Belt Drives

The Best Openers if Your Garage Is Attached to Your Home

A belt drive opener is the most silent of the garage door openers available since it does not have the chain clinking around while it opens or closes the door. A belt driven opener makes use of a belt around a pulley that turns and lifts the door. These openers are easy and fast to install and one of our technicians can get it installed in just a few hours. If your garage shares a wall with any type of living space, this is the type of opener that will be perfect since it’s so quiet.

Belt drives are regarded in the garage door industry as the best type of opener. Not only are belt drives as reliable as chain drives, but they are also virtually silent. This drive runs on a steel-reinforced rubber belt and is slightly more expensive than chain drive openers. If your garage is attached to your home and has surrounding bedrooms, you’ll never be bothered by the noise of your garage door. We highly recommend this LiftMaster belt driven opener.
