Garage Door Springs Color Code

Garage door springs are color coded to aid in proper identification for repair, ordering and warehousing purposes. Garage door springs have been given color codes based on DASMA (Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association) guidelines and specifications. Torsion springs are color coded based on wire gauge sizes. Extension springs are color coded based on the weight they are designed to counterbalance. For extension springs one pair (2 springs total) are identified by a given color code and weight rating.  Color codes are designed as a supplemental identification aid and should never be solely relied upon. Always substantiate color codes with physical spring measurements and door weights provided by your overhead door manufacturer manufacturer.
