How Door Closers Work

A well-functioning door closer ensures the door to your business operates properly in accordance with local building codes fire ordinances and ADA accessibility requirements. By storing the energy used to open the door in a torsion or compression spring, a manual door closer releases the energy to close the door. Although a properly installed door closer provides some resistance as the individual opens the door, the resistance gives way to a gliding door as it opens. When the person stops providing resistance, an internal spring forces the device's arm to close the door gently into the doorframe.
