Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
There are only two basic categories of garage door springs but still some differentiations associated with their size, durability, lifespan and application. With torsion and extension springs being the two types used for residential application, attention is required when choosing a new spring because it must match the door's requirements in terms of its weight. Springs are installed because they are made of strong coils, which stretch or create torque in order to move the door up and down and keep it open. Their force is what makes the door move, but it must be equivalent to the door's weight. Springs are tensed in order to do their job, but this tension can be very dangerous to you if it's suddenly released. Very few things can be as dangerous as a broken garage door spring flying against you. Our company recommends frequent maintenance and immediate replacement when spring's lifespan is over.
All springs are made of steel, which undergoes a special drawing process so that the expected wire diameter will be achieved. The wires are stretched, dyed and coated with special lubricants until the expected result is accomplished. What makes oil-tempered garage door springs extremely durable is that after the drawing process, the wires are heated to very high temperatures, then cooled quickly and reheated again. This process makes them very resistant and durable, and the only downside with these types of springs is that they leave oil residues and can leave a bit of a mess during installation.
Galvanized torsion springs made a revolutionary entrance in the market because they look nice and don't leave dirty smudges. These types of springs undergo the same drawing process as oil-tempered ones with the exception that are not heated. These springs are zinc coated before the drawing process. The downside with these springs is that the galvanizing process makes them weaker. This means that these springs won't last for long and will need constant maintenance.
