When considering which garage door opener to purchase, we have written extensively about your garage door electric opener options.
Garage Door Opener Types
Belt drive electric openers are the quietest electric openers available. When noise is a concern, customers should install belt driven garage door openers. Dodds carries and services a variety of electric openers including LiftMaster garage door openers (same company as Chamberlain), Skylink and the Dodds electric opener.
Chain drive electric openers are the traditional style of trolley garage door opener. They are reliable, long-lasting and affordable. Dodds sells LiftMaster garage door openers, Skylink electric openers and the Dodds chain drive electric opener.
Side-mount or Jackshaft garage door openers are a great way to save space in a garage. Jackshaft electric openers are mounted to the side of the garage door and require around 12 inches of sideroom to be installed. See our article on the pros and cons of side-mount garage door openers.
Garage Door Opener Brands
We carry a variety of garage door opener brands. LiftMaster garage door openers are sold through garage door dealers. They are manufactured by the same company as Chamberlain garage door openers. The key difference is that LiftMaster garage door openers come with a one-piece rail system connecting the electric opener with your garage door. This makes for a safer and more durable installation.
Garage Door Opener Safety
Every garage door opener that we sell is equipped with a photo eye; a light beam that goes across the opening of the door. If the light beam is broken by a person, car, pet or any object the door will not close. An overhead garage door opener will not operate if the photo eyes are not working properly.
