​​What Is The Difference Between The Screw, Belt And Chain Drive Garage Door Openers?

  • Screw Drive — powerful, fast and quiet. Maximum power for heavy doors.
  • Belt Drive — quiet and smooth performance. Ideal for garages adjacent to living areas.
  • Chain Drive — rugged and reliable. Suitable for most garage doors.
Openers manufactured after 1980: an Overhead Door® Master Remote can be purchased from your local Overhead Door Distributor. Openers manufactured prior to 1980: we no longer carry remotes and your system must be upgraded with a new receiver kit.​​
You can get the programming instructions for the OKP and OWKP wireless keypad in the support section of our website.​​
Overhead Door integrates different technology into its openers and wall consoles. The technologies are known as Series I, Series II and Series III. Series II is backwards compatible to Series I. Series III is not backwards compatible without additional purchased parts. Contact us for further details. If the date code of your opener is 041217 or higher, you can use a Series II wall console with your opener. If not, you must use a Series I wall console for your opener. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
