Garage Door Cable Drum Repair & Replacement

United Garage Doors provides garage door cable drum replacement and repair services for residential homeowners in the Greater Las Vegas, NV area. Garage door cable drums are categorized in 3 types that correlate with the overhead-type of garage door. These types include: Vertical Lift, High Lift, and Standard-Lift. Each type of cable drum is engineered to assist the garage door to be well balanced as it opens and closes in conjunction with the torsion springs.

Standard-Lift Cable Drums

Standard-lift cable drums are the part that is most flat. The last 3/4 of a turn or so on the grooves of the cable drum is somewhat elevated just toward the outside of the door. This component assists the balance of the garage door as it starts to open. Standard-lift cable drums are available in three diameters: 4″, 5-1/4″ and 8″. The drum’s cable capacity corresponds with the drum cable and is indicated with associative numbers. The number embossed in the drum will be in either inches or feet, depending on the drum manufacturer. For example, an 8″ diameter cable drum, which has a cable capacity of 32-feet, can be ordered for either a 1″ or 1-1/4″ shaft.

Vertical-Lift Cable Drums

Vertical-lift cable drums are in place farther from the shaft when the garage door is closed. The cable wraps up on the drum and comes closer to the shaft as the door opens. Vertical-lift cable drums are available in 3 outer diameter sizes which are 8-1/2″, 11″ and 13-1/2″. The drum’s cable capacity corresponds to each cable drum which is associated in conjunction with one another by a specific number. The number assigned in the drum will be in either inches or feet, depending on the drum manufacturer. The 13-1/2″ diameter cable drum, which has a cable capacity of 28-feet, can be replaced with either a 1″ or 1-1/4″ shaft, for example.

High-Lift Cable Drums

Equipped with both a flat portion like the standard-lift drums and a raised portion like the vertical-lift drums, the high-lift cable drums runs on the raised portion as the garage door opens vertically, then shifts over to the flat portion when the door operates on the horizontal track. Unlike the standard and vertical lift cable drums, the high-lift cable drums are available in five diameters for the flat-portion: 4″, 5-1/2″, 5-3/4″, 6-3/8″, and 8″. But like the vertical and standard lift cable drums, the drum’s cable capacity corresponds to each cable drum which is associated in conjunction with one another by a specific number. The dedicated number will be in either inches or feet, depending on the manufacturer. The 6-3/8″ diameter cable drum, which has a cable capacity of 13′ 8″, and an 8″ diameter cable drum, which has a cable capacity of 10′, is available for either a 1″ or 1-1/4″ shaft.
