Garage Door Components

Springs
Raynor doors are balanced by torsion (shown) or extension springs. Extension springs are mounted just above the horizontal track, perpendicular to the closed garage door. Torsion springs are mounted above the closed door, parallel and horizontal to the top section of the door as shown here. Torsion springs wind and unwind to provide lifting power, where extension springs get their lifting power by stretching.   Torsion Springs
Door Sections
Sections are the primary visual part of your door. Raynor offers a variety of exterior door designs, including up to 13 styles for Raynor Innovations Series doors. Interior construction ranges from pan doors without insulation to insulated steel sandwich doors.   Door Sections
Custom-Fit Track
Heavy gauge steel is used to ensure stability and long life. All Raynor track is made specifically for every door ordered and can be adjusted for a precise fit.   Custom-Fit Track
Strong Hinges
Hinges are made of high-quality steel and bear the weight of the door in the upright (closed) position. On Raynor Premium-level garage doors and all Raynor Innovations Series doors, hinges are powdercoated for maximum protection against moisture and rust.   Hinges
Quiet Rollers
Raynor uses steel wheel ball-bearing rollers for smoother, quieter operation. Raynor Premium-level garage doors offer nylon rollers with steel ball bearings for superior noise reduction-a plus when living space is used above or in close proximity to the garage.   Quiet Rollers
Weatherseal
To help keep out wind and rain, Raynor garage doors feature a vinyl bottom weatherseal attached to a sturdy aluminum retainer.    Vinyl bottom weatherseal
Photoelectric Eye
These sensors are mounted five to six inches off the floor on either side of the door. Working in conjunction with the garage door opener, photo eyes send an invisible beam across the door opening. If the beam is broken while the door is operating, the door will reverse direction and return to the open position.   Photoelectric Eye
