Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
The springs used in garage doors are considered as the backbone of any typical garage door as they are responsible for maintaining the balance of the door and also they provide ease of opening and closing of the door. This act balancing of the door can be sustained by either the stretching of the springs or by torque of special parts which assist in balancing and aligning the garage door balance.
Immense amount of caution is exercised at the time of the repair or replacement of the garage door springs because it often involves replacement of other garage door parts as well, which are tied with the springs. Many accidents, injuries and even deaths have been observed just because the repairer did not understand the gravity of the force involved behind the functioning of the springs. Only well qualified, expert and experienced garage door service providers understand the garage door springs technicalities, balancing of the weight of garage door, alignment of the garage door and working of all other parts of the garage door and more importantly how they all interlinked with each other.

Standard torsion springs are usually used in the residential garage doors. Any residential garage door uses one or at times two springs at a time. If a garage door is light weight then only one spring is used, and if he garage door is heavy in weight then two springs are used. Here the torsion spring s is mounted to the spring anchor bracket in the centre of the shaft right above the garage door. When two torsion springs are used in a garage door they tend to increase the safety of the door especially when one garage door spring is broken then the other one keeps the balance of the door and prevents it from falling and injuring any human or damaging household stuff.
Another type of garage door spring is the garage door extension strings which is usually mounted on the side s of the garage doors or above the horizontal tracks of the door. They work in the same way as the torsion spring does. Typically a residential garage door consists of two extension springs at each side where as a commercial door may use multiple springs at each side. While carrying out the repair and maintenance of the garage door spring the safety precautions should not be ignored at any point of time. You should make sure that children have not got access to the place where repairing work is in progress, you should avoid unnecessary movement at the repairing site, you should always wear protective eye-gear, protective clothing and never ever try to do the repair work all alone because in case of emergency someone is there with you to call for the help.
