TYPES OF GARAGE DOOR OPENERS
This type of opener functions by using a chain on a track to open and close garage doors. They are installed in the center of the garage ceiling. Unlike its other garage door opener counterparts, chain drives may be a bit nosier. Chain-drive openers are among the most economical and common.
Screw-drive openers are powered by a device that moves on a threaded rod made of steel. The garage door is pulled up by the thread as a connected rod turns. Over time, regular maintenance will be needed or the opener will grow noisy. Many customers prefer investing just a few dollars more into a belt-drive opener, which is smoother and has minimal noise.
Belt-drive openers work by pulling the door with a rubber belt. These garage openers are popular for their quiet and easy operation. It is perfect for people with living spaces above the garage or who simply appreciate the virtually silent drive system.
Because the jackshaft opener is attached directly to the torsion shaft and does not use a ceiling mounted track, it can provide minimal noise and quick speed. It can also save you several inches of ceiling space, which is great if you are storing a large vehicle.
