Broken Torsion Springs
Torsion springs are located above the garage door and they are what lift the actual weight of the garage door. Most doors weigh between 150 to 250 pounds and without working springs, the garage door opener cannot lift the door. Attempting to use a garage door opener to lift a garage door with a broken spring can cause numerous parts on the opener to break.
TYPES OF GARAGE DOOR SPRINGS
Unity Garage Doors are knowledgeable with both types of springs, Extension Springs and Torsion Springs and can quickly analyze the problems associate with garage door springs which is broke, loose or not working.
The solution can be springs replacement or adjustment. Broken Springs are commonly accrue in garage door repair.
There are commonly used springs and several types of garage door spring:
To operate your garage door, extension springs expand and contract to produce the force required to lift your door. The average garage door is opened and closed over 600 times every year. This repetitive action is what leads to the creaks you hear on a daily basis.
The extension springs are mounted on both sides of the garage door alongside the track.
Since the steel safety cable will only need to be removed from the horizontal support bracket only removal of safety cable will allow to reinstall and replace the springs.
The extension springs attach to the track and through a series of pulleys and cables to the bottom bracket on the garage door located on the bottom section. The extension springs provide the energy needed to open the garage door while the cable and pulley system does the actual lifting. If any one of these components are damaged or not installed properly, the system will not function safely or properly.
Torsion springs In doors with torsion springs, the springs are installed parallel to the door. The springs wind up when the door is closed and then unwind when the door is opened. This process creates the energy needed to help lift the weight of the garage door.
Torsion springs are located on a bar above the garage door When one breaks you will see a gap of an inch or more between the coils.
These spring(s) are mounted on a shaft which spans the entire width of the door. On either end of the shaft, there are drums. These drums are used to help wrap cables which are attach from the drum to the bottom section of the garage door. torsion springs are subjected to bending stress rather than torsional stress. As the door moves to the closed position, the cable unwraps to safely lower the door. Typically, when a torsion spring breaks, these cables will loose tension and pop off of the drums.
Torsion springs can be designed to work in a clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation. Torsion springs are generally mounted around a shaft or arbor, and must be supported at three or more points
