Types of Spring Systems
Standard Extension Springs
These are coiled springs installed above the door’s horizontal track.
These include a shaft, spring and drum assembly installed directly above the door opening. The torsion spring distributes the garage door’s weight evenly, which is critical with a wide and/or extremely heavy door. Standard torsion springs should only be installed and removed by a trained garage door professional.
Addressing Richmond VA Garage Door Spring Services Needs
When it comes to troubleshooting garage door spring needs, Amelia Overhead Doors of Richmond is here to help. Here is a guide for how to recognize, and resolve, your garage door spring repair needs:
Garage doors use extension springs (located on either side of the track, often used on lighter doors), and torsion springs (typically one or two along the wall above the door opening for heavier doors). Here are some things to consider when comparing the safety of garage door springing systems.
- AOD door extension springs come with a “safety containment” cable system that spans the entire length of the spring.This feature helps prevent the possibility of injury. If your garage doors have extension springs, be sure they utilize a safety containment cable.
- Torsion springs are mounted on a shaft that acts as a containment system for that specific type of spring system.
- Serious injury can occur when a homeowner attempts to do it themselves–to remove or adjust the bottom bracket that connects the lifting cables to the spring system. This bracket is under extreme tension. If it becomes loose, it can separate from the garage door’s overall structure and cause injuries or property damage. (As a safety measure, Clopay’s patented Safe-T-Bracket™ cannot be removed until after the spring tension has been released).
