Each type of garage door opener has its advantages. Screw drive models are best used on one- piece doors that tilt rather than go up on a track.
Screw drives run slower than the other two model types and are the easiest to adjust for shortened applications. Chain and belt drives work well in all applications. The belt drive is the quietest garage door opener and is recommended when there is a room adjacent to, or above the garage. The chain drive model is the garage door opener that has been in production the longest and provides dependable performance year after year. All of our garage door openers are very reliable and require very little maintenance.
