In the elevator, heavy garage doors will be moved with high power provides by the electric motor. Most of the doors are attached with the counterbalance springs. In rare design, torsion springs were applied to the shaft with torque. This shaft will apply a certain force to the garage door through counterbalance cables that are made up of steel. The door is closed and open with the help of an electric opener that provides a very less amount of force. It will hold the door closed in place of the lock.

The trolley is connected with an arm that purely attaches to the top of the garage door that slides forth and back on the track to close and opens the door.
