What is a torsion spring?
Unlike extension springs, torsion units work by utilizing torque, which means they twist and unwind in order to generate the tension needed to help the panels move. They are usually mounted above the header and placed above the top section of the door. They do not contract or expand whenever the door is moving, which also means they are considered safer and less likely to go flying should they break. Our experts recommend using torsion springs as they are better at balancing the weight of the door.
How do I measure a garage door?
First, measure the door opening from left to right and from floor to top. Then, measure the width of the areas around the opening, between the top of the door to the ceiling (headroom) and between the door to the nearest rear point inside the garage (backroom). These measurements will determine what type of springs and opener you'll be able to use.
What is rolling code technology?
Newer models of garage door openers have a number of excellent security features. Rolling code technology changes the access code of the remote every time you use it, making it harder for potential thieves and burglars to gain access to your garage (and potentially the rest of your home) by using a generic remote.
