How Torsion Spring System Works?
When Winding up the garage door springs, we create the necessary torque to lift and lower your overhead door. By transferring the torque from the spring to the cable drums using the head shaft, we keep the garage door cables taut. Subsequently, we are using the tension from the springs to support the weight of your garage door. we do this by transferring energy from the garage door springs through the garage door cables.
When the door is opening and transferring to the horizontal tracks, the torque remaining in the springs allows the overhead door to stay in an open position.
The high tension in the torsion spring system is what gives us the ability to lift and lower our door. As such, you will harshly feel any damage to this system.
How Long Do Garage Door Springs Last?
Your typical garage door torsion spring will last 10,000 to 15,000 cycles. A cycle is one opening and closing of your garage door. As we typically install springs together, we recommend replacing both when one reaches the end of its cycle life. The reasoning behind this is that the second spring should follow shortly. Not to mention, having springs in different conditions accelerates the wear and tear of the newer spring.
