Garage Door Terminology

Hang Down

This refers to the length of the door that is needed to cover the opening when the door is closed.

Hanging Iron

The hanging iron is the same as an angle iron. See angle iron.

Hardware Options

There are many hardware options available to you. These include 11-gauge hinges, 12 gauge continuous angle, bridge strut, precision rollers, safety bottom brackets, and more. Talk with one of our technicians to determine what hardware you need for your garage door.

Hardware Systems

There are several hardware systems you need for your garage door to function. These include tracks, hinges, rollers, springs, struts, and more.

Headplate

This is used to support the lifting drum and is located on the edge of the door.

Headroom

This is the length of space you need between the tracks and the ceiling for the door to operate.

Heliarc Weld

Welding using helium or argon that creates an inert gas-shielded arc.

High Arc

This is another word for trajectory. See trajectory.

High Lift

This is the length of space that is measured from the header to the underside of the horizontal track for high lift doors.

High Lift Drum

This drum is designed to balance a high lift door. It is contoured to aid in the balancing.

High Lift Track

When you have a vertical lift door, you need the right track and hardware to door raise above the top of the door opening before it gets into the horizontal position.

High Moment Arm

The high moment arm refers to the radius around the cable drum including the cable.

Hinge

A hinge is attached to two sections of the garage door to allow them to move when the door is raised or lowered.

Hinge Support Plate

Hinges need a support plate to attach to. The support plate is screwed into the panel and then the hinge is put on top of that.

Hinge Tube

The hinge tube is a cylindrical part that connects two leafs together.

Hinges

Hinges are used to join panels together so that they move when the door is raised or lowered.

Hoist Electric Operator

This is used in case of power failure. It works like the jackshaft-type opener, but has an emergency chain that can raise the door when the power goes out.

Horizontal Rise

The horizontal rise causes the door to start down the track and puts tension on the garage door cable.

Horizontal:

* Track- The horizontal track is the part of the track assembly that is horizontal.
* Angle- The track has an “L” shaped angle fixed to it called the horizontal Track angle.
* Assembly- When the door is in a horizontal position, it relies on the horizontal track assembly to keep it in place.
* Track Radius- The horizontal radius can also be referred to as the track radius.

Hot Off the Floor

When your garage door lifts off the floor without you doing anything, it can be referred to as “hot off the floor”.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
