Martin Garage Door Opener Comparison

“When choosing your garage door opener, be sure it is suitable for
your garage door height and weight.”

Use this Martin garage door opener comparison table for a snapshot of every Martin residential garage door opener model. Compare horsepower, features, warranty and options.

Martin openers are powered by quiet DC motors and are available from 1/2 HP* to 1 HP* lifting strength. Although they are designed specifically for Martin garage doors, they can be used with any garage door brand.

When choosing your garage door opener, be sure it is suitable for your garage door height and weight. Openers with 1/2 HP strength can be used with most single and double car garage doors.

For heavier wooden garage doors or carriage house doors, openers with 3/4 HP or 1 HP strength are generally preferred. It is better to have an over powered rather than under powered opener.
