Torsion springs are a crucial component of most garage door systems and must be correctly installed. The Garage Door springs are twisting steel which retains the force in the twist of the internal bar, and are responsible for opening and closing the Garage Door. The Torsion springs act as a counterweight to the door. When the door closes, it pulls on cables that tightly coil the springs, creating a buildup of tension. Torsion springs are located at the upper section of the Garage Door and are usually mounted on the Garage Door header. The average torsion spring has a lifespan of about 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the Garage Door or approximately seven to eight years, ( although longer-lasting spring systems exist) depending on how frequently its used .
