There are two main components to a garage door opener, the motor type, and the drive type.

Garage Door Opener Motor Types

There are two types of motors out there for garage door openers, AC and DC power. Garage door openers powered by an AC motor are typically louder, larger and heavier since they require more components. Garage door openers powered by a DC motor offer the most power and are the smoothest running motors in the industry. They are quieter and lighter and allow more features on the opener like soft start and stop which reduces wear and tear on the door and motor.


Garage Door Opener Drive Types

The drive type is simply the way your garage door travels along with the guide when it opens and closes. The guide is the long rail that is attached above the center of your door which connects to your opener. Within this guide is a screw, chain, or belt which moves the trolley along the guide to open and close your door.


What is a belt drive garage door opener?

A belt drive garage door opener is super quiet.  Our belt drive opener models are some of the quietest garage door openers you can buy. These openers are especially great for garages that are attached to the house. We've all heard what a noisy garage door opener sounds like, with a belt drive opener you'll experience less sound and vibration when the opener is operating.  A belt drive is typically available as an upgrade over a chain because the belt drive garage door opener is quiet because it's belt-driven.  The use of a chain in the chain drive opener and the use of a screw in a screw drive opener are noisier than the reinforced steel rubber belt that is used on the belt drive opener.  The belt opener design allows smoother operation which reduces the overall noise level. Smoother operation means there's no jumping off the door and fewer vibrations. Not only is it quieter but the steel-reinforced rubber belt is very strong and durable.

 


What is a screw drive garage door opener?

Screw drive garage door openers will give you the most power with the fastest operating speeds.  If you have a large garage door measuring 14 ft. high or one-piece doors that are up to 8ft high, then these are the openers you'll want to use. This is because our screw drive openers feature an exclusive direct drive system that transfers more power from the motor without using a gear reduction system.


What Is A Chain Drive Garage Door Opener?

A chain drive garage door opener​ uses a chain to move the door open and closed. It is suitable for most garage doors. Chain drive has been around for many years and will last a long time with routine maintenance. Chain drive openers are typically available at an opening price point.
