Garage Door Springs
You may have noticed large springs in your garage door system. These springs are crucial for the proper functioning of your garage door, acting as a counter balance when the doors are lifted and lowered. A damaged spring will disable a garage door, but not to worry, Global Garage Door Service has a wide assortment of springs in stock and our service professionals are available 24/7 for emergency repair. Not only do we have a full stock of torsion and extension springs, we also stock springs commonly used in custom designs.
Global Garage Door Service professionals can help you determine which spring you need and will happily install according to your schedule. Additionally, we offer advice on how you can keep your springs in perfect working condition so repairs are few and far between. Our service professional will arrive promptly, work efficiently and have your garage door spring problem resolved quickly.
Torsion springs are installed overhead directly to the metal bar installed above your garage door and function to carry the weight of the door, transferring it to the metal stabilizing bar to which it is attached. Attached to this bar is a spool of cable that acts along with the unwinding spring to pull open the garage door. Without torsion springs, opening your garage doors would be impossible. The length and diameter are directly related to spring size and determine the load this system can bear. Generally, one or two springs are sufficient for a residential garage door, but commercial doors require different grade springs and may need more than two. These springs are under pressure and should only be serviced by qualified professionals.
Extension springs are an integral part of the garage door design and are installed on the door frame or pulley of your garage door system. These springs take the weight of your garage doors as they are opened and closed and act to protect you from the weight of the doors. These springs use counter balance to carry the weight, expanding as the door is lowered and contracting as it is raised. Because these springs are under extremely high pressure, they should only be serviced by a professional to avoid injury or loss of lire.
As mentioned, garage door springs are an essential component in keeping your door functioning properly. Because your garage door springs are tension springs, they take a great deal of pressure, up to a ton on commercial model garage doors. When garage door springs fail, it can be extremely dangerous, as the door will suddenly crash down, often without warning, which is why it is imperative that your springs are maintained and checked often. Global Garage Door Service specializes in garage door maintenance and repair, so call us to schedule your garage door inspection. If your springs need attention, we will happily do so during your appointment.
