are several types of garage door spring system. most commonly used, extension springs and torsion springs.
Extension spring are given such name because they store energy by extending or stretching. the extension spring is based on distance, the further it is extended, the more force is applied on the spring. It can last from 5,000 to 10,000 lifts.
extension springs are the most common residential garage door spring type. they look like the spring you see in mattresses and located at the sides of the door and are mounted on the swing arms. they are often the garage door spring solution in most residential construction projects. It is important to note that with more exposed parts, they’re also more dangerous.
The extension springs provide the power needed to open the garage door while the cable and pulley system does the actual lifting. If any of these parts are damaged or not installed properly, the system will not function safely or properly.
Torsion spring are commonly used for newer garage door installations, and sit horizontally above the middle of the garage door. when your garage door opening, torsion springs slowly twist and coil on the shaft whenever force is applied manually or by the garage door opener.
Torsion springs come in a wider variety of options, including various wire sizes and lengths. depend on your garage door weight, height, track radius these variations are calculated specifically to your garage door.
