The Genie name has been associated with the screw drive automatic garage door opener for over 50 years. Instead of being lifted by a belt or a chain, the screw drive lifting mechanism moves along a threaded steel rod, and is also known as a direct drive system. Screw drive openers are very reliable and low maintenance since they have very few moving parts to wear out. Genie screw drive openers lift even heavy doors quickly. Genie’s 140 DC motor is famous for its soft stop and start. This feature reduces wear and tear on the garage door and opener. The screw drive opener self-lubricates and will run for years without maintenance under normal operating conditions.
The Genie famous 140-volt DC motor provides quiet and strong performance. The opener uses either a belt or a chain running along a rail to operate the electric motor that lifts and lowers the door. The enclosed, C-channel rail hides the belt or chain from view, allows flush-mounting for a clean appearance and adds strength and durability. To enhance the security of your garage, many units offer motion detection lighting. The Genie belt drives and chain drives are famous for their soft start and soft stop design.
