What Is A Garage Door Spring?
Garage door springs are devices that offset the weight of a garage door. This allows it to open and close with ease. They are usually metal springs that are wrapped together to be able to hold the weight of the door. If you have a door that weighs 100 pounds, you need a spring that can handle that weight. If you did not have a garage door spring, the door could come down extremely hard when closing. Opening the door would also require much more effort applied by you or a machine.
Types of Garage Door Springs
There are many different types of garage door springs. Mostly, springs can be custom built to fit each door. Yet, even in these cases, they can fall into one of the main categories. Some types of garage door springs include:
These springs store energy extending or stretching. Energy, that they end up using to hold down weight when they are asked to contract. Usually, there are two of these springs per door.
If you have a simple door operating system, you may have this type of spring. It is only one spring that relies on the effort put on it by the pulley to be able to work. When something goes wrong, they typically just get replaced.
Looking for something a bit stronger? Double looped springs are the upgraded version of open looped springs. They can usually hold more weight. Yet they tend to be harder to replace.
Duration is the main benefit that you obtain with these types of springs. These springs can be used to hold doors of over 200 pounds. They are built to last for a long time. The problem is that when they do reach the end of their life span, they can be hard to replace. Of course, even though it can turn out to be complicated, we can get it done.
There are a wide variety of different types of torsion springs out there. They can be set up one to a door or up to four to a door. They can be modified to fit unique door designs. Granted, replacing unique designs when things go bad, is also something complex.
