The very first mass produced, radio-controlled residential garage opener sold in America was none other than the Genie. The direct drive screw opener was invented by Genie engineers in the 1950s, and this product is still sold today. Genie offers screw drive, belt, and chain garage door openers. A 140-volt DC motor, an IntelliCode secure remote access security system that changes the security code each time the transmitter is activated and a Safe-T-Beam infrared system that senses objects in a garage door’s path to prevent injury or entrapment are all offered by Genie. As far as installations go, a Genie installation is straightforward and is the perfect choice for any garage or budget. Are you interested in taking a look at the latest Genie garage door technology?

For over 50 years, the Genie name has been associated with the screw drive automatic garage door opener. The screw drive lifting mechanism is also known as a direct drive system. It moves along a threaded steel rod instead of being lifted by a belt or a chain. Since screw drive openers have very few moving parts to wear out, they are known for being extremely reliable and low maintenance. Genie screw drive openers are tough, and can quickly lift even the heaviest doors. Genie’s 140 DC motor is well known for its soft stop and start. The soft stop and start feature helps reduce wear and tear on the garage door and opener. The screw drive opener is self-lubricating and under normal operating conditions will operate for years without maintenance.
If quiet, strong performance is a high priority for you, you’ll be interested in the famous Genie 140-volt DC motor. The electric motor that lifts and lowers the door is operated by either a belt or a chain running along a rail. The enclosed C-channel rail allows flush-mounting for a clean appearance by hiding the belt or chain from view, plus it adds strength and durability. Motion detection lighting is a great option to consider, since it will enhance your garage’s security. Many Genie units offer motion detection lighting. The soft start and soft stop design is what Genie belt drives and chain drives are famous for. Call us if you have any questions about the Genie products we offer.
