Belt Drive Garage Door Openers

The first type of garage door openers we'll cover here are the openers in our catalogue that utilize a technology called a 'Belt Drive'. These openers are known for operating significantly quieter as they use a rubber belt to transfer the opening forces from the motor to the door. This minimizes noise and moves the door in a much smoother motion; eliminating chain noise and any jerking associated with the chain links moving over the gears in a chain drive garage door opener (mentioned below). Although these system are normally more expensive, they offer a level of quiet that is unparalleled.

Chain Drive Garage Door Opener

Chain drive garage door openers, as the name implies, utilize a chain belt to pull the garage door up, and gently lower it down. Some of the advantages of this system is the relative cost savings compared to a belt drive system. The chain drive is also significantly more durable than a belt drive, so you'll get a longer lifespan before needing to reinvest in a replacement. However, while the chain drive may last longer, chains tend to expand over time. It's extremely important to regularly have your system inspected by a garage door technician in order to make sure your system stays in tip-top shape. If you chain does begin to expand, you'll notice the door slipping as it's lowered, and other components in your garage door assembly will start to suffer from additional stress and suffer a higher than normal failure rate.
