Linear garage door openers are made by Linear LLC, which makes garage door openers, gate operators and other RF-related products. Linear engineers a wide array of radio frequency (RF) products.
Linear’s recent growth has included the acquisition of several consumer electronic companies, including those that offer everything from audio/video systems for the entire house to central vacuum systems, structured wiring and speaker systems, etc. One of Linear’s acquisitions was the Allstar garage door opener company, and all Allstar and Allister (the former name of Allstar) branded products are now under the Linear banner.
Some Linear garage door operators are part of Linear’s modular line, which means you purchase the garage door operator (motor, housing, lights, etc.) and then pair it with the rail system of your choice. For example, the LS050 is a 1/2 HP garage door operator that can be paired with chain or belt drive rails. Other models, such as the MVP line of chain drive gargae door openers come set up for chain-drive only.
Below are some of the most popular models from the Linear line:
