Door Closer Repair Service
Great customer service begins the moment an individual walks through the door. Make sure that your business' first impression begins with a door that works properly. Glass Doctor® provides manual door closer repair and maintenance services ensuring the safety of commercial doors and those who walk through them.
How Door Closers Work
Manual door closers allow individuals to easily open doors without having to close them physically. A properly installed door closer causes a user to feel some resistance as he or she opens the door, giving them a sense of how heavy the door is. After the initial resistance, the door smoothly glides open. When a user stops applying resistance, a spring in the door closer forces the mechanism’s arm to close gently until the door returns to the frame.
Door Closer Repair
Incorrect Types of Door Closers
Heavy doors require strong door closers with strong springs. If a door has the wrong type of closer installed, it poses safety risks, lead to misalignments and damage to the closer or door.
Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers
The specialists at Glass Doctor use the right tools to install and maintain door closers to maximize their lifespan and ensure that they remain in good working condition. It’s beneficial that an experienced specialist install and maintain a door closer and adjust its spring, as this is vital to preventing:
- Doorframe damage
- Abnormal or unexpected movements of the door
Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Broken seals expose clearance gaps, leave hardware vulnerable and may cause lubricant leaks. Oil leaks generally indicate a mechanical problem with a door closer, such as a missing screw, failed seals or broken O-rings. It’s important to have a professional replace the oil in a door closer; a lack of lubrication causes doors to open or close too quickly, potentially causing injury to a user or the door itself.
Door is Difficult to Lock
A door that’s difficult to lock poses a security risk. It also affects the well-being of the doorframe, locking mechanism and the door closer.
