They are also one of the most dangerous, so it's important to know how to safely install and maintain them. To prevent any injuries, safety cables must be put in place to hold them in position.Extension springs are located above the horizontal tracks on both sides of the garage door. They provide counterbalance for the weight of the door, making it easier to open and close.It is important to have your extension springs inspected regularly by a professional, as they can wear out over time and break suddenly. A broken spring can cause serious injury or even death, so it's not something to take lightly.

Torsion garage door springs use torsion to force the garage door open and shut. They can be used individually or in pairs. A single garage door will usually have one torsion spring. This spring is responsible for counterbalancing the weight of the door so that it can be easily opened and closed. These springs are located above the garage door opening and use torque to open and close the door. Torsion springs are generally safer than extension springs because they are not under as much tension when they snap. However, if you have a torsion spring system, it is important to have it regularly serviced by a professional to ensure that it is working properly.
