First impressions are formed the moment someone walks through your door. Ensure a great experience by making sure that your commercial doors work properly. Glass Doctor® of Winston-Salem provides repair and maintenance services for manual door closers. We offer regular maintenance and emergency door closer care.

How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers let your doors open easily without the need to physically close them. When a door closer is installed correctly, the opener will feel some resistance when the door is opened. The door will then glide open smoothly. When resistance stops, a spring inside of the door closer forces its arm to close gently as the door returns to its frame.

Door Closer Repair

Our team is trained to provide quality door closer care. We endeavor to deliver fast service that restores your entryway before damage disrupts your business. Consult with our team about common door closer problems to determine the best solution.

Incorrect door closers: Heavier doors require hefty door closers with strong springs. When a door has the wrong closer installed, it may be a safety hazard. It can also lead to misalignment or damage to the door or the closer. We will check the door closer to determine the appropriate weight and fit.

Improperly installed or adjusted door closers: The team at Glass Doctor of Winston-Salem will use the correct tools to install and maintain your door closers. This will maximize their lifespan and ensure that they remain in good working order. Relying on a professional to install and maintain your door closer will prevent:

  • Damage to the door frame
  • Jerky or unexpected door movement
  • Misalignment

Seal repairs and low oil levels: A broken seal exposes clearance gaps, leaves door hardware vulnerable to damage and may lead to lubricant leaks. Oil leaks usually indicate that there is a mechanical problem with the closer. This could be a missing screw, broken O-rings or a failed seal. It's vital to seek professional help for the replacement of door closer oil. Lack of lubrication can cause your door to open too quickly, posing a risk to users and the door itself.

Difficult to lock doors: Besides being a security risk, a door that is difficult to lock also affects the well-being of the doorframe, door closer and locking mechanisms. Doors that don't lock correctly leaves building vulnerable to theft and damage.
