In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above, a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end, while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables, connectors and pulleys, the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring, the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition. With a torsion type of spring, the energy is imparted or removed by rotating the spring clockwise or counter clockwise depending upon the direction of usage. With professional installation, the complete loading of the torsion spring is controlled by the garage installer, and is determined by the weight and size of the garage door that it is operating. When this type of torsion spring fails, it remains attached and intact to the location on the horizontal control rod where it was mounted. I have not heard of or seen any torsion spring fly across a garage, creating injury from failed components as with the stretched older style garage door springs. This is not to say that injuries have not occurred with the torsion style spring. The installation of this type of spring is generally safe when left to a trained garage door installation professional. Severe and serious injuries have occurred when untrained, unqualified individuals have attempted to install or service this type of spring. In most installations, a warning tag is left attached adjacent to the torsion spring when the garage door is installed. This tag warns of the danger associated with the stored energy of this spring, and alerts untrained individuals to not attempt any repair, adjustment or to even touch the spring and associated hardware. When the label that should be attached to this spring becomes damaged, is removed or tampered with, it is important that a new warning label be reattached immediately to show the dangers of this spring tension

Well there are those beyond redemption of course but for most of us we have to admit that the garage is not exactly how we would like it. In fairness that probably doesn’t mean we are psychologically unhinged it just means that we haven’t got round to it and even when we do, where do we start and how?

There are many features which come with modern remote control garage doors. They can have courtesy lights which turn on when the door is open and turn off after a certain period of time. There are others which have carbon monoxide sensor to allow opening of gates. Other modern types also include those which open with finger print facilities.

You can be guaranteed that you’re doing everything correctly when you’re consulting your manual. This efficiently saves time and effort when you want to install a new garage door opener tool or accessory such as a new code pad or a motion sensor. regardless of the brand, a garage door manual always contains pertinent information including the date of manufacture, warranty information, the names of parts, model numbers, and of course, the installation directions. there are also information in the manual on where to get spare parts from. Consult your manual if you’re currently in need of a circuit board, a replacement sprocket, or any other parts of the garage door system. generally, the manual comes with the purchase. However, some companies don’t include a product manual and only give it out re-actively. If you find no manual with your new purchase, you can always request from the manufacturer through online correspondence.

But when a garage is transformed into an extra living area, the garage door on the part of the garage where the car will be stored will have to be chosen so that it complements the appearance of the remodeled portion of the garage.
