What can I do to reduce the noise of my garage door while opening or closing?

It often happens that the garage is below a room (Bedroom or other) where the noise caused by the door may cause a problem.


What to do then?

Change the steel rollers for nylon rollers, choose an opener with a belt drive instead of a chain drive. If you already have an opener with a chain drive, you can get a mounting isolator kit. A torsion type spring will be less noisy and the choice of an aluminium door (lighter door) will reduce the noise.


Finally we advise you to do regular lubrication of the rollers and the tracks.
