Types of Garage Door Openers

There are three main types of garage door operators:

  • Belt-driven: Belt-driven garage door openers use a metal-reinforced rubber belt to operate the door. Although they aren’t the cheapest option, belt-driven garage doors are reliable and boast quiet operation, which makes them ideal for both homes and commercial projects.
  • Chain-driven: A widely used type of garage door opener, chain-driven garage door openers are one of the most affordable types. They also offer highly reliable performance.
  • Screw-driven: These types of garage door openers have a steel rod that runs on a lifting device. Although they are noisier than both belt-driven and chain-driven garage door openers, they can be an affordable option. Screw-driven garage doors are also low-maintenance.

Below we have included a quick reference guide to the openers we install.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy a new clicker/remote at the shop?

Yes. Our showrooms carry an extensive selection of transmitters for garage doors openers. If your transmitter is no longer supported by the original equipment manufacturer, we can usually provide an after-market alternative.

Will you mail a new remote to me?

Sure. We can ship a new transmitter (or any other parts) to any address.

What should I look for in an electric opener?

When looking at openers you need to consider three things: strength, safety and security. Openers come in two strengths: 1/3 horse power or 1/2 horse power. Safety is very important on openers to protect people and pets from being injured. Any opener should come with at least these three safety features.

  • Safe-T-Beam — photocells at the botyom of the door shoot an invisible Safe-T-Beam across the opening. If this invisible Safe-T-Beam is broken, while the door is closing, the door will reverse.
  • Contact Reverse — the opener should reverse when the door comes in contact with an object, even if the Safe-T-Beam is not broken. The industry standard is to have the door reverse off of a 2×4 laying flat on the floor.
  • Timed Reverse — the opener should automatically stop and reverse when the door is closing if it fails to close completely within 30 seconds.

For security, openers should have a locking feature that prevents thieves from opening the door by hand while the opener is attached. Another security feature is rolling code technology. This allows the code sent to you opener to roll and change every time you use your handheld transmitter, utilizing billions of different code combinations. High-tech thieves will be unable to duplicate your code to break into your home.

What additional features should I look for in an opener?

Residential openers come in for different types: Chain Glide, screw drive, belt drive, and side mount. A Chain Glide opener is the most popular type. It uses an alternating current (AC) motor and chain to operate the door. A screw drive opener is quieter using either an AC motor or a direct current (DC) motor and a screw system to operate the door. A DC motor keeps a constant electrical current running through the motor producing softer stops and starts. The belt drive opener is the quietest using a DC motor, and a Kevlar belt to operate th door. Kevlar, ounce per ounce, is five times stronger than steel. The side mount opener is used in special cases where there is not enough room for a regular opener. It uses an AC motor and a direct drive chain system to open and close the door from the side. The Kevlar belt drive is the quietest and requires the least amount of maintenance as both the Chain Glide and screw drive will require lubrication.
