Our specialists are trained to assess your storefront needs and set up a plan that works for you. From installation to maintenance, make sure you receive your guests in style, while keeping them and your business safe and secure.

How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers provide a mechanical assist for easy to operate doors, even if they are heavy. Pulling the handle provides guests a sense of the weight, and then the mechanism takes over. Once your guests have entered, and resistance stops, the arm of the closer gently swings the door back into the jamb. This effortless action eliminates damage and injury from banging doors.

Door Closer Care Starts at Installation

It is critical for the longevity and safety of your manual door closers that you have them installed by trained professionals. The Glass Doctor of Greers Ferry, AR team is specially trained in proper selection, installation and adjustment. Professional installation and repair will assure that your warranty stays intact, and make opening your doors a breeze. We’ll walk you through:

  • Selecting a mechanism that is strong enough for the weight of your door
  • Installing the mechanisms you need
  • Ensuring correct spring tension and alignment

We pay attention to the details so you don’t have to worry about the dangers of improperly installed mechanisms, such as frame damage, abnormal movement, and even injury to your guests.

Door Closer Care Includes Repair

Over time, mechanical devices have parts that wear out. Proper installation extends the life of your parts, but it won't eliminate the need for maintenance or repair. Glass Doctor of Greers Ferry, AR offers many door closer care maintenance options for smooth functioning closers. Some things you’ll want to keep an eye out for between regular maintenance visits, that indicate possible problems:

  • Difficulty locking doors
  • Abnormal movement
  • Discoloration

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

Seals and O-rings are designed to wear so your metal parts don’t. As the seals and rings break down, they can expose your hardware or cause fluid leaks. Regular motion can loosen screws, which also leads to oil leaks. If you notice any of the danger signs, be sure to contact our experts as soon as possible to replace the oil and check your mechanism to avoid injury or damage.

Spring Adjustment

Over time, even heavy duty springs will require adjustment to keep your door aligned properly. Misalignment leads to difficulty locking up, putting your security at risk. Plus, the pressure on your doorframe from misaligned hardware damages your door, frame and locks, requiring additional repairs. If you notice difficulty shutting or locking your doors, give us a call to get you back on track.
