Extension springs– Stretch above the parallel to the horizontal tracks for garage doors. Springs are also attached to cables that are anchored to the bottom of the bracket of the garage door. Unlike Torsion springs instead of winding these springs. Extension Springs apply resistive force as the springs stretches storing mechanical energy that is used to open the garage door. Torsion springs– work by twisting or torsion and store mechanical energy when twisted. Special instruments are used to wind the coils of the spring which applies torque to the center shaft.
Bad Garage Door Spring Signs
If you are noticing your garage door opening unevenly or starting to wobble, it’s likely that your garage door springs are not balanced correctly. This will cause wear and tear on all the moving parts and eventually break a spring or damage your garage door.
The garage door spring allows a heavy garage door to be lifted with ease. Springs work together to balance the weight of the garage door allowing the opener to glide the door open and shut. If you were to lift your garage door it should feel like it only weighs a few pounds and should stay were you release it. If your garage door doesn’t stay or feels like it weighs more than 10lbs, that is a sign of your spring about to break or is aging.
