OIL TEMPERED SPRINGS vs GALVANIZED SPRINGSA word of caution: Garage door springs are incredibly dangerous and should only be repaired or touched by a trained professional. This is because the springs need to remain under constant tension in order to function properly
Oil tempered springs are made from hardened steel. They are not manipulated in any way. True hardened oil tempered springs will never need adjusting and last longer than galvanized springs. They are set to provide a true 10,000 cycle life span! Oil tempered springs, however, do require an annual lubrication to prevent rust build up and to keep the coils lubricated to reduce friction between the coils. Taking 5 minutes of time once a year to spray lubricant on your springs and on the hinges, rollers and bearings on your door will reduce noise, stress and keep your hardware working in perfect fashion.
