Door Closer Repair Service

The moment a customer walks through the door of your business, an impression of it is unconsciously formed. Having a front door that functions properly is critical to making a positive first impression. Glass Doctor® of Calgary offers manual door closer repair and maintenance services to keep your commercial doors in top-condition.

How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer enables a person to open a door with ease without having to close it behind them. When a door closer is installed correctly, a user feels resistance, which indicates the weight of the door. After the user has experienced initial resistance, the door moves open smoothly. Once the user quits applying resistance, the door closer spring makes the mechanism's arm close softly until the door is in its original position in the frame.

Improper types of door closer: The heavier the door, the stronger the door closer and door closer spring required. Installing the wrong kind of closer poses safety risks and increases the chance of misalignment and damage to the door and door closer.

Incorrectly installed and adjusted closers: Glass Doctor of Calgary specialists use the proper tools to install and maintain door closers, extending their lifespan and keeping them in good working order. Hiring an experienced professional for your door closer installation, repair and maintenance services is key for preventing misalignment, door frame damage and unusual or unexpected door movements.

Seal repairs and low oil levels: Broken seals leave hardware susceptible to damage, expose clearance gaps and may lead to lubricant leaks. Typically an oil leak points to a mechanical issue with a door closer, such as failed seals, a missing screw or broken O-rings. If you suspect low oil level, hire a professional to replace the oil in a timely fashion. A lack of lubrication may cause a door to open or close too fast, potentially damaging the door or injuring the user.

Difficult to lock doors: A door that is difficult or impossible to lock leaves your business vulnerable to theft and vandalism. It also compromises the well being of the door closer, door frame and locking mechanism.
