Torsion springs come in a wide variety of sizes and are considered safer than extension springs. They have a unique mechanism and are more reliable. Torsion springs are mounted horizontally above the opening when you pull the door down cables attached to the bottom force the springs to wind up. When you open the door, springs unwind, transferring the energy to the door, lifting it and opening it easily. These springs last for more than 5-7 years and if properly maintained can even last for more than that.
Due to their durability and longevity, torsion springs are used in a variety of garage door types, ranging from simple residential garage doors to heavy industrial garage doors that use multiple springs.

Extension springs are a cheaper option compared to torsion springs but their durability and use are widespread. It is installed above the horizontal tracks, so there are two springs that serve as counterweights. Each spring works independently even if they are calibrated for the same weight. These springs can bear enormous tension and shouldn’t be repaired by inexperienced technicians or individuals. If a spring snaps and is not backed by a cable, it can cause serious damage.
Even though extension springs are a cheaper option, they still require constant maintenance to increase their life. You can get in touch with us for maintenance, repair, and installation of springs of all kinds.
