Wayne Dalton Torquemaster Spring Conversion

Wayne Dalton Torquemaster System

The Wayne Dalton Torquemaster system was developed to improve on the traditional torsion spring system. The spring bar/torsion tube remains  The spring bar/torsion tube remains mounted on the header above the garage door like any standard system. However, the TorqueMaster system hides the springs within the spring bar/torsion tube. The weight of the garage door will determine the number of springs needed.

The Torquemaster system also utilizes small plastic drums mounted on each end of the spring bar/torsion tube. Each cable wraps around the plastic drums and connects to the bottom door bracket. With the Torquemaster design, the springs provide the capability to counterbalance the weight of the door leaving the cables and drums to lift and lower the door.

Torquemaster Pro's & Cons

Garage Torsion springs are subject to natures elements in most garages, our Michigan winters, and moisture from humidity have an impact on the life span of the spring. The Torquemaster system has no exposed springs coils or drums, just one single galvanized tube that creates a finished display and protects from moisture.
The drawback of an enclosed system is unless you hear the spring snap “loud bang” it’s hard to tell if the spring is good or bad. A broken spring will cause the door opener to lift the full weight of the door. This will shorten the life of your door opener if nor replaced.
