Both nylon and steel rollers can be used on garage doors, and each type has its advantages and disadvantages.
Nylon rollers are generally quieter than steel rollers, and they are also less likely to cause damage to the garage door tracks over time. They are also resistant to rust and corrosion, which can be a significant advantage in areas with high humidity or salt exposure.
Steel rollers, on the other hand, are generally stronger and more durable than nylon rollers. They can withstand more weight and pressure, making them a better choice for heavier garage doors. However, they are more prone to rust and corrosion, which can cause them to wear out faster over time.
Ultimately, the choice between nylon and steel rollers for your garage door will depend on your specific needs and preferences. If you prioritize quiet operation and long-term durability, nylon rollers may be the better choice. If you have a heavy garage door and need a roller that can withstand more weight and pressure, steel rollers may be the better option.
