The best word to use when describing the opener's function is 'convenience'. Today, automatic doors seem like a given as we no longer have to manually heave these heavy doors up and down. However, as we take the automated function for granted more and more, when something goes wrong it all becomes very inconvenient quickly.
When Things Go Wrong
Unfortunately, even the strongest and smartest pieces of machinery occasionally break down and need to be placed. Your opener usually comes with a manufacturer's shelf life warning but it may deteriorate faster without proper care and attention. If your door suddenly ceases to open or respond, this could indicate a problem with the unit's motor gear or circuit board. If you get in touch with our team, they'll be able to identify the problem and sort it for you.
Have The Sensors Gone Cross-Eyed?
If the sensors are not properly aligned or have become considerably dirty, they may become unable to detect objects or people in the path of the door as it starts to close. Obviously this can be very dangerous, if you suspect there is a problem with your reverse function, please contact us immediately. Our technicians can resolve any alignment issues and ensure your system doesn't present any safety risks.
Choosing A New Model
There are three main types of opener drive – if you're not too bothered about volume levels and noise, chain drive units are generally a bit cheaper but also make more noise. If you have bedrooms and other living spaces close to your garage, you may wish to opt for a belt drive which operates almost silently. The screw drive types present the middle ground, of average price, and audible rather than very noisy. We can help you choose the right unit for you and help you with the installation of it.
