If you’re in the market for a new garage door opener, you’ll quickly discover just how many options there are available. We don’t just mean the different brands or levels of power that are on the market. You also need to decide on what type of garage door opener you’re going to get.

While many select an overhead garage door opener that uses either a belt drive or chain drive system, those aren’t your only choices. An increasingly popular option is wall mounted garage door openers.

Wall mounted garage door openers (also referred to as side mount and jackshaft openers) offer some distinct advantages over traditional garage door openers. Though they’ve been popular in the commercial market for some time, they’ve become increasingly more common in residential use lately.

The biggest difference (and advantage) of wall mounted openers is that there isn’t anything hanging from the middle of your ceiling. Instead, the opener is mounted on the wall next to the door. For those with limited vertical space, or those who store items above their garage door, this is very beneficial.

They’re also known to be highly durable, quiet, and secure.
