Tapered Springs

Unlike traditional springs, tapered springs or barrel springs are conical or tapered in shape. Due to their unique shape, they are considered more stable than similar springs like extension springs.

Tapered springs are used most often in the following applications: stove handles, grills, smokers, BBQ pits, furnaces, boilers, and incinerators. MW supplies more “cool to the touch” tapered spring handles for stove and smoker manufacturers than any other spring company. We have more than 125 different tapered spring variations, available in an assortment of finishes.

CAD files for stock and standard tapered springs are available for download in MW OnDemand.
