A friend of mine installed the Genie Excelerator Garage Door Opener with Clopay doors. I went out to his house last week and checked it out. The opener itself was very quiet and the doors made very little noise.
The Genie Excelerator Garage Door Opener is one of my favorites. You get a good quality unit that is almost as quiet as a belt drive due to the coating which prevents metal-to-metal contact. This is a mid-priced unit and has the fewest moving parts so there is less to wear out.
Installation is simple and easy. I suggest you view the Animated Assembly Instructions online before beginning your installation. This video no longer seems to be available so I have disabled the link!
If your door is noisy, it may be that you have worn parts, or you need to perform maintenance on your system.
Genie Excelerator Opens twice as fast; closes at normal speed. Allows quicker garage entry and exit, adds peace of mind at night. Eliminates aggravating waits.
