How Door Closer Work
You door closer probably doesn't get much attention until it starts malfunctioning, then it becomes an issue requiring immediate attention. When it is working properly, it will provide a slight amount of resistance as a visitor applies pressure to open it. The resistance prevents the door from flying open too quickly. That same resistance kicks in when there is no longer any pressure being applied; the door will gently glide back to the frame. The door closer acts as a vital mechanical component that prevents physical injuries, avoids damage to the door and provides a welcoming entrance.
Door Closer Repair
As with any mechanical device, things can go wrong. Because commercial doors tend to be heavier, it is important to make sure that the door is outfitted with a spring that is strong enough to handle the additional weight. Also, proper installation is the key to long-lasting and reliable performance. Fortunately, the specialists at Glass Doctor of Grand Blanc, MI, have the skills and experience to install door closers correctly and complete any necessary repairs. From adjusting springs to refilling oil levels, we can prolong the life of your door while also preventing avoidable damage to the doorframe.
Over time, doors can become misaligned, a small screw can fall out, or oil leaks can develop because of broken seals. If you notice that your door closer has an excess of oil on the outside, it is time to call the experts. Incorrect oil levels can cause the door to close too quickly, creating unsafe conditions. While you might be tempted to cut corners and tackle repairs yourself, this approach is risky and can void the warranty on your door, which means more money in the long run.
