Door Closer Repair Service
A poorly designed or maintained door closer will either cause your doors to slam shut every time they're opened, or to lag behind customers, letting outside air and debris into your building. Glass Doctor® of Evansville specialists will ensure your door closers work properly every time.
Door Closer Operation
Door closers are simple in their design. A person opens the door, and feels a bit of resistance as the door swings open. The resistance is caused by the weight of the door and a spring inside the door closer mechanism. Once the person opening the door lets go, the spring gently pulls the door back into the closed position.
Concerns About Door Closer Repair
A common complaint during door closer repair is that the door shuts too violently or it closes to slowly. A violent impact during closing is the result of a door too light for the door closing mechanism. The spring inside pulls the light door with so much momentum as it closes, that the door to slams into the frame. When the door is too heavy for the spring, it will swing shut very slowly because the door closer cannot compensate for the weight of the door.
If you wait too long for your door closer repair, the door may cause significant damage to the frame and lock plate for the door. This damage will prevent the door from locking, and may leave your door open when it fails to seal in the frame.
The rubber seals around the door will dry out and crack over time, and it's a good idea to address them during a door closer repair. The Glass Doctor of Evansville team will inspect and replace door seals, check lubrication levels in the door closer, and replace any missing fluids as part of our regular maintenance package.
