The springs are vital parts of the mechanism that operates a garage door. They support the movement of the entire door – the opening and closing, or raising and lowering. It gets more complicated, however, when having to identify the type of springs you own or the right one to use as a replacement for optimal functionality. We can teach you about the differences and also identify exactly what you need for your home and for a commercial space equally. Here are the two common types of garage door springs: extension and torsion coil trampoline springs.
The extension garage door springs are located above the upper tracks, placed on both sides of a door. There is a safety cable running through both of these parts, which is attached to the wall or to the ceiling. The cable has the role to ensure that springs, when broken, do not cause more damage. It helps control them. This model is fit for usage with lightweight doors.
Torsion coil trampoline springs work in a different way, being attached single or in pair. These are located right above the door opening and are suitable for heavier doors. Thanks to the torsion coil trampoline springs, doors come down and close slowly instead of fast and hard. The oil-tempered spring variety is of great help, but it starts to form rust too soon sometimes. Another option is represented by the galvanized springs, which last for longer. These are made of very hard wire coated with zinc or galvanized.
It is essential to know these types before proceeding to any replacement works. If you are unsure about your choices, you are better off to ask our specialists at Garage Door Springs Menlo Park. Discussing with a pro is bound to reveal to you many aspects you weren't aware of, and thus help make a truly informed choice. If you contact our specialized company when your garage door stops from working normally, we will come over and do a quick troubleshooting, then proceed to repairing or replacing the broken springs, if this is the cause of the malfunction.
