Garage Door Opener Types
If you plan on replacing your garage door opener, four major garage door opener types stand out:
- Chain-Drive Openers —The most reliable mechanism for opening and closing a garage door is the chain drive. High quality chain openers offer an inexpensive, dependable option for both homes and businesses. Because they are among the most common, we carry a variety of these at Dream Garage Door & Gates. However, these openers tend to open and close loudly. This may make them undesirable for certain residential garages.
- Belt-Drive Openers—Belt drives offer a level of dependability that rivals that of chains, but offer the advantage of being silent. By replacing the thick metal chain with an elastic rubber belt, these drives offer smooth, quiet operation ideal for small homes or garages with adjoining rooms attached.
- Screw–Drive Openers—These garage door openers are generally the least expensive of the four major types. They work well in areas with year-round consistent temperatures, but do not function well when exposed to changing weather.
- Jackshaft Openers—Instead of delivering power to the door through a chain or belt, jack shaft openers operate directly on the torsion spring on either side of the door. Therefore, these openers save space and operate quietly. This makes them ideal for any property where space is limited.
