Garage Door Opener Types

- Belt Drive Garage Door Openers: use a steel-reinforced rubber belt for smoother, quieter, faster operation. We advise regular maintenance check ups because these types of openers can be negatively affected by heat or humidity.
- Chain Drive Garage Door Openers: use a hefty chain, very bicycle-like. This is the popular choice for standard aluminum doors. Chain drive garage openers are strong, less likely to slip, are more durable, and are budget-friendly.
- Screw Drive Garage Door Openers: are compact in size, ideal for lower ceilings. These powerful and reliable openers require consistent, but minimal maintenance. They do not squeak or clank. This budget-friendly opener is perfect for wider, heavier doors, and moves a little smoother and slower than other types.
- Wall Mount or Jackshaft Garage Door Openers: designed to be attached to walls. They use a rope and pulley system with a tension spring to move the door up and down. They are easier, safer, and ideal for a cathedral or high ceilings over 10 feet and large vehicles.
- Smart Garage Door Openers: Wi-Fi enabled, offering a wide range of monitoring, control and customization options, including: remote access and alerts, smartphone compatible, smart home integration, Bluetooth speakers, an adjustable fan and dual-laser parking-assist modules.
