Guardian has been providing quality for over 50 years. We are excited to be able to bring their trusted brand to our customers. Austin Overhead Doors is your authorized dealer for Guardian garage door openers.
The Types of Openers from Guardian
Guardian has two lines of garage door openers, the CORE series, and the PRO series. The CORE series offers a line of low cost, durable, and reliable chain drive openers. The PRO series offers a line of nearly silent belt drive openers.
If you are looking for a lower price tag, don’t care about noise, and need an industrial strength opener, go with a chain drive opener from their CORE series. If noise is a concern for you, such as if you have a room that shares a wall with the garage, you might want to consider a belt drive opener from their PRO series. The one downside to a belt drive opener is that the belts are less durable than chains and you might need to replace it periodically.
What Type of Warranties Does Guardian Offer?
Guardian openers all come with a 5-year warranty on motors, a 1-year warranty on parts, and a 1-year warranty on batteries. The best way to get the most out of your opener is to schedule a yearly tune-up. Beyond the maintenance you do, our team can provide professional maintenance and inspections to your opener.
A typical opener will last about 10,000 to 20,000 cycles, with one cycle being a full opening and closing of your door. To ensure that your opener lasts a long time, make sure your schedule the yearly maintenance and inspections. We can spot and fix small problems that can cause strain on your opener, which would cause premature failure.
How Safe Are Guardian Openers?
In the early 1990’s, new laws required certain safety features to be installed on every garage door system. These laws successfully put an end to child death through entrapment by the garage door. You can be sure that your new opener will keep your children and your pets safe.
Safety is at the center of everything Guardian does, from the design process to the production and testing of their openers. They follow strict UL 325 safety standards for all of their openers and are subject to the extensive safety testing through the UL and ETL.
