Each type of cable drum is designed to accommodate/balance the door based on the maximum door height, overall weight of the door and the cable thickness and length.
A properly balanced garage door should feel like it weighs only 5-10 pounds and can be easily opened with one hand. In a torsion spring system, the spring is mounted on a spring bar on the header above the garage door opening. The spring bar is held in place by a center bracket and bearing and an end bearing plate on each end of the garage door. There could be two or more center brackets and bearings if three are more springs are needed. The garage door drums are mounted on each end of the spring bar to the inside of the end bearing plate. The cables then wind around the drums and are attached to the bottom bracket on the bottom garage door section. While the spring provides the counterbalance/strength to open the garage door, the drums and cables do the actual lifting.
