The installation of sectional garage doors using extension springs or the “simple set torsion spring system” should be within the capabilities of anyone who possesses above-average mechanical skills and is able to follow instructions that are detailed while yet being simple to understand. Installing normal doors with torsion springs should never be attempted by anybody other than a certified professional. Due to the fact that we are unable to evaluate your level of experience, we strongly advise against installing overhead doors yourself and instead leaving the job to trained specialists.
Due to the fact that a rolling door is a big and weighty piece of machinery that travels with the assistance of electric motors and springs that are under a significant amount of tension, caution is strongly suggested. Moving objects, springs that are under tension, and electric motors are all possible causes of serious damage or even death. Please safeguard not just your own safety but also the safety of those who are close to you by adhering to these instructions.
Warnings and important precautions to take:
