Garage Door Repairs Kent . This garage door repair in Ashford Kent was to replace a broken garage door spring. The garage door concerned was a Cardale garage door in a double width. The older type, double Cardale garage doors had a large single spring each side. They are known as a Cardale blue spot spring and are normally black with a blue paint spot on the hook of the spring. The blue spot spring is often used to replace other Cardale double garage door springs of a different colour. The newer Cardale double garage doors have a multi-spring system on each side of the garage door, this allows continued operation of the door if a single spring is broken.
Garage Door Cables Repairs. Most garage doors are very reliable but without regular maintenance even the best garage doors can fail. The majority of canopy garage doors are operated by a large overhead torsion spring and garage door cables. This spring is under extreme tension and is responsible for winding up the side cables and raising the garage door.
Over time this spring can lose tension with a number of consequences. These include not holding the garage door up in the open position and the side cables becoming slack and very often tangling. We attended a garage door repair in Tunbridge Wells where a lack of tension on the overhead spring had caused the garage door cables to wrap around the winding cones. Once the garage door cables had been released and replaced, the overhead torsion spring was re-tensioned and all working parts were lubricated.
Although not common, side hinged/swing garage doors can be automated very easily. We were asked to turn a traditional pair of timber side hung garage doors in Uckfield East Sussex, from manually operated to electrically operated.

It also meant that each leaf of the door was held open even under windy conditions

Hormann Garage Door Repairs. Hormann garage doors are among the most popular and reliable garage doors sold in the UK. Their robust construction and wide range of popular designs make them a favorite with architects and developers. However even the best garage doors require regular maintenance.

This is a safety mechanism designed to prevent the garage door falling down when either the cables or spring fails.
