Garage door motors, also known as openers, come in various types to suit different needs and preferences.
- Chain-drive openers use a metal chain to operate the door, offering durability and cost-effectiveness but may produce more noise during operation.
- Belt-drive openers use a rubber or synthetic belt for quieter and smoother performance, making them ideal for attached garages or spaces near living areas.
- Screw-drive openers employ a threaded steel rod for lifting the door, providing a middle ground between chain and belt drives in terms of noise and cost.
- Direct-drive or jackshaft openers mount on the side of the door and use a motor to turn the torsion bar, offering a quiet and space-saving solution.
Garage door motors are designed to be used with different types of garage doors:
- Sectional door motors
- Roller door motors
- Tilt Door motors
- Commercial door motors.
