Vertical Garage Door Opener
I would like to install a garage door opener in a vertical position above the center of the garage door and on the same wall as the garage door instead of in the typical horizontal position. There would be a dead lift and return with no springs. There is room for the opener and track between the wall and the door. As long as the garage door opener is rated for the weight of the door does anyone see any problem with this? The door has separate locking pins for the open and closed position, so the opener would not have to continuously hold the weight. Any recommendations on models to use in this application? Can I expect to just connect the attachment bracket directly to the door if the lift length of the rail is adequate? The garage door opener companies respond with legal notices that they cannot recommend a product for non-standard applications, so I am turning here for help. Thanks.
