What is a Commercial Door Closer?

A commercial door closer allows your customers to open a heavy glass door easily and pass through without having to physically close the door. If a closer is installed properly it will:

  • Allow customers to feel some resistance as they open the door, allowing them to feel how heavy the door actually is.
  • After the initial resistance, the door slowly glides open.
  • As the customer walks into the store, letting go of the door, a spring located in the door closer forces the mechanism’s arm to close gently until the door returns to the frame.

All of these steps allow for customers to smoothly enter your business and not let the door slam shut behind them.

Varying Styles of Door Closers

Commercial Door Closers come in a variety of style, and Glass Doctor of Northeast Albuquerque will help you to decide which best fits your door. The most common door closer styles are:

  • Regular Arm: The most power efficient, it is mounted on the exterior of the door.
  • Top Jam: This type is used frequently for glass storefront doors.
  • Parallel Arm - These are most commonly used in schools because of they are less susceptible to vandalism
  • Concealed: These door closers are fitted into the door/doorframe and hidden from sight.
  • Surface-mounted: Fitted to the doorframe, usually this is most cost-effective.
  • Floor-spring: This door spring is concealed and mounted to the floor instead on in the door.


Glass Doctor of Northeast Albuquerque has trained professionals who perform the following steps in order to install your commercial door closer to your storefront door:

  1. Identify the right door closer for your storefront door.
  2. Prepare the door and doorframe for installation – taking measurements and dimensions.
  3. Install necessary hardware to both the doorframe and door.
  4. Connect both pieces of the commercial door closer.

These specialists take the upmost care to either install a new storefront door with a commercial door closer to your building or to an existing door.

Commercial Door Closer Repair and Maintenance

Glass Doctor of Northeast Albuquerque’s technicians frequently repair and replace door closers because of three key problems:

  1. Incorrect Types of Door Closers – Heavy glass doors require strong door closers with strong springs that can hold the force of the door. If a storefront door has the wrong type of closer, it poses a safety risk of misalignment that can damage the closer or the actual door.
  2. Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels – Broken seals can expose clearance gaps, leaving hardware vulnerable and may cause lubricant leaks. Oil leaks generally indicate a mechanical problem, such as a broken O-ring or a missing screw. It is imperative to have a glass professional replace the oil in a door closer because a lack of lubricant causes doors to open or close quickly, posing a safety risk.
  3. Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers – Improperly installed door closers lead to the risk of misalignment and make it more difficult to open and close the doors. Glass Doctor specialists bring the right equipment to maintain your door closer, ensuring that:
  • Abnormal or unexpected movements of the door are prevented.
  • The door remain in good working conditions.
  • Have the lifespan of the door closer maximized.
