How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer enables people to open doors with ease, eliminating the requirement to close doors physically. When a door closer is working properly, a user feels an appropriate level of resistance for the weight of the door while he or she opens the door. Following the initial resistance, the door moves open smoothly. Once the user releases the door, a door closer gently returns the door to its shut position.

Improper Kinds of Door Closers

Installing the appropriate door closer is largely dependent upon the weight of the door. A heavier door requires a more substantial door closer. When a door is installed with the wrong kind of closer, it puts users at risk. An improper closer also increases the potential for misalignment and harm to the door and door closer.

Incorrectly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

Glass Doctor of Fargo door closer repair specialists possess the proper tools for installing and servicing door closers the right way, saving you time and money. Using specialized tools extends the lifespan of the closers, ensuring they remain in solid working order year after year. Hiring a door closer specialist for your Fargo business is critical. Our specialists will prevent misalignments, which can cause jarring door movements and damage to the door frame.

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

A broken seal reveals clearance gaps, leaving hardware susceptible to damage and increasing the potential for lubricant leaks. Typically, an oil leak points to a mechanical issue with a door closer, such as broken O-rings, failed seals or a missing screw. When you suspect a low oil level, contact Glass Doctor of Fargo in a timely fashion. Leaving a door closer lacking lubrication may result in the door opening or closing too quickly, possibly harming the door or injuring the user.

Door is Difficult to Lock

Leaving a door open after hours is a risk you can't afford to take. Having a door with a difficult or broken lock compromises the security of your business. It also hinders the well-being of the door closer, locking mechanism and door frame.
