How Door Closers Work
A manual door closer allows you to open a door while saving you from having to close it behind you physically. When a door closer is properly installed, you should feel initial resistance when you pull on the door, to give you a feeling for how heavy the door is. After that, the door will glide open smoothly. When you release the door, a spring activates in the mechanism's arm. This spring gently brings the door back to its frame.
Door Closer Repair
Several common problems plague door closers. One is when a specialist installs the incorrect type of closer for a door. A door closer for a heavy door should have strong, sturdy springs. Otherwise, the door closer may pose a serious safety risk, and it may cause misalignments or even permanent damage to the door or its closer. It's also important to use proper tools when installing or maintaining door closers, to ensure they remain in good working condition. Always have an experienced specialist perform door closer repair and maintenance, to prevent dangers like doorframe damage, misalignments, or abnormal or unexpected movements of the door.
Another risk with door closers is broken seals. A broken seal will leave your door closer's hardware vulnerable, and over time may cause an oil leak. Lubricant leaks indicate mechanical problems such as failed springs, missing screws and broken O-rings. Never attempt to replace a door closer's oil by yourself. By having a trained professional replace your door closer's lubricant, you'll avoid problems caused by low lubricant levels, such as when a door opens or closes too quickly. Finally, our glass specialists will also fix doors that are difficult to lock, which pose a security risk and may affect the well-being of the doorframe, its closer and its locking mechanism.
