How Door Closers Work
A properly installed entrance door should give only a slight resistance as the door is pushed open; resistance gives the customer a feel for the weight of the door. The door should slide open gently and smoothly. When the customer stops opening the door and is clear of the area, a door closer spring forces the opening and closing arm to close the door softly and return it to its frame. Door closer repair professionals should match the weight of the door; heavier doors require stronger door closers.
Door Closer Installation and Maintenance
If the wrong type of door closer is installed, it could cause misalignment and damage the door. Even worse, it could jeopardize the safety of employees and customers. The glass professionals at Glass Doctor of Newport News have the training and the proper tools to properly install a new door closer on your existing door. Regular inspections and maintenance are equally important. Your glass specialist will inspect the door for:
- Abnormal or unexpected movements that could harm entering or exiting guests
- Damage or misalignments
- Stuck or non-functioning locks
- Low oil levels
Seals and Arm Mechanisms
Lubrication is important to the spring action of the door opener. If there’s an oil leak, the loss of lubrication may cause the door to open too quickly or close jerkily. Oil leaks are a clue that a piece is broken, missing or a mechanical problem exists. During the regular maintenance inspection, a Glass Doctor of Newport News specialists will find the reason for any oil leak; it could be a broken O-ring or something as small as a missing screw. Broken seals create clearance gaps that jeopardize the integrity of the door’s hardware and cause oil leaks, as well.
