What You Should Know About a Garage Door Opener Belt Drive

The garage door opener was certainly a convenient invention. However, one complaint that people often had about early garage door openers was the loud noise they made when opening or closing. The garage door opener belt drive eliminates that problem entirely. Powered by either a chain or a belt drive, this opener features extremely quiet operation. It also reduces the everyday wear and tear on your garage door due to its soft starting and stopping capabilities.

Other Advantages of Choosing a Belt Drive for Your Garage Door Opener

Every second matters when you’re in a hurry to get your car in the garage so you can get into the house. The good news about belt drives is that they can lift even the heaviest of doors faster than their chain-based counterparts. Along with that, this product can endure incredible strength so that you don’t have to worry about your garage door breaking at an inconvenient time. 

Yet another benefit of choosing a garage door opener that operates via a belt drive is that it’s easy for you to maintain. You don’t have to lubricate it like you need to do with a chain drive. However, we do recommend scheduling regular preventive maintenance to keep it operating as efficiently as possible for as long as possible.

Safety is Always Our Top Concern

We understand how much you love your family and want to keep them safe. After all, it’s not worth trading the convenience of being able to open your garage door from the inside of your vehicle if it puts your loved ones at risk in any way. Our belt drive opener, along with every other type of garage door opener that we sell, comes with a monitoring system called DoorDetect. The garage door will automatically stop if anything enters its path while in motion, such as a person, animal, or bicycle. Tragic accidents can happen in a matter of seconds, but DoorDetect stops them from before they happen.
