Torsion Spring Information

What Garage Door Springs Do I Need?

There are two types of springs used for garage doors—torsion springs and tilt springs. Torsion springs sit just above the top frame of the door, whilst extension springs usually run along the door’s sides and by the upper door track. Wholesale Garage stocks a wide range of stock torsion springs to suit standard sectional garage doors of specific sizes.

To work out what you need, you will need to measure the height and width of your garage door. Then, compare this size to our range of garage door springs.

For example, if your garage door is 2.2m high and 4.5m wide, you would need a Code 8 torsion spring. We have a chart showing what code suits what door sizes on every product page for your convenience.

How to Replace Garage Door Spring

It is important to understand that installing garage door springs can be incredibly dangerous if done improperly. Please ensure you wear proper PPE, including but not limited to safety glasses & gloves, with no loose clothing. We recommend that only a qualified, licensed professional install or adjust torsion springs.

We can provide advice, but it would be general in nature. It would not take your garage doors specific requirements or condition into consideration.
