Does a Garage Door Have to be Loud?

Don’t like the loud noise? Does the garage opening and closing wake you up in the morning or keep you up at night? Does the garage door creek each time it moves?

It may be hard to believe for some, but motorized garage door openers move the largest moving component in a residential home, the garage door. The garage door can create great protection from the elements for vehicles and other items contained in the garage. Anyone who has children at home knows the risks that can occur with kids at home. It may seem that you always need to watch your children, particularly the younger ones, around the garage door.

Door Opening Options

There are three basic types of tracks that whereby the garage door moves along. They are a chain, screw or a belt track.

First, a garage door chain track is known as the cheapest and oldest technology. If you have a chain on your garage door track, you will see a chain being moved along the track. The chain makes a large sound when moving.

Second, a screw track is a continuous threaded shaft connects the operator to the trolley, and its arm reaches for the door. Its threads require frequent lubrication with silicone.

Finally, a belt track is the quietest and most modern of the three tracks. When moving, the belt rotates through a gear on the operator to pull the trolley to open or close the garage door.
