Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
They look like ordinary coiled springs, but garage door springs are much larger in size and much stronger since their mainpurpose is to balance and move doors, which usually weigh around 400 pounds. For heavy duty doors and when the springs must be extremely durable, they are oil-tempered.
There are also galvanized springs, but these ones are not as strong. There are only two types of springs, but many variations among them.
Since the role of both torsion and extension garage door springs is to balance and lift the door, they must have force equal to the door's weight. They vary in terms of length, end parts, wire size, inside diameter and lifespan. Most residential springs are manufactured to last for about 10,000 cycles.
At this point, they are aged and can break any day. In order to avoid problems and accidents related to broken springs, it's best to replace them before they snap.
Torsion spring adjustment
Springs are able to open the door due to their high tension. They exhaust a lot of energy in order to move the door and therebylose some of their power every time they do. What garage door torsion spring adjustment does is compensate for that loss. Tension is added by turning the winding cone of the spring with the right winding bar. If you want to check the balance of your door and whether there is need for garage door adjustment, disengage the opener and lift the door mid-way. If the door slowly moves down, tension should be added. If the door moves up, tension should be released.
