What are Torsion Springs and How Do They Work?
Torsion SpringsTorsion springs are one of the two types of garage door springs, the other being extension garage door springs. A torsion spring helps in balancing the garage door, making it easier to open or close. Because of the spring, you only need to apply the same pressure on the door whether you’re opening or closing it. The opener would be free from getting too much unnecessary strain. The torsion springs are mounted above the door and it has a metal tube that runs through the center and it has drums on both sides of the tubing. Every time the garage door is closed, drums move with the cables that are connected to the door’s bottom and it creates stored energy.
Torsion Springs WearWhen the garage door is opened, the springs unwind to release the energy and let the door open. The spring would then unwind as the door rolled to its open position. As it does so, it will lose both power and strain until the time that it would again be needed. If your garage door is used several times each day, then expect the torsion springs to wear out quicker and require repair or replacement.
