INTRODUCTION TO TORSION SPRINGS

Torsion springs and proper hardware, do the heavy lifting in any garage door assembly.

A standard torsion spring helps to easily operate the garage door manually or with a garage door opener because the weight of the garage door is offset by the lift produced by the torsion springs. A properly engineered torsion spring, combined with the proper cable drums, cones, shaft and hardware, produces enough torque to lift heavy garage doors with minimal effort.
