Having worked on our family owned and run poultry farm for over 20 years and being the third generation, I knew there had to be some alternative solution to manually opening and closing our 7 double ended sheds spread over 20 acres, morning and night, seven days a week.
With an electronics background I knew there had to be an easier way so I set about to find something, anything to help me make my life just that little bit easier.
The doors that were out there were just not right and simply just wouldn't fit onto our existing sheds. So I put my electronics knowledge to use and developed a lightweight, rust free, aluminium door that could be available in Australia, used anywhere and is weather resistant. I also didn't want to be changing batteries every other week so I incorporated a solar panel into the equation to keep my battery charged and that is how I got the solar powered chicken coop door that should last forever. I have designed the door so that it comes pre assembled ensuring the product is easy to install for those who can follow a few simple instructions.
We have the Hen Safe Door installed on our chicken farm, which also homes other large birds such as ducks and geese which have adapted to the doors opening and closing times as poultry are creatures of habit and are always home by dark!
From the doors that we have supplied to other customers we have had nothing but positive feedback especially how our customers don't have to rush home at night to get the chickens in before dark during the winter months.

Made from lightweight aluminium and all parts are replaceable.
It's solar powered, with battery back up.
The Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door operates through a programmable time clock which is connected to a lithium ion battery pack. We use a 5 watt solar panel with a 3 meter cable that needs a minimum of 5 hours direct sunlight (during winter) to keep the battery pack charged at 100%.
The battery pack has a specifically designed BMS (Battery Management System) to prevent it from losing charge or over charging. This ensures your door should never lose power, nor will you have to change batteries every year. The battery holds enough charge to continue operating for two weeks with no solar input.
The timer, which has also been specifically designed for easy use, allows you to program the door to open and close at what ever times you choose on what ever days you want. It also has a manual override button allowing you to control the door manually if desired.
The Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door frame is made from lightweight aluminium which ensures it can never rust and the door won’t jamb due to corrosion. The Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door measures 920mm (H) and 450mm (W) with a door hole opening of 350mm x 350mm, and has a protective lid which is also made from aluminium for easy access to the time clock, motor and battery.
The Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door is easy to install using the four predrilled tabs which can be used on any coop, shed or cage.
Each Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door and solar panel is tested and retested again before it is securely wrapped and boxed. The Hensafe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Door comes with a 12 month warranty and we offer technical support 6 days a week.
" We installed this door about 18 months ago. Setting the opening and closing times is very straightforward. It has been wonderful. We had to do a bit of trimming of the nearby tree to make sure the panel got enough sun. No problems so far. Been a real boon when we go away as the neighbour does not have to lock the chooks away, just has to check their feeder and collect the eggs every couple of days".

" Just a quick email to thank you for your help. My order arrived today with the battery and the bonus solar panel which I really appreciate. The solar door is a great product which I recommend to my friends and people whom I sell my chooks to. It can be rare to find such good customer service that totally turns around a situation, so again thank you".
