Garage Door Cables
Although they are a small component on your garage doors, the cables help the doors operate properly. The cables play an integral role in safely and smoothly opening and closing the garage door. The cables help to lower and close the garage door. They are made of heavy-duty materials that can last for several years before they need to be replaced. The more you open and close your garage door, the more likely it is that the springs will have to be replaced sooner. There are three kinds of cables involved in opening and closing the garage door: the retaining cable, the emergency release cable, and the lifting cable. If you encounter a malfunction in any of these cables, it can affect your garage door’s ability to operate safely and quickly. The lifting cable helps to open the garage door, and it is the most likely of the three cables to break. The lifting cables control the axle that helps the door open and close. If the lifting cable breaks, you won’t be able to use your garage door as easily.
