The direct drive opener usually operates by a motor located within the trolley. A chain and gears help rotate the trolley. This type is also known to have fewer parts and quiet operation. If you are looking for a quieter type of opener, this may be one to consider.
A jackshaft opener is common in warehouses. It is also popular in some homes. This one is the most different type of opener because it is not mounted above the garage. Instead, it is mounted on the side of the wall and is next to the springs.
Commercial warehouses usually benefit from this type of opener because it is made for buildings with higher ceilings. If you own a home or a business, there are some parts you will need to make this work for your home. Let us help you if you are interested in this type of opener.

The Opener Remote Control
The Garage Door Repair Service of Sacramento want to provide you with all the information you need about garage door parts. There are various parts that contribute to the operation of your garage door opener. These parts work in harmony to operate your entire system. Here is a brief look at those parts.
Transmitters And Batteries
Your garage door cannot open without a signal being sent. Transmitters and batteries are very important devices that send those signals to open and close your door. The remote is the transmitter for your garage door opener.
When you push the remote buttons, certain frequency waves send signals to the transmitter. These signals are what makes the garage door open and close. The batteries help the transmitter to operate. Like all batteries they have a certain life span and will need to be changed frequently depending on use.
The dip switch is located in your remote for the remote and opener to work together. It is a very small part but it functions as your door’s personal identification number. When you push your remote buttons, the dip switch signals your garage door to open.
The dip switch is also important because it operates on a specific frequency. The frequency is usually 300 to 400 MHz. This tiny piece of equipment prevents other electronics from interfering with your garage door frequency.
Safety sensors can be installed in most garage openers. An infrared signal helps these to work. When you press your remote button, there is a signal that is sent to the motor to close and open the door. If your garage door is having problems, the safety sensor may be out of alignment. Please ask us about the safety features for your door.
The trolley is a specific part that pulls on the opener to make the door open. This happens by a chain or belt rotation. When the door closes, the trolley pushes on the opener. There is a rope which hangs from the trolley. This part is responsible for opening and closing the door.
