While researching my garage door opener brands list, I came across two manufacturers I’d never heard of before: Xtreme Garage and Performax.
Xtreme and Performax garage door openers are sold exclusively at Menards department stores, but they’re not the company that makes them. They are manufactured by Decko Products.
In this article, I’ll dive into both brands to show that they have more in common than you might initially suspect.
Xtreme Garage Door Openers: Overview
Xtreme Garage is a company that operated between 2016 and 2019. They sold a small lineup of garage door openers aimed at entry-level consumers, including belt-drive and chain-drive garage door openers.
Their website provided a store locator tool, which would redirect the reader to the Menards website. Although their garage door openers are no longer sold, the website offers customer support, including a user manual download section, frequently asked questions, and a contact form for customer inquiries.
Performax Garage Door Openers: Overview
Performax started selling garage door openers in mid-2021, exclusively at Menards department stores.
They began with a single model: a smart 3/4 HP chain drive garage door opener. Within a year, they expanded to include a 1/2 HP chain drive opener and a 1/2 HP belt-drive opener.
Their website has a similar design to Xtreme Garage Door Openers. It also included a store locator, live customer support, and online manuals.
Who Makes Xtreme and Performax Garage Door Openers?
As I mentioned, both Xtreme and Performax garage door openers are sold exclusively at Menards and are registered trademarks of the department store.
Both websites have a similar design, and it’s worth noting that the customer service phone number is the same for both products.
Additionally, the model numbers for each company are similar, as you can see in the chart below:
|Xtreme Garage||425-1605||1/2 HP Chain Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1620||1/2 HP Chain Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1669||1/2 HP Chain Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1636||3/4 HP Chain Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1670||3/4 HP Chain Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1656||3/4 HP Belt Drive|
|Xtreme Garage||425-1672||3/4 HP Belt Drive|
|Performax||425-1665||1/2 HP Belt Drive|
|Performax||425-1666||1/2 HP Chain Drive|
|Performax||425-1673||3/4 HP Chain Drive|
However, Menards doesn’t manufacture either brand’s products.
Both Xtreme and Performax garage door openers are manufactured by Decko Products.
We can determine this by looking at the warranty information card in the online manuals. Each product lists Decko Products as the manufacturer and the company responsible for fixing the product if anything goes wrong.
