Repairment & replacement in broken garage door springs of all kinds
All mechanical components, such as the garage door springs, have a certain life span, a range depending on the use and operation of a broken garage door can be the cause of an accident and should be corrected as quickly as possible. The springs of a typical garage door have a life span of more than 28,000 openings. After this use the spring starts to wear out. This is the a phenomenon called the stress of the spring. Springs are a consumable part of the mechanism of a garage door.
Preventing and properly servicing the garage door’s mechanical parts ensures proper operation and saves us from various damage and problems.
On the roof of garage doors a key point to be checked for possible damage is the garage door springs that offset the weight of the door so that the garage door manually opens and closes without the need for force or effort.
If a garage door spring breaks, we must immediately arrange for the replacement of its springs and do not attempt to operate it.
For additional security:
- If it operatew manual, we lock it.
- If it operates automatic, we disconnect its drive mechanism, ie the motor from the current.
Some important things about garage door springs that you may also need to know:
You must always change all springs together.
If, for example, the left spring set is broken, we have to change the right as well, because its life span is already exhausted.
Changing springs is a procedure that must be done with care, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, because the energy accumulated in the springs is extremely high. You must keep in mind that a roof garage door is a fairly heavy and bulky object that rises at a considerable distance from the ground.
If we have a good garage door, we do not have to worry about breaking the springs (of course, this does not mean that we should not take the necessary and recommended precautions, such as being at a distance from the garage door while it is in motion). Because the maximum spring force is exerted when the door is lowered, a spring is much more likely to break when the garage door is very close to its lowered position. This, combined with the safety devices of a good garage door, turns an accident such as a breaking of the springs into simple disturbance (until they are changed) and not at a risk.
If any of the springs are broken (and if there is any damage to the door) we do not attempt to operate the garage door as it is, as it poses a risk to both the door and the user.
The MICHAEL-SA spring-making industry manufactures springs for precision garage doors and high strength with the best steel.
There are all types of garage door springs and are available in our warehouses, and ready for delivery.
In the case of non-stocking and by providing a sample or the technical characteristics of the spring, we manufacture quickly and exactly the same spring of any shape. It is perfectly compatible for any type of garage door with all the manufacturer’s specifications.
Just bring us the sample or the size from the garage door spring and we will build a new spring for the garage door quickly safely and inexpensive.
