Merlin SilentDrive Essential MR655MYQ

Merlin SilentDrive Essential MR655MYQ has gained recognition for its reliable performance and affordability, offering users a hassle-free operation. It incorporates advanced safety features like slow start/stop, auto reverse, and interference-free remote controls.

Compared to its higher-end counterpart, the MR855MYQ, the MR655MYQ is a slightly scaled-down model with limited additional functionalities. Notably, it does not have the option for a battery backup and is designed for slightly smaller doors, supporting openings up to 16.5m² instead of 18m².

The included E970M remote control enhances security with its rolling code encryption called Security+ 2.0. This technology generates a unique code every time the button is pressed, ensuring a high level of protection against code-grabbing devices. 


Premium Automatic Safety Reverse: State-of-the-art garage door system features an advanced automatic safety mechanism that ensures optimal protection. Whether the door encounters an obstruction while closing or needs to stop while opening, it will automatically halt and reverse its course.

Automatic Force Sensing: Innovative garage door opener is designed with an intelligent automatic force sensing feature. With every operation, it carefully monitors and adjusts the force required to open your garage door smoothly. This ensures that your door operates effortlessly and minimises strain on the system.

Manual Release: In the event of a power outage garage door system includes a convenient manual release option. By activating this feature, you can manually open your garage door, providing uninterrupted access even during unforeseen circumstances.

Bryan came out to fix our door which had failed during the warranty period. He installed a new motor and I was able to take the car out of the garage again. Even though it was a quick turnaround he didn’t charge. Would recommend to anyone

Thank you team for the over the phone support in securing the house over the weekend!! Beth at Curl Curl
Recommend Pittwater Garage Door Repairs above all others. They are responsive, knowledgable and willing to go the extra mile to get your repairs done quickly and effectively. I had an issue with my tilt door garage where the fob wasn't speaking to the motor. I also didn't have a key to the safety lock on the outside of the garage. There was no other way into the garage, and as you'd expect, my car is in the garage meaning getting to work became a real hassel. I had called around to several places before settling in with Pittwater Garage Door Repairs. I was promised a time for a local competitor to come around and fix it, and when they didn't show up, I called to book in with Pittwater Garage Door Repairs. The guys there got straight to me and fixed my door, got the motor going and all within the hour. To say I'm impressed with their service, is to say the least!

Couldn't have been happier with the service from Pittwater Garage Doors!! Price was very reasonable and given up front, before I booked the job. They communicated with me well, arrived bang on time, had the door fixed and adjusted efficiently and were friendly as they did it. It was the first time I have used them, but will not be the last!
