What Are They Used For?
Your door wouldn't move an inch without them. You may think that it’s the cables' job to pull your door up, but that’s not entirely the case. These garage systems are far heavier than they seem, and therefore appropriate force must be applied in order to effectively pull them. A common misconception is that the opener is responsible for the door's movement, but the components doing the actual "heavy lifting" are actually the springs.
The type of spring your system has determines how this energy is gathered. Extension means this component stretches out, and the tension from that stretch stores the power needed. The torsion type, on the other hand, uses the act of twisting up tightly to achieve the same goal. In both cases, this continuous gathering and releasing of tension on a daily basis, and a couple or more times a day at that, takes its toll over the years, which is why these components eventually need to be tended to.
