Titan Garage Door Cable Replacement and Repair Services
Your overhead garage door is a complex piece of machinery. It consists of a number of different parts that all need to work together, and each component is crucial for the smooth operation of the door. The cables play an integral role in the functionality of your overhead door. They work with the door springs to raise and lower the door. As the door opens and closes the cables unwind and rewind around a drum or drums. When the cables break or if they are out of alignment, your door will not function.
Almost all commercial and residential garage doors operate with a seven to 10-foot length of cable that carries the entire weight of the door. Garage door cables are made from dozens of small diameter wires wound together into a thin rope. It is this wire rope that gives the cable its strength, along with the capacity to maintain tension. When you consider that most overhead door cables are only about one-eighth of an inch in diameter, it is really quite remarkable.
Why Call the Professionals?
There are two common types of garage door cable in use today: cables used with torsion springs and cables used with extension springs. It’s important not to attempt to repair a damaged or broken cable or garage door safety cable yourself. There’s a lot of room for error, and the potential for accidents is very real. Instead, call the professionals. Remember, the cables hold the entire weight of the garage door, and ensure it operates smoothly.
When a cable is broken or frayed it poses a safety risk to you and your family, not to mention your vehicle. Torsion spring cables, in particular, need special care as the way they are wound and secured needs to be specific and precise. Our fully qualified and insured technicians have the knowledge and the right tools for dealing with any cable job.
Never attempt to cut garage door cables yourself! If you suspect that there may be a problem, you need to contact us as soon as you possibly can. Cutting overhead door cables is a serious task that requires expertise and experience. Also, be aware of cables that have already snapped or fractured as they could cause further damage to your door opener mechanism. This could end up costing you a significant amount of money. Worse than that, the cables could cause personal injury or damage to your property.
