TORSION SPRINGS

Torsion springs for single and double sectional garage doors

Springs should never be adjusted or replaced by individuals who are not properly trained to perform this task and may not have the proper tools.

 

Torsion Springs • Once the springs reached its life-cycle, it may break, effectively releasing all the tension and no longer assisting to balance the door.

The spring has the most tension when the garage door is in the down position and as a result this is the most likely position for the spring to break. 

That is not to say the spring could not fail while the door is in a raised position which would result in the door crashing down.

This is why it is important to never walk under a garage door in motion.

 

Garage door springs have limited life span. This life span is measured in cycles with the door going up and coming back down counting as one cycle. While there are various life span options, the most common garage door springs come with a 10,000 cycle life expectancy. Your spring replacement frequency will be determined by your garage door usage. Below you can see the expectancy of a 10,000 cycle spring determined by daily use: 

  • 2 times daily = about 14 years

  • 4 times daily = about 7 years

  • 6 times daily = about 5 years

  • 8 times daily = about 3 years

Broken Springs

Continuing to operate your garage door with a broken spring is very dangerous and can cause additional damage to the garage door and garage door motor. 

A spring replacement is one of the most common repairs required on a garage door. These springs come in varying sizes and act as a balance, lifting most of the garage door weight. This allows the door to easily open and close manually or with the assistance of a garage door motor. 

Our team of knowledgeable and friendly professionals has experience replacing broken springs on garage doors and will gladly assist you. Replacing a garage door spring can be very dangerous and we highly encourage you to contact us to handle this repair today for you!
