Commercial Door Closer Service

The customer's experience begins the moment they enter your building. The entryway plays a role in their initial assessment of your business because customers are prone to notice your front door's quality. Make a good first impression with an easy to operate and beautiful door. Glass Doctor® of Molalla, OR, provides door closer maintenance services to ensure your door opens and closes smoothly.

How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer helps users open the door and shuts the door behind the user. When a door closer is properly installed, users feel some resistance as the door is opened. The resistance gives the user an idea of its weight. After that initial resistance, the door glides open smoothly. When the door is released, a spring in the door closer causes the mechanism's arm to gently guide the door back to its frame.

Common Door Closer Problems

Correcting major and minor door closer issues is a Glass Doctor of Molalla, OR specialty. We identify common issues, which can lead to door closer repair.

Incorrect door closers: A heavy door requires a sturdy door closer with strong springs. If your door closer isn't sturdy enough for your door, there can be safety risks to the users. Over time, you may also see misalignments and damage to the door or its closer.

Improper care: Our trained service professionals use the correct tools to perform door closer maintenance and installation. This keeps your door closer in proper condition and can help it last a long time. Always have a properly trained professional perform door closer care and spring adjustment to prevent misalignments, damage to the door frame, or abnormal motion of the door.

Low oil levels and broken seals: If your door closer has a broken seal, this leaves hardware open, exposes clearance gaps, and may cause oil leaks over time. Oil leaks usually indicate a mechanical problem, such as a failed seal, a missing screw, or a broken O-ring. You should always have a trained professional replace your door closer's oil. Too much oil can cause your door to close or open too quickly, which can damage the door or even harm its user.

Difficult to lock doors: If your door is hard to lock, this is a serious security risk. This problem can also damage the locking mechanism, the doorframe, and the door closer. If you have trouble locking your door, call for one of our trained professionals to service your door immediately.
