How Door Closers Work
Manual hydraulic door closers easily and automatically close a door at an adjustable speed, which is controlled by an internal spring that applies force to the arm. The heavier the door, the stronger the door closer should be. An inadequate closer poses a serious safety risk, and will damage the closer or door itself.
A properly installed door closer gives the door a slight resistance as someone opens it. After that moment of resistance, the door should glide open smoothly. Once the person is through the door and releases it, the internal spring forces the arm to gently swing back until the door returns to its closed position.
Door Closer Issues
Everyone uses manual door closers on a daily basis, barely giving them a second thought. But when something goes wrong with one, it becomes obvious and potentially dangerous.
Properly Installed & Adjusted Door Closers
The door closer repair specialists at Glass Doctor of Elizabeth, NJ know how to install, maintain and repair all types of manual door closers. They’re trained in using the right tools to maximize the closer’s lifespan and keep it in perfect working order. A properly installed and maintained door closer is vital for preventing doorframe damage, abnormal door movements and misalignments.
Seal Repairs/Low Oil Levels
A broken seal may cause lubricant leaks and leave the door closer hardware vulnerable to damage. If you spot an oil leak, it often means the closer is missing a screw, has failed seals or broken O-rings. A lack of lubrication will cause a door to open or close too quickly, posing a serious risk of injury.
