A beautiful garage adds beauty and visual appeal to the house. Garage door is a large and wide door for the garage where cars and other vehicles are kept protected in a closed area. The garage door can be opened automatically with the help of remote control or opened manually. The garage doors are of several types’ namely single panel door, sectional door, and roller doors. They are mainly made up of aluminum, steel, wood, vinyl, polyurethane insulation etc. The garage doors are rolled upwards to open the garage and rolled down to close it. This mechanism is done by means of the torsion spring.

Garage door spring is one of the important parts in the garage. The garage door consists of two springs, one – the torsion spring and the other the extension springs. The springs are subject to lot of tension due to winding. When the door is opened, the springs release the tension and unwind. This turns the shaft, to which the tightly wound springs are attached. The shaft in turn turns the cable drums, placed at both ends of the door. The cable drums help in tying the cables around the grooves thus lifting the door. When the door is shut down, the cables loosen from the cable drums and the spring is rewound tightly. The make of the garage door spring must be good quality and must be anticorrosive. Frequent lubrication of the springs and rollers reduces noises from the door. Proper maintenance and checks need to be done on the garage door, as it is an important part of the house, where the car stays protected.

Garage door spares like the springs are vital part of the door. Earlier, custom-made spares from certain manufacturers were available only in selected shops. Now with the advent of internet, custom-made spares, branded and local brands are available at the click of a mouse. There are many websites dealing with garage door spares. Handles, locks, latches, sensors, security code identification system, remote control etc are spares, which are available universally. One can also buy the spares from self-help the tool kits and use the manual for the operation of the spares. In case the mechanism does not work properly or there is some other fault like loose cable, it is better to take the help of professional fitters. Good maintenance and care needs to be taken of the garage door, to increase the life of the same.
