The spring of any garage door mechanism is one of the most crucial items in the system.
The springs inside the garage are part of a counterbalance system that provides a balanced force to lift the doors.
Without a proper spring, there will be nothing supporting the door panels.
Due to the spring’s counterforce, garage owners can lift the doors from the bottom and slide them easily over the top head manually.
Remember, the panels are hefty in material, weighing up to 200 pounds or more.
Using only cables and rollers may cause gradual compromise to the support of the door slabs.
Any damage or issue with the spring also leads to problems with the door.
If you suddenly can’t open the garage, or if you experience a hanging door in place, it’s best to book for a garage door spring installation.
Here at Lone Star Garage Doors Austin, we can replace and adjust the springs in your mechanism.
We can install all types of springs to any garage door.
Types of springs
Knowing the type of spring inside your garage helps in making things more efficient.
You can’t just buy another spring for installation as springs follow measurements and specifications.
Give our team a call to measure and verify the type of spring inside your garage.
Once we get the information about the spring, we can select and install these items in your mechanism.
Torsion springs produce a torque force that’s enough to lift the heavy weights in the track.
Torque is the rotation force along the axis of an object.
As the torsion springs rotate, it produces the force that forces the door panels to lift along the tracks while the rollers slide the panels.
Bigger torsion springs are required for bigger garages.
Pro: Torsion rods contain the torsion springs, making these items that store high amounts of force safer in case of snapping and damage.
Con: Tension springs cost more than tension springs.
Another type of spring is the tension spring.
This time, tension springs use tension force to provide stored force to lift the heavy panels.
When the springs are uncoiled and stretched, the force inside the coils supports the position of the door.
As the door lifts higher on the tracks, the springs become less tense and coil back to their original shape.
Pro: Tension springs are more affordable and fit smaller garages better.
Con: Over time, the shape of the coils will not go back to a fully coiled or compressed spring as the spring loses shape over time due to frequent stretching.
