How to Determine Correct Ramp Spring for Installing a Ramp on a Storage Shed


Hello I am building a ramp door for my shed so I can use it to store my Motorcycle. How do I determine the correct springs, drums and cable length?


Expert Reply:

Choosing a ramp spring for your shed door requires you to know the weight and size of the ramp to ensure the cable is long enough and that the system has the required lifting capacity. A system like the 81-inch dual-spring # ERS120D81 has a 120-lb capacity. All ramp springs can be seen on the included link.

The installation instructions for this product are recommended for individuals who have experience winding torsion springs. If you have not worked with a torsion spring system before, we recommend contacting a local garage door company to install this system.
