How do openers with DC and AC motors compare?
The openers with DC motors deliver excellent performance. They run smoothly and quietly. They can have a very high opening speed. They are smaller and lighter compared to their counterparts. The models with AC motors are often more durable. Our specialists in Newcastle recommend that you look closely into the specs of each opener model.
Why is lubrication good for the system?
All mechanisms need oiling. Steel moves smoother when it is lubricated. If lubricants are absent and steel comes in contact with steel, the noise will be loud and the material will wear out easily. Since, garage door parts are made of steel, they require good lubrication maintenance and cleaning in order to move smoothly and last longer. Ask our specialists for assistance.
