Torsion springs are twisting steel which retains the force in the twist of the internal bar. If you think of the old fashioned mouse trap you have the idea. The power is created by twisting the mouse trap under pressure. The torsion spring's force is proportional to how the torque in the twist. This is usually an enclosed unit and thus safer than the loose spring. Torsion springs are located at the upper section of the door and are usually mounted on the door header. This kind of spring will be the far stronger of the two and can lift a weight up to 500 lbs. It has a lifespan of approximate 20,000 lifts.
Any homeowners will at some point experience broken garage door torsion springs that must be replaced. The average torsion spring lasts for about 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the garage door.
