Chain Drive Electric Openers


Chain Drive is the most common type of garage door opener. Chain Drive electric openers are reliable, affordable and time tested in many installations. Chain drive door openers use a metal chain, like a bicycle chain, to open the garage door. Some very large, customized, garage doors are better served when installed with a stronger chain drive system than a belt drive system. LiftMaster garage door openers are manufactured by the same company as Chamberlain. The key difference is that LiftMaster openers come with a one-piece rail system connecting the electric opener with your garage door. This makes for a safer and more durable garage door opener installation.

If you are unsure about what sort of garage door opener is right for you, be sure to consult us to help you make the right choice.

Dodds sell chain drive garage door openers including installation. See Dodds residential electric opener options.
