About Commercial Door Closers
Commercial door closers are mechanical devices that control the opening and closing of doors.
Door closers are used widely. From hospitals to schools, small businesses, restaurants, and everything in between, most businesses can benefit from the installation of commercial closers. They can be installed on a variety of new and existing doors. A properly installed closer works like this:
- It causes a user to feel some resistance as they begin to open the door, giving them a sense of how heavy the door is.
- After the initial resistance, the door smoothly glides open.
- When a user lets go of the door, a spring in the closer forces the mechanism’s arm to close gently until the door returns to the frame.
Should you choose to install a commercial door closer at your business, we will send a service professional to your business to:
- Identify the right door closer for your door.
- Prepare the door and doorframe for installation.
- Install necessary hardware to both the doorframe and door.
- Connect both pieces of the commercial door closer.
Common Door Closer Repair Problems
The first step of door closer repair service is evaluating your needs. Closer issues can be categorized in several different ways according to the cause of the problem.
The Door Slams into the Frame
One of the most common problems is a door that slams into the door frame, creating an unexpected noise. The sheer volume of the sound is jarring to consumers and immediately makes them feel tense. The problem is usually the result of one of two common issues.
First, the tension arm of the door closer may have become loose and needs to be readjusted. Second, the closer may be too weak to handle the door's weight, even when the closer is as tight as possible.
The Door Does Not Close
Slow-closing doors are problematic because they allow outside debris and sound to enter your business, which could violate your city's building codes. The mechanism cannot move as designed when the tension is too strong, or a door is too light for the closer. Our team can fully analyze your closer to find the correct fit.
Poor Frame Fit
Ignore door closer repair long enough, and you will encounter frame damage from the violence of the door, which ultimately causes the frame to warp. The door cannot close properly and may become jammed when you try to lock it. This problem leads to safety and security issues, leaving locks and entrances vulnerable to tampering. Our team investigates the door and the frame, and we can assist with framing issues if your door cannot close.
Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Broken seals result in exposed clearance gaps, lubricant leaks, and vulnerable hardware. Most oil leaks are the result of failed seals, missing screws, broken O-rings, or other mechanical problems. No matter the cause, it's vital to have an expert perform the door closer repair to replace the missing oil. Improperly lubricated closers will commonly open and close too quickly, which causes damage to the door and may even injure a customer.
