Types of Garage Door Openers

Garage door openers come in different types with different mechanical features and usability. As a result of technological advances, door openers continue to advance in features and functionalities. The following types of garage door openers are currently available in the market.

  • Chain-drive opener

These door openers have chains connecting the trolley to the motor. They are usually very loud due to the metal to metal contact. However, their prices are lower.

  • Jackshaft-drive opener

They are installed with a 24v DC motor. They are used in large doors and have the advantage of keeping the ceiling free for other uses such as overhead storage. They are therefore built for garages with low or high ceilings. They are, however, very expensive.

  • Belt-drive openers

They use a rubber belt, are quieter and are characterized by smooth motion.

  • Direct drive opener

They have a stronger steel rail with a stationary chain. With only one part that moves, they are the quietest of all available door openers.

  • Screw-drive opener

This type of door opener uses a trolley, threaded steel rod, and motor system only. It makes a lot of noise and requires little maintenance attention.

New Technological Upgrades in garage Door openers

Advancing technologies have seen a great improvement in garage door openers over time. The available technological upgrades in garage door particularly include:

  1. Integration of a “rolling code” security feature
  2. Reduction of noise
  3. Power backup using an emergency battery
  4. Smartphone access

Door Repair Service for Your Broken Garage Door Opener

When your garage door opener brakes, it exposes your valuables to insecurity, and you may remain locked out or inside for an unknown period of time, which comes with a lot of inconveniences. Our experts will solve this by first unscrewing the old broken door lock. Remove the screws, attaching the door lock to the door cylinder.

Once the opener is removed, 1800 Garage Door Repair experts will inspect the lock system and identify the level of damage caused. We will replace the cylinder with the appropriate size and brand of a door cylinder or opener knob. We will always ensure the cylinder is screwed up more securely and that your garage door opener is safe.

Whether your garage door is ruined and cannot open at all or not opening up with a remote, 1800 Garage Door Repair has the solution and will make sure you can use your garage door again immediately. Call us today.
