Overhead Door PhantomFor all single and double car garage doors, the Phantom is a solid choice. If you want a quiet garage door opener installed by a professional dealer, put this one on your list, especially if you have living space above or next to the garage.

Overhead Door Phantom openers feature a fiber reinforced belt system, soft start and stop for quieter operation and extended door life, and 120 kg of lifting force. Standard included accessories include a deluxe wall console and a one-button remote.

The Phantom also includes a dual light system (up to 120 watts).
