Attention electrical pros,
The sparkie I usually use is unavailable for a few months due to illness. I am bidding on a commercial job installing an automatic door opener for disability access.
I know it's impossible to quote accurately without seeing it, but if someone would be kind enough to give me a ballpark on the electrical cost with materials (opener, wiring, etc) it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys.
Hard to give you a fair and accurate quote. New construction? Or retro fitting? Wood construction, or steel? Picking up the opener from an existing circuit? Direct dedicated line?
Anyone giving you a quote without seeing the job is unqualified. I'm sure ur current "sparkie" would tell you the same!
I have to agree with George...
Most of the ones I installed over the years were done in conduit, usually with the conduit work going in prior to the brick / stone facade where the remainder of the circuit was fed from a circuit.
Wiring to the controller in many cases is interlocked with the fire / security system as required by the classification of the building. Depending on the existing system, the controls and the pushbutton could either be 120vac or 12/24 VDC.
So this installation may require several trips and coordination with the local fire department and building inspector.
