How Do Garage Doors Work?
The garage door trolley carriage is the rail that connects the garage door to the garage door opener. The trolley carriage rests on the trolley rail and is operated by a belt, chain, or screw drive, which pulls the garage door open or lowers it closed. When you press the button inside the garage or on your garage door remote, a signal is sent to a receiver telling the motor to begin operating. The chain, belt, or screw drive will then provide the necessary momentum to twist or extend the torsion or extension springs installed above or beside your garage door. These springs are a counterbalance that absorbs the weight of the door and works alongside the cables to open and close the door safely. As the door is raised or lowered, the panels, which are attached by hinges, allow the door to bend or extend. Rollers run along the tracks on each side of the door to ensure it glides smoothly up or down. A problem with any of these parts or mechanisms can cause your garage door to operate unsafely, unreliably, or not at all and requires garage door repair, replacement, or new garage door installation.
What Is a Garage Door Trolley?
A chain drive garage door opener is one of the oldest styles and technologies available and a very common choice for homeowners. They operate using a trolley system. A chain connected to the garage door moves along a track to raise or lower the door, like a simple pulley system. Trolley garage door openers are incredibly durable, which is why they have remained so popular over the years. They work with heavy-duty garage doors and operate smoothly and easily. Garage door trolley carriage repair or replacement is typically less expensive than other types of garage door opener systems. With the right care and maintenance, they can last an incredibly long time.
