How to Measure for Your New Holmes Garage Door
- Measure existing door width and height in feet and inches. This
determines the size of door needed. The rough opening should be the same
size as the door.
Width: ________________ Height: _________________
- Measure for sideroom: 3-3/4" is required on each side for installation of the vertical track for standard extension or torsion springs, or EZ-SET® Torsion Spring. 5-1/2" is
required for EZ-SET Extension Spring.
Left Sideroom: _____________________________________
Right Sideroom: _____________________________________
- Measure area labeled "headroom"distance between the top of the door opening ("jamb header") and the ceiling (or floor joist). 10" is required for standard installation of extension springs and EZ-SET Extension Spring, 12" on standard torsion springs and EZ-SET Torsion Spring. 14" of headroom required for Lodgewood™ Collection doors. If you have restricted headroom, special hardware is available. Low headroom hardware is available to reduce requirement to as low as 4-1/2" (minimum with standard extension spring or EZ-SET Extension Spring). EZ-SET Torsion Spring low headroom requirement is 9-1/2". Note: If door height extends above the opening, the headroom measurement should be adjusted accordingly.
