Garage Door Openers
If you are searching for the best, newest smart garage door opener, a cheap garage door opener that still performs well, or something in between, BD Garage Door & Gate Supplies has a garage door opener that will meet your needs.
There are many options out there for buying a garage door opener online, or in-store. It can be intimidating trying to decide what kind will best fit your needs.
Some things to consider when looking to buy a new garage door opener online are:
- How Often Is Your Garage Door Used, and How Heavy Is Your Garage Door?
Garage door openers come in different horsepowers ranging from 1/2 horsepower to 1 ¼ horsepower. If you have a lightweight aluminum garage door, you probably only need a 1/2 horsepower garage door opener. However, if your garage door is the main entrance to your home, or you have an especially heavy garage door (wood, steel, etc.) then you may need a 3/4 or even a 1 ¼ horsepower garage door opener.
- How Quiet Do You Want Your Garage Door Opener?
There are several different types of garage door openers. These are belt drive, chain drive, screw drive, and direct drive. Belt and direct drive garage door openers are the quietest of these, so if you have concerns with the noise level of your garage door opener, these would be your best choices.
- Do You Want To Be Able To Access Your Garage Door When You’re Away?
The latest wifi compatible garage door openers allow you to see, open, or close your garage door – anywhere you are, right from your phone. If this is something that you want, then look for a modern wifi compatible garage door opener.
- Do You Want A Backup Battery?
Some garage door openers also come with a battery backup which allows the garage door opener to function, even if your power goes out. This gives you extra peace of mind that your garage will still be easily accessible to you, even if there is a power outage.
Installing Your Garage Door Opener
While it is possible to install your own garage door opener, we do offer garage door opener installation services for those who would rather let the pros handle it.
Garage Door Parts
Your garage door is one of the most used parts of your house. Because of this, it is inevitable that some of your garage door parts are going to give out, from daily wear and tear, and need to be replaced. When that time comes, BD Garage Door & Gate Supplies has the garage door parts and hardware that you need to get it back up and running like new.
Some of the garage door parts that we carry include:
1. Garage Door Springs
Garage door springs help to offset the weight of the garage door and make it possible for an average person, or garage door opener, to easily open and close the garage door. For every pound a garage door weighs, that same weight in spring force must be applied to pull against it. This is done with springs. Either torsion springs, which torque specific parts of the garage door to balance the weight, or extension springs, which stretch on either side of the door to offset the weight.
Qualities of Torsion Springs:
- Balance the garage door by applying torque to the drum shaft at each end. It will wind and unwind as the garage door opens and closes.
- Can use one or two torsion springs depending on the weight of the door (two is safer).
Garage door torsion springs have 3 properties that influence their lift and life expectancy. The lift of torsion springs refers to how much weight the spring can lift. This is determined by the wire size, inside diameter, and length of the spring. The life expectancy – also called the cycle life, says how many times the garage door should be able to open and close before the spring breaks.
Qualities of Extension Springs:
- Mounted along the sides of the garage door.
- Stretch and contract as the door opens and closes to offset the garage door’s weight.
If you are using extension springs with your garage door, it is recommended that you look for ones that have safety cables to prevent injury if the spring ends up snapping.
2. Garage Door Transmitters
Transmitter is just another way of saying remote control or keypad that controls your garage door opener. Garage door remotes and keypads are how you interact with your garage door opener. It must be programmed to your specific garage door opener, and only to your garage door opener. If a garage door transmitter is not properly programmed, all sorts of strange problems can arise.
BD Garage Door & Gate Supplies carries all types of garage door transmitters including car visor clip remotes, keyless entry fobs, mounted keypads, mounted open/close buttons, SmartPhone remote programming, and more. If you need a replacement garage door transmitter, or would like an upgrade, we’ve got the part to meet your needs!
3. Garage Door Hardware
If your garage door is broken, most of the time, you don’t need to replace the entire thing. Most of the time, you can just replace the broken parts of your garage door. BD Garage Door & Gate Supplies carries all of the garage door replacement parts that you need including:
- Garage Door Cables
- Garage Door Tracks
- Garage Door Rollers
