Choosing Opener for Garage Door

A garage door can weigh anywhere between 50 – 150kg. Over time your door will require periodic maintenance to ensure that everything is working at its optimum level and is not causing any unnecessary wear and tear. It is also essential to make sure that all your garage door opener accessories like photo eye beams and your safety system are tested regularly. These accessories prevent the garage door opener from operating and closing on a person, animal or vehicle.

Garage door openers are operated by remotes which can be used from inside the property or in addition, accessories like keypads can be installed outside the home so that access can be given to anyone who needs to enter the property through the garage door via a 4 digit pin.

Brisbane Automatic Garage Door Openers is a certified reseller and trained installer of garage door openers. Our service area covers Brisbane and all its surrounding suburbs, south to the Gold Coast, North to the Sunshine Coast & west to Ipswich.

Top Signs to Opt for Garage Door Spring Repair in Brisbane

Do you know garage door spring is one of the main elements that ensure proper functioning of the garage door? To keep your Brisbane home’s garage door in a proper working condition, it is important in ensuring checking up the springs. The main job of the garage door springs is to wind and unwind on the movement of the door, which at times breaks or worn out due to daily wear and tear. In case of a broken, worn out or faulty garage door spring, you need to opt for getting assistance from garage door repair professionals in Brisbane who will fix up the issue that will help in avoiding a potential disaster.

Let us first discuss about the two different types of springs for your garage door in Brisbane:

  • Torsion Springs: Torsion springs use torque to raise the garage doors with an ease and in a safe way. This type of spring is attached above the garage opening, which slowly twist and coil on the shaft to ensure a smooth operation.
  • Extension Springs: These types of springs are located above the upper horizontal tracks on both sides of the garage door. Paired with safety cables, the extension spring provides the counterbalancing force to support the garage door.

Here are the common signs of a broken or faulty spring system of your garage door in Brisbane, which requires a prompt repair service:

What Types of Garage Door Opener Options are Available in Brisbane?

Just about every home in Brisbane has a garage door and most of these have an automatic garage door opener fitted. These doors provide the home with security, and an automatic opener gives us push button convenience. But none of us think about either of them – until they go wrong!

And that is about when we discover that we know very little about them. We don’t know that there are different types of doors available, or that not all doors can be fitted to our garage, or what are our options for repair or automation.

In this post, we are going to discuss about the types of automated garage door openers, which will help you in giving an idea to pick the desired one. Please read on!

  1. A) Tilt Doors and Sectional Doors

#Option1- Chain Drive Garage Door Openers:

The majority of older Tilt Doors and Sectional Doors in Brisbane use this chain driven classic garage door opener. These openers have a unit that contains the controls and the electric motor, and this unit drives a bicycle chain attached o a trolley which in turn is connected to the garage door  by a j-arm. The trolley runs up and down a rail or a track and the chain is exposed.

  • These are common on the Tilt Doors installed on the traditional “Queenslander” houses. These chain driven garage door openers are rugged and reliable and for years have been one of the most economical options
  • But recent and potential changes to Australia Health and Safety regulations for garage door openers, means that this system with an exposed chain drive has meant that reputable suppliers of garage door openers have moved to a “C-Rail” system, which has the belt or chain totally enclosed within the rail.
  • This means that we no longer install the traditional Chain Drive Garage Door Opener on domestic garage doors.

#Option2- Belt Drive Garage Door Openers:

As a result of the Health and Safety compliance issues already mentioned in Option 1, , their  sleekness and much reduced noise levels, the belt driven garage door opener is now the preferred option, particularly in more up-market accommodation.

  • The door is lifted by a steel reinforced rubber belt that is entirely enclosed within the “C-Rail” system.
  • Newer and quieter motors and gearboxes, and the reduced vibration resulting from eliminating the chain, has meant further reduction in noise levels and wear and tear.
  1. B) Roller Doors

Option 1 Separate Dive and Control Unit

This type of opener is rugged and reliable and once setup properly, operates without problem for many years. They are noisy and unsophisticated by modern standards, and lack some of the modern safety features

  • As the Drive Unit mostly fits inside the door roll, it has been particularly successful on roller doors where side room is limited.
  • Replacement of control Unit parts is easy
  • Setting the limits in tight spaces requires experience as it needs to be done entirely by touch

Option 2 Compact Garage Door Openerst

  • Designed for single or double roller doors, these openers fit on either side of the roller door, and rest on the bracket that supports the door.
  • They are powerful and fast, and tend to have a rugged DC motor.
  • As they fit onto the side of the door, they are easy to install and to replace.
  • Care must be taken while installing to prevent the tension on the springs from being released, or the door falling off the bracket while installing.
  • DIYers should be careful when doing the installation alone
