The Dangers of Garage Door Springs: Fact or Fiction
Being in the industry, we know garage doors have a terrible reputation among homeowners. While we can appreciate the concern, most modern garage doors are, for the most part, completely safe. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t some truth to the stories.
There was a time when your garage door spring could maim you if you were around when a spring broke. The reasons for their danger were because they were:
- Constructed without safety cables
- Built without safety brackets
All of these aspects added to the infamous projectile factor of the original garage door design. They just did things differently back in those days. While most garage doors have since upgraded to safer torsion springs or extension springs with a safety cable, there are still some of the old models out there. Other issues that can arise with older models of garage doors are faulty hardware and the lack of advanced safety technology, meaning it could be dangerous when opening or closing. What can cause these door spring issues is rust and corrosion that form due to lack of maintenance and upkeep.
Dealing With Old Garage Door Springs
Fortunately, you’ll probably know if your setup is an old model and if you do still have insecure springs, we hope they’re in a garage where people don’t spend too much time or one where you’re not housing anything that could be damaged by a rogue spring. You can call one of our professional garage technicians to come out and take a look at your garage door springs, and they can let you know if they need replacement or repair. We are the experts when it comes to garage door spring repair in Phoenix! Don’t hesitate to call us today!
While newer extension springs or torsion springs are considerably safer, they can still cause some damage if they cut loose while you’re working on them. As garage door contractors, we recommend replacing all the old springs you can and always having a professional do the work for you. Even if you’re an adept handyman, garage door springs are loaded and cause severe damage if mishandled.
