Our specialists provide around-the-clock door closer services to ensure the safety and security of your property.

How Door Closers Work

Door closers are made to control the opening and closing of a door. Good control prevents injuries and damage. Door closers must withstand the weight of the door, high winds or excessive force. When properly installed and functioning correctly, a door closer will offer some resistance as the door is opened but will still allow the door to glide easily to the end of the cycle. As the end of the opening cycle is reached, a spring in the mechanism transfers the closing force to the closer's arm, gently returning the door to its frame. A correctly working door closer will ensure that the door closes firmly enough to latch without slamming shut.

Door Closer Repair

Changes in temperature, wind gusts and usage can affect the way your door closer functions. When door closers are not maintained properly and repaired when needed, serious injuries and damages to your building can occur. Below are a few indications that door closer repair or service is needed.

Misfit door closers: While smaller, less durable door closers may be sufficient for lighter-weight doors or those that are not frequently used, heavier doors like exterior doors and those that undergo frequent use require heavy-duty door closers. If the door closer doesn't match the door, it increases the risk of injuries to your customers and damages to your door, hardware, or frame.

Improper installation or adjustment: The improper installation or incorrect adjustment of your door closer can result in:

  • Damage to your doorframe
  • The door moving too quickly or slowly
  • Misalignments
  • Failure to latch or lock

Damaged seals and leaking lubricants: When seals are damaged, you might notice exposed clearance gaps, markings on hardware or oil leak. If lubricant levels become too low, the door will open or close more quickly than expected, potentially resulting in property damage or customer injury. If you notice damaged seals or lubricant leaks, it is vital to have your door closer repaired by a professional as soon as possible.
