Lifecycle of Torsion Springs


The lifecycle of extension springs is approximately 10,000 cycles, the torsion springs is up to 15,000 and are guaranteed for up to seven years. There are some factors, which can shorten the life of torsion springs. If you add anything like paint, hardware, windows and layers of insulation, this will contribute to the weight of the door. The added weight will decrease the life of the door.

Maintenance


It is easy to maintain the condition of torsion springs since there are fewer parts than there are with extension springs.

Ease of Motion


Since torsion springs are installed on lighter doors, there is more control and ease of motion.  When the door opens with ease, your door remains properly balanced, resulting in fewer repairs.

There are some advantages to both the torsion spring system and the extension spring system. Our technician will be able to explain what you need to know in order to make a well-informed decision related to the type of springs for installation.
