Garador – Springs / Box Units

Garador Springs & Box Units

Mk3C / C-Type garage doors can be identified by the Garador spring box unit mounted above the door which contains two Garador springs.

Garador C-Type 1999 to 2002 geared canopy garage doors are easily identified by the the jamb mounted encased spring at each side of the door, take care not to confuse with Mk4/F-Type garage doors.

Mk4 / F-Type door springs are easily identified by the fact that they are only fitted to steel framed doors, with one spring located within each frame leg.

Garador CM and later DC (Double Canopy) are easily identified by the tracks which are shorter than on retractable garage doors and are self supporting, the Garador springs are located behind each door jamb.

Mk3R doors made until 1984 can be identified by their lifting arms which are not only cranked but are made from ‘C’ section, as opposed to box section or solid steel, Garador springs are located behind each door jamb.

For additional spring details please see below the product and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Which spring?

Garador Mk3R retractable doors were discontinued in favour of a new broader range of retractable doors on updated Garador RM gear some years ago.

Mk3R garage doors can be identified by their lifting arms which are not only cranked but are made from ‘C’ section, as opposed to box section or solid steel. The Garador springs are identified by their tag number which if still in existence, should be wired to one end of the spring.

  • Garador springs with Tag Number 131 can be replaced with GAS3710 (S108-907) RM/DR springs – see other section
  • Garador springs with Tag Number 132 can be replaced with GAS3780 (S108-927) RM/DR springs – see other section
  • Garador springs with Tag Number 134 can be replaced with GAS3700 (S108-903) RM/DR springs – see other section
  • Garador springs with Tag Number 141 can be replaced with GAS3760 (S108-923) RM/DR springs – see other section

To make the springs fit you will need to rotate the bottom spring bracket by 180 degrees and re-fix it due to the substitute springs being slightly longer than the original ones.

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

Tag Number 131 springs were fitted to – 7′ 10 1/2″ x 6′ 6 3/4″ Georgian style doors

Tag Number 132 springs were fitted to – 7′ 0″ x 6′ 6″ Georgian style doors

Tag Number 134 springs were fitted to – 7’0″ x 7′ 0″ Georgian style doors

Tag Number 141 springs were fitted to – 7′ 0″ x 6′ 6″ and 7′ 0″ x 7′ 0″ horizontally ribbed doors

All four compatible springs can be found in the Garador RM / DR Springs section.

Garador R and FR, (Retractable and Steel Framed Retractable), geared fully retractable doors are easily identified by the full size overhead tracks and Garador springs located behind each door jamb.

Garador RM and later DR (Double Retractable) geared fully retractable doors are, like the R and FR doors, easily identified by the full size overhead tracks and Garador springs located behind each door jamb.

More detailed information on each gear type can be found within each section.
