The deflection shall be limited to a maximum of .03 inch per foot of door width. The springs are to consist of helical torsion types designed to meet a 25 percent load factor. The safety factor allows for safe operation, ease of use, and a longer spring life. The springs are to be grease packed and anchored, using a cast iron anchor with a cold rolled steel inner shaft. The spring tension shall be fully adjustable from outside of the end bracket plate.
