Clopay Garage Door Parts

Dents and Dings. Steel garage doors can accumulate dents and small dings over time, which greatly detracts from the door’s appearance. To help minimize unsightly dents, Clopay® garage doors are constructed with true 24, 25, or 27-gauge steel. Thicker steel lasts longer and dents less. The lower the gauge, the thicker the steel. However, a “sandwich” constructed steel garage door with two 27-gauge steel skins and a bonded insulating core will be stronger than a “steel frame” door with a single layer of 24-gauge steel. With non-insulated garage doors you may be able to push out the dings from the inside of the doors. If you are unable to do this, you may need to replace the dented sections or the entire garage door. Clopay sells replacement sections for most models.

Older garage doors or doors installed on new homes may not be well insulated or may not have full perimeter weatherstripping to seal out the elements. An insulated, well sealed door is especially important if you have living space above or adjacent to the garage. The insulated garage door will help keep those rooms warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and can also help reduce energy bills. Clopay® offers insulated garage doors with R-values up to 17.2 (R-value is a measurement of thermal efficiency of a door, or how well it insulates) Click here for an overview of our products.

Garage doors have a lot of moving parts, and if your door is opened and closed frequently, many of those parts will wear out. If your garage door springs are broken or improperly tensioned, the safety of your door is compromised, and your door will not function correctly. This condition will also put additional stress on your garage door opener, causing it to break or malfunction. Here are some components to check:

Sagging or bent garage door sections. Wood garage doors have a tendency to sag over time if they are not properly maintained. When the door is closed, you’ll see large gaps under the ends of the door. If your wood garage door is sagging, we recommend replacing it. Door sections can also be damaged by an automatic opener if they are not adequately reinforced.

Some model numbers are located on the side of the door.Ideal Door usually fixes labels on the very end of each section at one end of the door. If the door is part way open, you can see the label below the curved portion of horizontal track or above the horizontal tracks. If the door is closed, look behind the vertical track with a flashlight on both sides of the door to find numbers such as S4RSF, M4RSF, S6RST, M6RST, SDP-38 or MDP-38.

Many garage doors have a label on the bottom section that gives the serial number.If you decide to find your door information, we need the following information: the manufacturer and model number and the door dimensions. If you have a 16 X 7 garage door without hurricane bracing, you can purchase replacement springs online.

If you operated your garage door manually (without the opener) before the spring broke, was it easy to open? If the springs are well-matched with the door weight, it should have been easy to open the door. At the same time, the door should have stayed on the ground when it was closed. If this is the case, you can replace your old spring with a new spring with the same dimensions. (I have two springs: Should I replace them both?)

EZ-Set springs are specially gapped in the factory, so they tend to be much more flexible than standard torsion springs.Our specially gapped springs have the same properties so they can work with your EZ-Set system. Most standard torsion springs are not OEM springs because they can come from various manufacturers and function the same as the original spring. Our specially-gapped springs are not manufactured by Clopay or Ideal, but they are suitable replacements. And depending on inventory levels we can often provide longer life gapped springs for your EZ-Set system.
