When it comes to gate openers, not all motors are the same. Learn why Auto Openers’ Panel Tilt Motors are the most popular motors in our range.
Just like the traditional garage door openers, panel tilt garage door openers have their own unique features that make them attractive to homeowners. They have the ability to open wide by just lifting them up and sliding them back so they can be used as a canopy. These types of garage doors are very useful especially when you want to park your car outside the garage and still want to be able to use the space inside for other purposes.
A tilt motor is essentially a motor that allows for the opening and closing of your garage door. Tilt motors can be single panel tilt motors (for single panel garage doors) or sectional tilt motors (for garage doors made up of multiple sections/panels).
The motor can be fitted to the front of the door or the side depending on the type of drive you require. It has an adjustable travel range depending on how many panels you have on your garage door. The motor can be fitted with a wired wall switch or a handheld remote control depending on which best suits your needs.
A tilt motor can be either run via a cable or using a belt drive system. The main difference between these two systems is that the cable driven system provides more force but requires more maintenance whereas the belt driven system doesn’t need as much maintenance but requires more power to run.
The Sectional Tilt Garage Door Opener is one of our most popular garage door openers because of its versatility. The sectional opener opens double doors up to 6 metres wide and 3 metres tall. It is perfect for any brand of garage door in Australia, and it has a low headroom design guaranteed to fit every brand of garage door in Australia. It comes with an industry-leading 5-Year Warranty and three remote controls (one for each door). It operates in all weather conditions, making it ideal for the changing Australian climate.
There are several types of automatic garage door openers, but all will take you less than an hour to install. You can start by gathering all the tools and materials you will need to install your garage door opener. You may need several power tools, including a drill, a circular saw, a ladder and a level.
Step 1: Identify the correct opener.
Step 2: Be sure to shut off the power to your garage door before you begin the installation.
Step 3: When installing a sectional garage door opener, read the instructions carefully and make sure you have all the necessary tools before you begin.
Step 4: Carefully clean and lubricate all the metal-to-metal contact points on the door, including hinges and rollers. You can check the video instructions here.
Another thing to take into consideration is the height of your garage ceiling. If your garage ceiling is too low, it may not be possible for you to install a standard garage door opener by yourself. In addition to checking the height of your ceiling, it is also necessary to check if there are any obstructions in the way of where you want to install your new garage door opener.
