Why the spring broke?
We wish there was one simple way to answer the question why roll up gate spring break? The reasons are many, any vary from one rollup gate to another. But if we were asked to give few possible reasons, we would say that the majority of broken springs is due to lack of maintenance, or since the spring wasn’t the right spring for the gate. For example: If you installed a spring which would be a good spring for a push up gate over a commercial rolling gate which is being used many times a day, it is just a matter of time before the spring will break. What we are trying to say is that there is no “one spring” that will fit any rollup door. Each door need different spring, according to the size of the rolling gate and how often/how many times it is being used a day.
Sometime a rollup door jump out of the tracks, and if the owner would contact a local company who repair rollup doors, he tried to force the door or the gate to move, and made a severe damage which resulted with a broken spring. Sometime the problem can be solved within seconds when you know what need to be done.
