Know Your Springs

Torsion Springs vs. Extension Springs

Depending on door size, torsion spring systems usually utilize one or two firmly wound springs. These springs are placed horizontally on a steel shaft and are equipped with cable drums at both ends. The torsion spring is attached to the header wall above the garage door. It contains a three-pronged foundation system including a center and two end bearing plates at one of its ends.

Extension spring systems are anchored on one or the other side of the garage door track. These springs stretch and shrink with the help of cables and pulleys when the garage door is in motion.

No matter what the type, your garage door springs are liable for assisting the garage door lift and lower. When lifting the door, tension is released and the spring helps with the lifting. When the door is lowered, the springs build up tension.
