Quick Tips For Measuring Your Garage Door Radius

Here are some quick tips for determining the track radius of your garage door: 

  • Nearly ALL residential garage doors have a track radius of either 12" or 15"
  • A 12" radius has a sharper track curve and opens lower
  • Anything shorter than 91 inches is a 12" track radius
  • Anything between 91 & 93 inches is a 15" track radius

The track radius is extremely important in determining what type of springs you need for your door, especially when you need to find garage door springs by weight.
