By adding these units to its existing line of BBU capable openers, Genie
offers the most complete line of models to fulfill the growing demand
for this feature.

The battery backup add-on to these additional models was in response to
recent legal changes in California which mandate that all garage door
openers be equipped with a BBU at time of installation. These new models
are in addition to Genie’s existing units which were already equipped
with battery backup capability to meet the SB-969 California mandate.

The same great features of their related models come standard on each
opener, including a powerful 24V motor which lifts doors up to 500 lbs.
and 8 feet in height at a rate of up to 7”/second.

“Changes in local, state and federal requirements such as California
Senate Bill 969, can cause our dealers concern,” said Josh Funk, Genie
residential product manager. “We always want to be sure we do our part
to keep our product line up to speed with changing laws. With these new
openers, Genie now offers BBU capability throughout its entire opener
line-up, giving plenty of options for choosing the right one for the
job.”
