A key part of most of our garage doors is the springs. These are installed to act as a force against gravity; essentially assisting you in lifting up and opening the garage door – either yourself or with an automatic door opening mechanism. Thus, the springs are a valuable element of the doors and, if damaged, will significantly reduce your doors’ function. It is therefore important that springs are well maintained.
Our doors are, of course, all installed with high quality springs ensuring that they will deliver well and last as long as possible. However, as with most products that are under constant motion or tension, they do have a limited lifespan – generally 10,000 cycles (1 cycle = complete open and close circuit of your door). It is possible to get extended lifespan springs, which might be beneficial if you are accessing your garage on a particularly regular basis. Otherwise, our high-quality springs should suit your basic garage needs.
Lubrication is key for spring maintenancem, and many different oils and greases are readily available to enable you to self-lubricate your springs and any other moving parts of your garage door. Of course we can help you with this, but it is a straightforward maintenance task that many clients like to carry out themselves.
The key reason for spring damage is unavoidable wear and tear. However, other factors contributing to damage may include rust, which might depend on your weather; and simply improper maintenance. Minor maintenance tasks, such as checking your doors’ balance, will help to avoid premature damage, thereby extending its lifespan. We can always provide advice and assistance with such checks – just get in touch.
Despite proper maintenance will eventually reach the end of their lifespan. You will most likely notice this if your door is particularly heavy during opening; if it no longer runs smoothly on its tracks; if any cables are dangling from the mechanism; or if the door hangs misaligned. At this point, it is important to get in touch with us as soon as possible and we will come and organise rapid spring replacement. The sooner you contact us the better – hopefully we can replace the springs as the damage onsets, before the springs are completely broken to avoid any additional complications that might occur.
