Garage doors can be operated manually (by hand) as well as automatically (by power assisted motor). In both cases the proper operation of the garage door is determined by the proper balancing of the garage door weight springs and related component hardware. An automatic power assisted motor cannot overcome an improperly balanced garage door. The weight of all garage doors is normally deceptive. Due to the fact that a properly functioning door appears easy to open and close many users do not realize the combined overall weight until springs fail to assist the door in its operation. In all cases regardless of the type of garage door the entire system of hinges track hardware and door opener work as a team. Problems with misalignment shifting or jamming can lead to problematic operation of a door. Counter forces imparted to a garage door not engineered into the components can lead to injury. Inappropriate maintenance or complete lack of maintenance has lead to severe bodily injuries. Forcing the operation of a garage door when one or more components have become damaged or broken has lead to serious bodily injuries. In all cases maintenance is a crucial and important aspect of proper operation of all door systems.
There will be times when your door may fail to operate. It happens from time-to-time no matter how well it is installed and maintained so there is no need to panic. More often that not the battery in your garage remote is dead or it is some other simple garage door repair. It is also a good idea to keep additional power back ups with you such as a manual device (generator UPS etc) or additional batteries. Or you can manually open the garage door until you figure out what the is causing the problem.
Your roller garage door comes with a remote to automatically open and close it. When you are approaching the garage door you simply press the button on your remote and the door opens by the time you reach the garage. Then you drive in press the button again and the door automatically closes. The Genie garage door opener utilizes their Intellicode software that changes the passcode that is transmitted from their garage remote to the garage to open it. You never have to worry about some electronically stealing your passcode copying it and opening it without your persission.
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.
