Which is better? Belt or chain drive garage door opener?
Chain drive garage door openers is most commonly used, it uses metal chain like bicycle used, which is reliable and durable. It pulls a trolley back and forth in a track, the door is connected to the trolley by door arm. Chain drive is the most heavy-duty openers due to its strength.
If you’re going to be moving a heavier garage door, chain drive garage door openers are the better choice. A chain drive will be the better fit if your garage is detached from the house so that any noise from it would not matter. Our ZT DOOR’s Openers are much quieter due to 24VDC motors and soft start and stop.
Belt drive garage door openers are by far the quietest openers. It's slightly more expensive than chain drive openers.It using a plastic rubber. The belt drive because of its smooth operation does it slightly faster.
Belt drive is the luxury choice for those who insist on quiet operation. These openers have the same mechanism as that used on chain drives except for the substitution of a quieter belt for the chain. The low-vibration belt is made from polyurethane, steel-reinforced rubber or fiberglass. Belt drives are the quietest openers and cost a little more than chain drive
Each with its own set of advantages. No one type is the best -- that's why ZT DOOR offers both 2 types. Your choice will probably depend on personal preference, but both two will provide years of excellent service when properly maintained.
