make
a mark next to the vertical track on the wall.
Step 6) Stand the operator up and align it as close to the vertical track as possible. Now lift the
operator up so that the top of the bottom bracket is at your 5" mark and secure the operator to the
wall and track. (Note: ¼” track bolts go through the bracket and the track. Use wood lags, concrete
anchors, or self tappers to anchor the brackets to the wall depending on what type of surface you are
mounting on).
Step 7) Install the operator lift bracket (P/N # MGV1013 on diagram) to the carriage of the
MagnaGlide using stainless steel 5/16” X ½” hex head bolts. (Note: bracket goes around the track
towards the door).
Step 8) Install the other lift bracket (P/N # MGV 1014) to the door using 7/16” self tapping screws.
Be sure that the slide holes on the two brackets line up. Secure the two brackets with 3/8” X 1”
carriage bolts and nylon lock nuts. (Important: Tighten the nuts, but do not tighten all the way so
the brackets can slide without causing any binding on the cylinder carriage).
Step 9) Adjust the operator in or out to make sure that the MagnaGlide cylinder is parallel to the
track the entire way. This is very important to ensure that the operator will not bind. Tighten the
3/4” nut on both the upper and lower brackets to lock the cylinder into position.

Step 10) Adjust the pusher spring in or out to align the pusher cylinder knob with the carriage of the
operator. Tighten the 3/4” nut to lock it into place.
Step 11) Mount the control box to the wall. Recommended height is approximately 4’ off the
ground so it is easily accessible. Note: Control box will need 110 volt power and compressed air
run to the box.
Step 12) Using 3/8” poly air line, run enough line to reach from the control box to the cylinder. The
top hole on the right side of the box goes to the front (nearest to the door) fitting of the operator (P/N
# 35007). The airline from the bottom valve or hole of the control box goes to the air line
connection at the top of the operator. Note: Both the operator and control box have quick connect
air line fittings. Once measured and cut to desired length, the ends of the air line can be easily
connected by pushing them into the fitting. Lines can be removed by pushing in on the very end of
the fitting while pulling on the air line.
Step 13) Once all your connections are made, you can charge the air line from your compressor to
your regulator. You can adjust your air pressure through the top knob on your regulator. By turning
the knob, you can increase or decrease your air pressure. To decrease your pressure, you should turn
the knob counterclockwise. To increase your air pressure, you should turn the knob clockwise. To
start, you should set your gauge to read 40 lbs of air pressure. If your door opens too slowly, turn
your air pressure up. Note: You should never exceed 80 p.s.i. If the door will not operate under 80
p.s.i. you have a mechanical problem and should check over all door hardware.
Step 14) You can easily adjust the speed of the door by using the flow controls located on the side
of the operator control box. There is an exhaust port on the top of the main air intake line as well as
one on the bottom. The bottom flow regulator controls the speed of the open travel while the top
flow regulator controls the speed of the down travel. The speeds of either travel can be adjusted by
turning the flow regulator clockwise to slow the door down or counter clockwise to speed it up.
Note: It is very important to have your door close at a very slow and safe operating speed. Failure
to do so may result in the door striking objects or persons and may result in serious injury or death.

Trouble Shooting For
MagnaGlide Air Powered Openers
Scenario: The operator is sliding with jerky motions
Solution: Spray WD-40 or JB-80 on the outside of the stainless steel tube. Also add oil
to the inside of the cylinders to lubricate the piston seals. (See maintenance guide for
details)
Scenario: Door opens too slowly
Solution: Check the air pressure. The pressure should be between 40 and 80 p.s.i. If the
air pressure on the regulator gauge reads o.k., then adjust the flow control on the side of
the control box. Note: There are two flow controls in the box. The bottom flow control
adjusts the open travel speed. To speed up the travel, turn the flow control
counterclockwise a full turn and test the door. Repeat until door operates at desired
speed.
Scenario: Door closes too fast or slow
Solution: See steps to above scenario. Note: Top flow control adjusts the down travel
speed.
Scenario: Door goes down when you push the up button or vice versa
Solution: Switch the airlines coming out of the right side of the control box
Scenario: Door does not sit level on the ground
Solution: This is not an operator problem. Check your door cables to make sure they
have not slipped off of the drum.
Scenario: Door does not shut all the way to the floor
Solution: Adjust the length of your drawbar arm by removing the bolts holding the
straight piece and the 90 degree bend and placing them in new holes.
