Proper Door Closer Operation
manual door closer should make it simple for customers to enter and then close the door smoothly behind them. The door should convey its weight with a bit of pushback as the person enters your shop. When the customer releases the door, its spring should go into action internally, to gently and quietly bring the door closed. This way your customer enters comfortably, without the distraction of a door that sticks, creaks or slams shut.
Common Problems Requiring Door Closer Repair
Wrong Type of Closer
If your door is relatively heavy or large, it should have a door closer equipped with a heavy-duty spring mechanism. If your door closer is too weak (or too strong) for the door, it creates a safety issue for the public and employees of your business. The wrong manual door closer may also damage your door or the doorframe. Overall, it makes your business less welcoming for your potential customers.
Poor Installation or Incorrect Adjustment
At Glass Doctor of Harrisburg, we take care to precisely adjust your door closer. We make certain the door opens predictably and glides smoothly into its original position to:
- Prevent damage to door and frame
- Avoid unexpected, surprising door movement, minimizing risk of injuries
- Prevent door and frame misalignment, reducing future repairs
- Extend the life of your door and door closer, delaying replacement costs
- Preserve your warrantee, which may require professional door closer repair services
Seal Leakage and Low Oil Levels
Failed seals create door clearance problems, allowing lubricant to leak out and damage components. Mechanical issues may include a broken seal, damaged O-ring or missing screw. Your Glass Doctor of Harrisburg specialist regularly checks and replaces the oil to ensure that doors operate properly. This makes doors safe to use and keeps customers satisfied.
Door Locking Problems
When a door is hard to lock, it is likely to be left open due to error or frustration. This is not only inconvenient, it creates security risks for your inventory and your employees. Lock problems may damage the door and frame as well. We ensure your door locks quickly and securely.
