How to Hand a Door Spring

We get asked a lot to see how you hand a door spring for Roller Shutters and Sectional Overhead Doors, we understand there is a lot of confusion in the industry to do with this, so here’s our a simple guide below.

Left hand wound spring

1. Place the spring to 12 o’clock
2. Find the cut of the wire
3. If the wire goes to the left hand side, it is a left hand wound spring.

Right hand wound spring

  1. Place the spring to 12 o’clock
  2. Find the cut of the wire
  3. If the wire goes to the right hand side, it is a right hand wound spring.
