Garage Door Springs

Garage doors have two different types of springs. One is known as torsion springs, and the other is extension springs. Both of these springs are used to counterbalance the weight of the garage door, allowing you to easily lift something that should be too heavy for the average person to lift. How can you tell which type of spring you have?

Look directly above the garage door. If you've got a spring that stretches and contracts as the door opens and closes, and that is mounted above the horizontal tracts, you have an extension spring. If, however, you've got a spring that is mounted on the bar that is directly above the door and that winds and unwinds as the garage door opens and closes, you've got a torsion spring.


Torsion Springs: All of our Torsion Springs are made with high-cycle steel wires designed to last anywhere from to 35,000 - 65,000 cycles up / down. They are coded springs which guarantees to be rust-free and to out last any other type of springs in the market. You should always replace both of your garage door springs at the same time to ensure safety and proper balance on the door.

Extension Springs: These springs are mainly used on single or very lightweight garage doors and are high-cycle double looped end springs. Coded springs are guaranteed to be rust-free. Again, you should always replace both of your garage door springs at the same time to ensure safety and proper balance of the garage door.
