When you start shopping for your garage door purchase one that isnt too big and bulky. A large garage opener can take up most of your headroom (the available vertical space of yoru garage) and limit your storage space. It also limits what type of vehicle that can enter and be stored in your garage. For instance SUVs will be incredibly hard to park if you have limited vertical space. Roller garage doors are less complicated to operate than sectional garage doors. They also have smaller and easier to handle panels which greatly reduces the risk of accidents.
If you are looking for a more conventional garage door for your home Mission Garage Doors has a full line of metal doors to meet your construction needs. Their steel carriage garage doors are embossed to give the look of a real wooden garage door without all the maintenance that an all wood door will require. In addition you can select a wood panel exterior that will provide desired weather natural wood that is currently in demand.
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.
This weakening of the springs or points of attachment would often lead to an inadvertent explosive failure flinging the broken spring components across the garage embedding the spring or steel components into the garage walls cars or other items in the path of travel. Unfortunately sometimes people were in the path of travel of these explosive occurrences. As these springs failed as an attempted safeguard some manufacturers devised a "caging" system for the springs. These cages were retrofitted onto the stretched springs in an attempt to capture the parts that would release if a failure occurred. While these caging devices were helpful they were not completely effective. Some of these spring devices are still in use today. Whenever this condition exists or the quality of garage components are questionable a qualified professional service technician should be consulted.
