How Door Closers Work

When properly installed and maintained, a manual door closer allows an individual to easily open your door without having to close it physically. The door closer should allow the user to feel a little resistance before gliding open. As soon as the user passes through the threshold, a spring in the door closer triggers the mechanism's arm to return the door gently into its frame.

Door Closer Repair

The specialists at Glass Doctor of Birmingham provide a full range of manual door closer repairs and services, solving common problems.

Incorrect types of door closers: Your door closer must match the door it is installed on. A heavy door requires a strong door closer with tough springs to avoid misalignments and damage from strain. Likewise, a lighter doors needs a lighter door closer, or else it won't close at the right speed, potentially causing damage to the door or injury to the user.

Improperly installed and adjusted door closers: Only a trained specialist should install and adjust your door closer. Our experts use specialized tools to maximize your door closer's lifespan and keep it in good working order. Professional maintenance is essential to prevent:

  • Doorframe damage
  • Abnormal door movement
  • Misalignments

Seal repairs and low oil levels: A broken seal makes the hardware in your door closer vulnerable, often causing lubricant leaks. If you notice an oil leak, it generally indicates a mechanical problem, like a broken O-ring, missing screw or failed seal. Having the professionals at Glass Doctor of Birmingham replace the oil in your door closer allows you to avoid the damage caused by low lubrication levels.

Difficult to lock doorways: A door has difficulty locking poses a major security risk, and in the long term it can also cause damage to the door frame, locking mechanism and door closer. Talk to our team about door component repairs, including locks.
