Torsion springs are yet another mechanism that governs the weight of the garage door by placing a strong beam at the top of the door. Through cables, the springs uncoil, making the door open. By recoiling, the door closes.
Every process in this mechanism works at the same time for smooth operation of the door. Torsion springs are made to withstand more weight and enable a door to be operated much easily. It also reduces the risk of injury to the average person. Wire size, inner diameter and the length of the spring will determine how capable the torsion spring will be. From these attributes, is is possible to know the weight threshold, frequency of use and the expectancy of the spring.
Regular residential doors typically use one spring, but larger doors and commercial doors use 2 or more springs. Door weight also determines the number of torsion springs.
Extension springs work by extending and contracting on the doors that have the stationary up and down mechanism.
When extension springs constrict, the door can open and close much easily due to the offset of the heaviness of the door. To open the door, the springs are drawn together. When the spring returns to its original position, the door closes. These strings are also subject to a lot of tension and therefore handling them with inexperience will lead to harm to the operator, the door system or the structural integrity of the spring.
Springs are delicate entities especially on account of all the pressure. It is therefore recommended that you schedule regular checks for them thus enabling replacements when needed. You can trust Master Garage Door Service for all your garage door spring management needs.
