Garage Door Components

Sections. Springs. Track. Hinges. Huh? Learn the basic components that make up a Raynor residential garage door system and take the mystery out of how a garage door works.

Garage Door Springs

Raynor garage 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. Torsion springs wind and unwind to provide lifting power, where extension springs get their lifting power by stretching.

Garage Door Sections

Sections are the primary visual part of your garage door. Raynor offers a variety of exterior door designs. Interior construction ranges from pan doors without insulation to insulated steel sandwich doors.

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.

Strong Hardware and Quiet Rollers

Our proprietary Raynor hinges are made of high-quality steel that can easily bear the weight of the door in the upright, closed, position. The EnduraCote Hardware System comes with extended life springs, track, and hardware that are powder coated to provide a clean, finished look and maximum protection against rust. Nylon rollers with steel bearings help to provide superior noise reduction and offer smooth operation.

Weatherseal

To help keep out wind and rain, Raynor garage doors feature a vinyl bottom weatherseal attached to a sturdy aluminum retainer.

Photoelectric Eye

Raynor garage door sensors are mounted three 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 garage door is operating, the door will reverse direction and return to the open position.
