Secure Garage Door Openers

If you own an older radio controlled opener, you can have a problem. A high tech thief will sit and copy your code. You leave to go to work and he simply retransmits the code! If you purchase an opener from one of the companies below, every time you press your radio controlled garage door opener it can randomly change the code to one of 4.3 billion different combinations! That will keep the thieves away from your house.

  • Overhead Door Corporation
  • Raynor Garage Doors

Garage Door Manufacturers - All Types

The following categories list the major manufacturers of each type of garage door. As you would expect, each manufacturer makes several different types of doors. There is a lot of cross-over. Because models, features and options change, I suggest that you look for the following information on each web site:

  • installation suggestions and guidelines once you have narrowed your choice.
  • warranty information.
  • the closest distributor to you so that you might arrange to see the door(s) in person.

The installation information is very important. If you take 10 to 15 minutes to read this documentation, you will be able to identify how well your installer is following the manufacturer's instructions.
