Jackshaft Garage Door Opener

The newest technology of garage door openers involves a unique configuration.  The jackshaft garage door openers are applied to the side of a garage door, rather than hanging above the garage door.  Unlike the past 50 years, these garage door openers have a more cosmetic and special application quality.  Though the jackshaft openers are fantastic, most modern homes are built without enough room to the side of their garage door shaft in order to install a side mounted garage door opener.  However when installed properly, the jackshaft is just as nice as a belt driven opener, but can me much more useful for situations that call for high lift garage doors, or homes with ceiling clearance issues.  The jackshaft is considerably more expensive, but might just be a glimpse into where garage door opener technology might be headed.  Author’s Pick:  Liftmaster 8500 Jackshaft.

Recently another type of opener, known as the jackshaft opener, has become more popular. This style of opener was used frequently on commercial doors but in recent years has been adapted for residential use. This style of opener consists of a motor that attaches to the side of the torsion rod and moves the door up and down by simply spinning the rod. These openers need a few extra components to function safely for residential use. These include a cable tension monitor, to detect when a cable is broken, and a separate locking mechanism to lock the door when it is fully closed. These have the advantage that they free up ceiling space that an ordinary opener and rail would occupy. These also have the disadvantage that the door must have a torsion rod to attach the motor to.
