This automatic closing kit for La Corlavoise henhouse automatically closes the door of your henhouse after dark and opens it in the morning.
Adaptable to all traditional doors (with hinges on the side).
Equipped with a solar cell to recharge the included battery.
Dimension of the gatekeeper, box of 13x9x5 cm (length x height coil included x depth).
Working principle of the automatic closing kit for poultry houses La Corlavoise :
In the morning, when the brightness is sufficient, a gear motor releases the braid so that the door opens.
A mini door-closer (stainless steel return spring) opens the door and keeps the braid taut.
In the evening, after nightfall (time needed to be certain that all the hens have returned) the gearmotor lowers the wire until the door is closed and held on its stop.
It is possible to delay the time of opening and closing using jumpers on the printed circuit. This option is detailed in the user manual available at the bottom of this page.
This kit has been designed and is manufactured by us in France in the Jura.
Robust and waterproof recyclable ABS case (IP 54).
The mini door-closer is made of recycled PET, it is the plastic that is used for plastic bottles. With a thickness of 6mm, it is perfectly resistant to UV, water and frost. Made from recycled material, it is recyclable. The spring and the screws are made of stainless steel and are also perfectly resistant to external aggressions.
Solar cell and high capacity LIPO battery for total autonomy.
Brightness sensing by solar cell for automatic adjustment of opening and closing time based on actual sunrise and sunset time.
Oversized gearmotor with all of its pinions in hardened steel for a very long life.
Braid with a resistance of more than 68kg.
It is possible to carry out a test cycle and to adjust the length of the braid thanks to a tactile button which makes it possible to keep the case well sealed.
The braid coil is outside the case so as not to let in any humidity.
Delivered with a pre-assembled mini door-closer based on a stainless steel spring and its accessories.
Delivered with all the necessary hardware and a 12-page color user manual.
The parts and labor warranty is 2 years. The availability of spare parts is 10 years.
As an option at the top of the page, an extended warranty is possible
Optional on our site: piton screws to deport the module in case of lack of space.
The module must be in the sun from time to time when the weather is nice (Not facing due North, nor just behind a tree or a house that hides the sun all day).
Autonomy in bad weather is about 45 days.
New circuit board, new features for your chicken coop door:
Possibility of delaying opening in the morning until 3 hours after sunrise. Useful if, for example, you have a noisy rooster that you don’t want to release too soon.
It is now possible to adjust the closing time in the evening according to the sunset time if your solar cell is due East or due West.
You can change the type of operation: go from a door with hinges on the side and a mini door-closr to a guillotine-type door while keeping the same automatic closing module.
Use of a LIPO battery (as in Smartphones) much more reliable and durable than the rechargeable batteries used so far.
Continuous measurement of the motor torque to detect obstacles and if the door is at the end of its travel.
An ON/OFF button allows you to deactivate the module, for example when you have chicks that are too small to go out.
The use of more modern components has made it possible to further reduce the consumption of the module. In addition, it requires less brightness to start charging than previous versions.
Origin of the name “La Corlavoise” :
This version of automatic chicken coop closure was the first to be invented, in 2015, although many improvements have been made since then, the first version was already solar with light detection.
It was invented in Courlaoux. A Corlavoise is an inhabitant of Courlaoux, so it is a nod to the place where the product was invented and manufactured.
This product meets the Made in Jura – France charter
