How to Measure Garage Door Headroom
HEADROOM is one of the most critical measurements necessary to insure that the garage door is ordered correctly.
HEADROOM requirements vary depending on the building construction and the type of springs sold with the door.
STANDARD HEADROOM necessary when using 12” radius track is 11 inches utilizing extention or torsion springs.
To determine proper Headroom, measure from the floor to the finished ceiling or first obstruction, as the door would travel into the garage and subtract the door height.
