What Are Tension Springs? Tension springs or extension springs are one of the most commonly known springs in the spring manufacturing industry and are tightly wound coils that are designed to operate with tension force. Similar to compression springs, they are helical coiled springs but are designed to bring components together or for attachment purposes using loops and hooks, rather than keep them apart. How Do Tension Springs Work? Tension springs are used to attach two components and bring them together when they try to detach. A high-tension spring works by absorbing energy and storing it and when tension is applied, its energy creates a resistance to counter the pulling force. The initial tension applied dictates how close these coils are and by controlling this initial tension, it is possible to customise the spring to cater to specific load requirements. The coiled design of a spring is what provides the strength and elasticity. A tension spring is tightly wound and when in a rest state, it remains coiled. We include interfaces such as eyes, hooks or loops at both ends to facilitate attachment to other components.
