Door Closer Repair Service

Door closers are an aspect of your business that you probably don’t give much thought to until there’s a problem. A properly functioning door will open smoothly, without too much or too little resistance. But when the mechanism or lock doesn’t work properly, it can cause a safety hazard for your customers and employees and make your business more vulnerable to break-ins. A problematic door also leaves your customers with a negative impression of your business.

Trust Glass Doctor® of Battle Creek, MI, with your manual door closer repair and maintenance, and we’ll make sure your doors operate as they should, providing protection as well as safe entry and exit. Door closers may be somewhat simple in design, but caring for them can be complex. Our specialists have the tools, training, and expertise to keep your doors working smoothly.

How Door Closers Work

Door closers are more complex than they may first appear to be. They allow us to open doors easily, with just the right amount of resistance. The goal is a door that opens smoothly without too much resistance and without suddenly flying open. After the person opening the doorstops pushing, the door closer mechanism’s spring causes the door to close gently and quietly return to its frame.

Door Closer Repair

Incorrect Types of Door Closers

The strength of the closer should match the weight and size of the door. If a door’s closer and springs aren’t strong enough, the door or closer could become damaged. Our specialists have the training and expertise to make sure that you have the correct closers for your doors.

Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

The first step in ensuring that your door closers work properly is making sure that they’re properly installed. We have the tools and training necessary to install door closers and keep them well maintained and in optimal working condition. This helps make sure that the door doesn’t become misaligned, have trouble opening or closing properly, or cause damage to your door’s frame.

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

Door seals can break, leading to gaps and causing oil leaks. Our specialists identify and fix the problem, whether it’s caused by hardware issues or a fail in the seal itself. We’ll make sure your doors have the oil they need to function properly. Without adequate lubrication, a door may fly open or slam shut, possibly hurting the person using the door, the doorframe, glass, or other parts.

Door is Hard to Lock

A door that’s hard to lock may cause problems with security, since users may be unable to lock it or simply stop trying if it’s too difficult. It can also cause other parts of the door to developing problems.
