Springs for Gates
Torsion springs are specifically designed for the purpose of being installed onto gates, doors, and the like, in order to complete a leverage function by making it easier to lift or lower the object. These springs are made up of round wire which is helically wound to make coils. The ends of torsion springs are known as legs, since the wire on the end coils stick out like a lever. The torsion spring legs are what allow for your gate or door to apply a rotational force on the spring, which is necessary for the movement of the object.
There are a set guidelines you should follow before purchasing torsion springs for your gate or door. Knowing the weight and length of the object is vitally important because this dictates the amount of spring force you will need. In addition, there is variety in terms of the diameter of the Torsion Spring itself, which also factors into its strength. You should also be familiar with the width of the gate or door, in order to know how much room you have for several torsional springs to work in parallel and be able to support its weight.
