Broken Garage Door Spring Replacement
Garage Door Spring is a very important part of a proper operation of an Overhead Garage Door. Regardless of the gate material: Wood, Metal or Aluminum. They all must have a counterbalance mechanism to help the motor lift the Door with ease and when the motor is not functioning; a person can pull it up with a reasonable force.
The idea is simple since a Garage Door is heavy, engineers looked for an efficient and safe method to use as a counterforce to the weight of the door. Using weights are used as a counterbalancing element in the operation of elevators and can be used in gates as well. Some are very heavy gated in industrial structures and are fitted with weights however for Residential Garage Doors it was not so practical. The solution is a high carbon steel rod that is coiled into a Spring.
The spring was an excellent choice; it was small, flexible and could be manufactured to meet the range of tension force needed to counter the weight of the Garage Doors.
The diameter of the steel rod determined the strength of the garage door Spring. The bigger it is, the more tension weight it can hold.
The spring is indeed a good choice, however; the material tends to get “tired”. The repetitive use of the spring, temperature fluctuations, vibrations and lack of lubrication ultimately cause the Garage Door Spring to Break.
