Torsion Spring Cycle Rating
Garage door torsion springs are rated by cycle life. Spring cycle is one open and close of a garage door, which can be increased with the upgrade to high-cycles. Ideally, you should plan on replacing your garage door spring after 10,000 cycles. The average life span for these things is about 10-15 years, but if they're heavily used or haven’t been maintained properly then the lifespan can decrease dramatically. If your family uses the garage frequently or if it’s full of heavy equipment, investing in high-cycle garage door torsion springs may be a wise decision.
High Cycle Springs
While standard torsion springs can only handle 10,000 cycles before they wear out and need to be replaced or repaired- high cycle ones go up to 100000. Homeowners can greatly increase the life of their doors by adding high-cycle springs. As most residential doors are not large enough for a 100k cycle, these types do not last nearly as long at around 50K cycles on average. The higher the cycles, the more durable your springs will be. High-cycle springs can withstand regular use and still work well with less force to open or close than low-cycling ones would require.
Opt for high cycle garage door springs because they have a longer lifespan. Besides, they also are cost-effective. If you choose a 30000 cycle spring, divide that by 1095, and you have 27.40 years. A 30000 cycle spring lasts longer. Consider replacing your broken torsion springs with high cycle springs if you need a longer garage door springs lifespan, convenience, and durability.
