Spring Life Cycles
If you have a 32″ long spring, with a 2′ ID (Inside Diameter), and .250″ Wire diameter, this spring on a 7′ tall door would last approx. 15,000 cycles. If you moved up a step in wire size, you would need a 40″ x 2″ID x .262″ spring, this spring would last approx. 30,000 cycles.
Things to consider before upgrading spring life cycles:
1. How good of door do you have? is it going to last a long time.
2. The springs you have should be at least 10,000 cycles, but may be less, this last around 3 years if they open it 10 times a day. How long do they need to work.
3. Would you consider using the front door more often, the front doors handle is usually rated at 200,000 cycles and up.
