With a torsion type of spring the energy is imparted or removed by rotating the spring clockwise or counter clockwise depending upon the direction of usage. With professional installation the complete loading of the torsion spring is controlled by the garage installer and is determined by the weight and size of the garage door that it is operating. When this type of torsion spring fails it remains attached and intact to the location on the horizontal control rod where it was mounted. I have not heard of or seen any torsion spring fly across a garage creating injury from failed components as with the stretched older style garage door springs. This is not to say that injuries have not occurred with the torsion style spring. The installation of this type of spring is generally safe when left to a trained garage door installation professional. Severe and serious injuries have occurred when untrained unqualified individuals have attempted to install or service this type of spring.

These doors can be chain driven either manually or can be automated using electric motors. Roll up doors require more frequent evaluation and servicing than a standard overhead garage door. The tracks that are mounted vertically on both sides of the garage opening need maintenance and cleaning more frequently and are often blocked by foreign obstructions or damaged by collision of some type. These roll up doors are often held open by some type of ratcheting action. Proper balancing of these doors is often more important than an overhead type of door as the weight of these type of doors is normally much greater than an overhead door.
