Oh, the buzz that happens on the Web about garage door springs…
Extreme ranges of opinion and practice lurk everywhere. Some people say it’s illegal to sell them, others advertise them to be as standard and common as pliers or wrenches.
Take this example: one merchant site I saw recently advertised a .273, 2″ or 1.75″ ID, up to 30″ spring for sale. Sound like a good selection?
Not. .273″ for either ID up to and including 30″ lengths are considered overstressed for all common garage door sizes. Even though engineering programs can do the math and spec the lift for a spring like this, customers would be left with a broken spring before they expected or desired. Particularly if they mismatch springs on a two-spring system.
DDM Garage Doors sources high-quality spring steel made in the USA and always seeks to sell matching springs, rated for door weight, with 10, 000 or more cycles–all delivered to you in the most cost-effective and time-efficient way possible.
