Garage Door Cable Drums
When A1 Garage Door Service installs your new garage door, one of the components included will be a garage door drum. It works alongside your door springs for the smooth operation of your garage door mechanism. It also keeps your garage door balanced as it opens and closes.
There are three types of garage door drums:
- Standard lift – Generally used for most residential garage doors
- Vertical lift – Most commonly used in industrial or warehouse settings
- High-lift – An increased vertical rise for the door; horizontal track closer to ceiling
Each type of cable drum is designed to accommodate/balance the door based on the maximum door height, overall weight of the door and the cable thickness and length.
Over time and if not properly maintained, your garage door may become noisy or shaky. This is likely due to a problematic garage door drum that may have a buildup of dirt and rust.
In order to know how you can properly maintain your garage door drum or if you need it replaced or repaired, just contact A1 Garage Door Service at (844) 236-8448.
