What is a ChickenGuard Extreme Unit?
Our beefiest door opener – The ChickenGuard©Extreme – just got better, with the same great features as the Premium, but with its heavy duty motor able to cope with an impressive 2kg/4lbs capacity makes it ideal for larger, heavier doors and commercial coops, to keep foxes and other predators out of your hen houses.
New features include: Automatic door calibration to make the installation process as simple as possible; Automatic stop feature which protects your chickens from getting trapped as the door lowers and also prevents the string from getting tangled if there is an obstruction; Choose from 4XAA Alkaline batteries or DC power (9V to 12V – cables not included*). Battery warning light visible from 100 meters away. Backup lithium cell battery (CR1220 Lithium cell battery not included) that will keep the clock working when the batteries run our or while replacing them; New self-diagnosis capability with an alert message appearing on the screen until the required action has been taken.
An integrated LCD screen ensures it is easy to set up and alter timings when necessary. You won’t need an 8 year old to programme this door! And we have even designed extra big buttons so you can programme the unit with your gloves on in the winter – we really do understand all about bad weather.
All electronics are enclosed in weatherproof casing, ensuring reliable operation in the most extreme conditions. We confidently provide a no-quibble 3 year guarantee, although we obviously build our units to last for longer than that.
