Garage Torsion Springs
Garage door torsion springs are an important part of your garage door. For one thing, they do all of the heavy lifting. When you press the button on your garage door opener remote, it doesn’t open the door itself—the power opened by the motor merely activates the torsion springs, which pull the door up along the tracks.
The major benefit of a torsion spring system is that the door moves much more smoothly. With torsion springs, high-tension steel rods are used instead of extension springs, providing a smoother opening and closing action.
The sectional nature of the door is another advantage to this design. Most roll-up doors are made from one piece of thin metal that can bend, dent or warp over time. That’s not so with sectional garage doors, which are comprised of several interlocking metal panels. This allows for greater stability and durability and also helps them to better withstand impacts during severe weather events, such as hail storms.
Another advantage to a sectional door is that it is more versatile in terms of how it can be opened and closed. Garage door openers can be installed either overhead or on the side of your garage door frame. It’s also possible to install an opener on the wall inside your garage if you have a side-hinged door, which opens horizontally along a track instead of vertically like most traditional garage doors do.
The garage torsion spring is the mechanical device that lifts most of the weight of a garage door so that the door can be opened manually or by an electric opener. The torsion spring is mounted on a metal rod, called a torsion tube, which is suspended from the header wall above the garage door. The springs are coil-shaped and made of metal, with either ends anchored to an end bearing plate or attached to two cable drums.Torsion springs are a common garage door parts replacement. When springs become weak or broken, it can cause a lot of problems for the garage door and may start to damage your home. Because they do this heavy lifting every time you open and close your garage door, garage torsion springs are under a lot of tension and are very dangerous to handle without the proper training.

Garage doors are heavy and lift using springs that are under extreme pressure. These springs require special tools and knowledge to replace. To prevent injury, we recommend that you work with a professional garage door technician. We also recommend measuring the existing springs and looking in our catalog for the springs we have listed for your door weight to find the closest match. Please feel free to contact us for assistance with selecting a new torsion spring.
Garage door torsion springs experience a lot of wear and tear because they have to bear the weight of the entire garage door. That includes the panels, hardware, and anything else on the garage door itself. When something happens to your garage door, it’s usually these springs that end up breaking first. They’re also under a lot of tension — which is why they can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing when you replace them.
Torsion springs, extension springs, and related door hardware can cause serious injury or death if not handled and installed properly. Professional installation is recommended.
