All About Torsion Springs

broken garage door springs - we fix!

In addition to providing security, garage doors can enhance a property’s aesthetic appeal. That being said, they come with their own set of problems that need to be addressed promptly and correctly in order to ensure their longevity. The maintenance and continued function of all the garage door parts, especially the torsion springs, is one such problem.

TORSION SPRINGS FOR GARAGE DOORS: WHAT ARE THEY?

Garage door springs come in a variety of types, and torsion springs are among the most common and most important components of a garage door. A torsion spring counterbalances the weight of your garage door, making it easy to open and close it. A garage door without a torsion spring would be very difficult to operate.

Wound vs Unwound Torsion Spring

Wound springs are tightly coiled and have more torque, making them ideal for heavy doors. Unwound springs are less tightly coiled and have less torque, making them better suited for lighter doors.

Regular Inspections

If you notice any damage to your garage door spring, you should replace it immediately. Garage door springs can break suddenly and cause serious injuries.

KEEPING YOUR TORSION SPRINGS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER:

  • If your door is unbalanced, your torsion springs will have to work harder and could wear out sooner
  • Regularly lubricate the springs with light oil to ensure smooth operation.
  • Check the springs periodically for wear and damage and replace them if necessary. Call a professional garage door repair company to ensure the spring is properly installed when it’s replaced.
