How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers allow individuals to easily enter your business. A properly installed closer means a user never needs to physically close the door after entry. When a customer presses your doors open, a small amount of resistance is built-in to the mechanism.This resistance gives users an idea of the mass and heaviness of the door. It also ensures light gusts of wind won't open the door. Once the initial resistance subsides, the door should smoothly glide open. After the user stops applying resistance, a spring should force the arm to gently return the door to the frame.

Door Closer Repair

Often doors that do not have regular maintenance cease operating normally. There is also a chance the door closer was never properly installed in the first place, which makes perfect operation unlikely. Glass Doctor of the Shenandoah Valley experts will resolve any issue relating to your commercial door closer. Our team members are properly trained to ensure a professional solution.

Wrong type of door closers: Heavier doors need door closers with stronger springs. Using an improperly sized door closer leads to misalignments, increased safety risks, as well as damage to the door or door closer.

It's also vital an experienced door closer expert adjusts the springs, which is imperative to prevent:

  • Unexpected or abnormal movements of the door
  • Doorframe damage
