Whether you know it or not, garage doors are extremely heavy. Since they’re supposed to serve several purposes, including protection and insulation, they’re usually large, sturdy, heavy bulks of strong material.
Bearing in mind these doors also have to easily and smoothly slide up and down to allow vehicles to enter and leave the garage, you can imagine the strength of the torsion springs used to move them and the amount of energy stored within them.

Let’s start with the don’ts – so we can keep you safe. As mentioned, these torsion springs, which are responsible for the door’s movement, store considerable energy within them. They carry a heavy load and are in charge of its controlled movement. Trying to release a garage door’s spring on your own, without the professional knowledge or equipment can result in serious injury. Imagine a bullet being propelled out of a barrel and you’ll know what to expect out of a torsion spring that gets suddenly released with nothing holding it back or in place. The impact can be devastating.
