The modern day garage door system is intricate and complex, containing over two dozen components, most of them involved in the process of opening and closing. The typical garage door opener is made up of bracket, springs, rollers, a track system, a drive mechanism, cables, and so on. When combined and functioning properly, opening and closing your garage door is smooth, easy and hassle-free. Should one or more of these components break or need repair, however, that all changes. Opening and closing garage doors is an action that most of us don’t think much of, until of course something breaks or goes wrong. In that case, we can’t stop thinking about our garage door opener system, especially if our vehicles are stuck inside and we need to go places.

Complicated and Complex Garage Door Openers

Garage doors are very complicated and complex, containing a lot of moving parts that are prone to wear and tear. A good way to think of your garage door is to imagine an assembly line. Every part of the assembly line must function at its best in order to produce the highest quality product. The same holds true for a garage door. Each brand name of garage door is different, and so is each of their corresponding garage door opener systems. There are three different types of garage doors: the chain generates, the screw-drive and the rubber belt-drive. The chain generates makes the most noise, the screw-drive is a little bit quieter, and the rubber belt-drive is the quietest. The three are fairly similar, but each has its unique intricacies.

One of the most important parts of the garage door opener is the springs. Garage door springs are put under a lot of pressure and tension, as they are responsible for holding the weight of the door, which can sometimes weigh over 350 pounds. Most homeowners will see their springs on each side of their garage doors. Most garage doors use either extension springs or torsion springs. Some of the other components of garage doors include the rollers, tracks, cables, screws, hinges, plates, and so on. There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to a functional garage door. Each of these moving parts and components must function properly in unison in order to keep your door opening and closing smoothly, the way it should, every time.

Smart Door Technology

Sometimes we forget to close our garage doors, or we aren’t sure if one of our family members remembered to close it, and so on. If you aren’t home, and there are no vehicles in the garage, that sends a message to anyone passing by that no one is home. This can potentially attract potential thieves and cause a break in. In the past, these headaches weren’t easily cured, and had to be addressed manually. Nowadays we have technology that can handle these issues and alleviate headaches and eliminate worry.
