While the purchase of a new garage door is widely regarded as one of the most financially sound home improvements you can make, with studies showing that they retain 76% of their value, garage door openers are perhaps one of the most convenient purchases you can make. In addition to making your life easier they can also improve both security and safety at your home. Prestige Doors offers a range of different garage door openers to clients in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
Different Types of Garage Door Openers Provided By Prestige Doors
Prestige Doors offers the latest in garage door opener technology in addition to some of the more traditional systems. These include:
- Chain Driven Systems – The most cost efficient types of system out there, a chain-drive garage door opener utilizes a chain similar to that found on a bicycle to lower and raise the door. This type of system is best suited to a detached garage due to the amount of noise generated when in use.
- Belt Driven Systems – These are very similar to chain driven systems, except a high strength belt (typically manufactured from fiberglass, steel reinforced rubber or polyurethane) is used rather than a chain. The concept is the same, but they are a lot quieter than chain driven systems and cost a little more.
- Screw Driven Systems – Screw driven garage door openers offer more power than both belt or chain systems, making them the ideal for choice for heavier garage doors. Rather than using a belt or a chain to open and close the door, a threaded steel rod is used, creating less noise than a chain driven system, but more than a belt driven system.
- Direct Drive Systems – With a direct drive opener the motor does all of the heavy lifting and isn’t assisted by a secondary component like with the other types of opener. The motor moves along a chain that remains stationary, connects to a J-arm and then raises the door.
