Automatic Chicken Door Openers
Which automatic chicken door opener do i need?
All door openers have the facility to manually open and close the door as well as their automatic functions.
If you only want to open and close the chicken door according to the time of day the AS standard door opener is for you. It will lift up to 1 kg.
If you want to open and close according to light level or time, or a combination of these then the ASTi Premium is the door opener you'll want. This unit will lift up to 2kg.
If you live somewhere that is either hot or cold then the AST Extreme is the one to choose. This has uprated components and weather proofing to give it an operating range of -30c to +50c. It also has the strongest motor lifting up to 4 kg.
All these units are selfcontained and need to additional limit switches etc so installation is as simple as screwing it to the chicken coop and attaching the cord to the door.
Will the automatic door opener fit your house?Almost certainly it will. If you have any doubts please send us a photo and approximate dimensions using the "helpdesk / contact us" button at the top of the page and we'll advise which parts you need to have an automatic.

We no longer stock the VSB range of door openers as we have switched to a UK built model from Chicken Guard.
We have found in the past that the combination of the VSBb with a timer was the most popular (even those that ordered the VSBb on it's own normally came back for the timer later. The AST Premium and the AST Extreme both offer light and time operastion in 1 box at a lower price than the 2 part VSB system. The AST Extreme is our "export" model as it copes with extremes of temperture not seen in the UK but common in Australia and the USA.
