Types of Garage Door Springs We Offer  

GL Metal offers two main types of garage door springs well suited for residential and commercial applications. You can choose standard and customizable torsion and extension springs available in different sizes and specifications. 


1. Torsion Springs

A torsion garage door spring utilizes stored mechanical energy when the spring rests at full tension to move counterbalance cables, which propel the garage door when raising and lowering. The spring is installed in the counterbalance system above the garage door. 

The performance of torsion springs depends on the integrity, strength, and durability of every component. At GL Metal, we ensure all the components of our torsion springs function at their full potential.


2. Extension Springs

Extension garage door springs are installed on either side of a garage door parallel to the tracks. This type of spring lengthens as you close the garage door storing mechanical energy. 

The spring compresses and releases this energy to open the door. Our garage door extension springs are lightweight, affordable, and compatible with steel and wood sectional garage doors.
