What's The Difference Between Spring Types?
Not sure what a torsion spring is compared to an extension? We're here to explain it! They both work similarly in function, as they both power your door's movement by creating tension that translates to stored energy. However, extension springs do this by stretching out, whereas torsion achieves this by twisting up to store the energy. This may not seem like much of a difference, but professionals do prefer torsion springs because they tend to last far longer and are safer as well. Extensions wear down more quickly from being pulled to their limit frequently, and when they break they usually snap and go flying to potentially cause damage.
