What’s the Difference Between All of These Openers?
It might be a little overwhelming to sort through all of the options when it comes to picking out a new opener. We have put together this little guide to help you out so you can easily see the difference between them all. These are the four main types of openers:
- Chain drive opener: This is the most common choice for home builders as they are strong, reliable, and affordable. These operate with a chain that rotates on the rail to move the operating mechanism of the door
- Belt drive opener: These operate just like a chain drive opener but have a belt instead of a chain. These are maintenance free but the belts can wear out unlike a chain
- Screw drive opener: This opener has a large screw rod that rotates down the rail to move the trolley which operates your door. These require little maintenance
- Wall mount opener: These are mounted on the wall directly beside your door. There’s no need for overhead hardware and it opens up the vertical space in your garage
How to See Which Opener You Need
If you need an affordable opener and you don’t care about noise level then go with a chain drive opener. If noise is a concern for you then go with a belt drive opener, which provides for nearly silent operation. A screw drive opener is a good choice for heavy lifting needs such as with reinforced doors.
One of the lastest openers is the wall mount opener and while it is the most expensive opener, it also comes with the most features. It is a good choice if you have cathedral ceilings or if you need the vertical space in your garage for storage. They are also the most silent opener on the market since there won’t be any vibration noises coming from the ceiling.
