I have done a search for previous posts but not come up with much.

I would like to know if anyone has any experience of garage door openers, especially with reference to the benefits/pitfalls of chain drive vs belt drive.

I will be using it with a canopy arm on a reasonably heavy metal frame, wood faced single size door.

Any advice gratefully received.

Regards

Matt

I have only come across chain drive openers. Belt drive I believe will lead to slippage if the loads are too great, but that will depend on the quality of the drive system.

The benefits of belt drive over chain is that the belt is quieter and preferred if you have an integral garage with a bedroom above etc. Belt drive being more expensive than chain.
