How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers make it possible for a person to use a door without having to close it behind them. When a door closer is installed, users will feel some impedance as he opens the door. The amount of resistance will vary, depending on the weight of the door. Once the door has offered initial impedance, it glides open without any hiccups. After the user stops applying resistance, the door's closer spring forces the tool's arm to close the door gently until it's back in place in its frame.

Improper Kinds of Door Closers

The heavier the door, the stronger the springs it requires. When a door is installed with the wrong type of closer, the risk of misalignment and damage to the closer and the door increases, which means that there is a greater chance of a user getting injured.

Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

Our specialists have the proper tools for door closer repair, installation and maintenance to extend their lifespan and ensure that they remain in top working order. Hiring an experienced door closer specialist to install and maintain your door closers and adjust their springs is key to preventing:

  • Misalignment
  • Doorframe damage
  • Unusual or unexpected door movements

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

When a seal is broken, clearance gaps are left exposed, making hardware more likely to get damaged and increasing the risk of lubricant leaks. Typically an oil leak points to a mechanical problem with a door closer such as broken O-rings, a missing screw or failed seals. In the event of a low oil level, it's critical to hire a professional to replace the oil. Leaving a door low on oil may cause it to open or close too quickly, which may injure the user or the door itself.

Difficult to Lock Doors

The most important reason to repair a door that doesn't lock properly is the security risk it poses. An ill-fitting lock compromises the door closer, locking mechanism and the general well-being of the doorframe.
