Top-hung motor: what are the best solutions for opening?

The lifespan will depend on the quality of the motor and its maintenance, but high-quality motors, such as those you can find for sale here on Windowo, can last many years with adequate maintenance.

How much weight can chain motors move?
Wondering how much weight chain motors can move? In reality, this is an assessment that falls to the technician who installs the automation. It will take care of mathematically transforming the weight of the window into Newtons. In fact, each chain motor is designed to move a weight expressed in Newtons. To put it simply, the more Newtons there are, the more weight it can move.
Pay attention to the voltage of the bottom-hung chain motors!
Normally the same model of chain actuator is available in different voltage types. When purchasing a chain motor you will therefore have to consider whether to get an actuator with home voltage (230V) or industrial voltage (24V direct current). Then there are other countries, such as America for example, where the domestic voltage changes (110v).
Warning: if you get the voltage wrong you risk immediately burning the engine! Especially if you connect a 24V bottom-hung motor to your home plug. If you have any doubts, just to be sure, you can write to us.
