Torsion springs are one necessary piece of garage doors. When they wear down or break, your garage door becomes useless. Knowing what a torsion spring is and what it does will help you when it’s time to replace it.
A necessary piece to your garage door
Tightly wound to create torque, torsion springs play a huge part in balancing the weight of the garage door. This balancing allows you to easily open and close your door manually.As the garage door opens, the torsion springs release torque so the rollers can go across the tracks to lift it.
You should have your garage door springs lubed, counterbalanced, and maintained every year. This helps ensure that your garage door springs will continue to operate properly. Bitter conditions, regular use, and lack of maintenance will weaken and damage your garage door spring, leading to it breaking. Our qualified technicians can replace your weak/broken torsion spring with our Max Life springs; they are assured to last longer than most people own their homes, more importantly, they come with a lifetime warranty!
It’s true, most residential garage doors come with two coil springs. Two springs keep each other in check in case one fails. This way your garage door doesn’t come down and crush your car or something else. Your garage door can only work well when both springs are in proper working condition.
Other Important Garage Door Parts
In addition to torsion springs, there are a few other garage door parts your door needs to work properly.
This shaft, located right above the garage door, has the job of keeping the torsion springs in place. Remember, these rods are only necessary for garage doors that use torsion springs.
Garage door drums are another important aspect of getting a garage door open. They are located on each end of the torsion rod and use its torque to adjust the cables up or let them down, as well as stabilize and balance the door.
The rollers move along the garage door track as it opens and closes. Furthermore, there are separate kinds out on the market. Some made of steel; some of nylon. The most preferred material is nylon. They are strong, dependable, not to mention made of higher-quality materials, yet affordable. Nonetheless, rollers are one of the main reasons that garage doors can be so loud. It’s generally agreed upon that nylon rollers are quieter, yet the ball bearings in rollers also affect the sound.
Ball bearing rollers are high-quality, easy-to-find rollers on the market.In fact, they are the most sought after due to their extreme life span. These rollers can last 10 to 70 years!
Time To Replace Your Springs
The lifespan of a basic torsion spring, on average, is seven to nine years. The more you use your garage door, the shorter its life will be. Make a habit of occasionally checking if your torsion springs are in good condition. Do this by disconnecting the motor from your garage door and opening it manually.
Why Replacing Torsion Springs Is So Important
When the garage door consists of two springs, both need replacing at the same time. Torsion springs tend to break down at the same rate. If you replace one now, it won’t be long before you do the next one. Having both torsion springs in working order is necessary, so you can stay free of harm and frustration.
