Liftmaster Chain Drive Openers
Liftmaster chain drive
garage door openers combine affordability with durability.
Chain drive openers use a linked chain, similar to those
used on most bicycles, connected to two sprockets. Each
sprocket is located on opposite ends of the door opener,
one at the main base and the other at the tip of the arm
that reaches from the base to the garage door.
Liftmaster chain drive garage door openers can be used to
lift the heaviest of garage doors. They are rugged and deliver
consistent performance in any type of weather. This durability
and strength is particularly present in the chain drive systems
because both the chain and sprockets are made of strong rigid
metal that will not fail, even when under a heavy load. This
strength and dependability is even more present when operating
a standard or lightweight door as the chain and sprocket
deliver more strength than necessary.
Liftmaster has a variety of chain drive openers available,
most of which include the extensive list of available options
and accessories that Liftmaster has developed to meet the
varied and unique needs of customers. As an example, the
Liftmaster 8360 Premium Series Chain Drive opener has an
optional system that includes a battery back where the opener
will operate even if there is no power to the home. This could
be critical in situations where you come home at night in bad
weather and need to drive directly into the garage, even if the
power is out.
Another example of Liftmaster's extensive chain drive
product line is the Elite Series 3595. The 3595 combines a 3/4
horsepower motor with a commercial grade I-beam arm and extra
support brackets that can open heavy custom solid wood or
carriage doors reliably with ease.
