Garador RM / DR-Type (Pre 2002)

Garador RM and later DR (Double Retractable) geared fully retractable garage doors unlike the CM and DC garage doors do not form a canopy while in the open position. They are easily identified by the overhead tracks, similar in length as the height of the garage door, which are attached to the garage door frame and supported by straps from the ceiling.

The springs are located at the sides of the garage door anchored at the base of the garage door frame jamb to a spring anchor bracket and at the other end to a link arm which lifts and supports the garage door throughout its travel to the open position.

Pre 1998 springs are identified by their tag number (three digits) which if still in existence, should be wired to one end of the spring. On post 1998 springs the identification number is punched into the eye at on end of the spring.

In the highly likely event of the tag no longer being in existence the following information should prove useful in identifying the correct springs for the garage door.
