Commercial Door Closer Service

A new customer starts forming an impression of a business as soon as he walks through the door. Keeping your door working properly goes a long way toward making a great first impression. Glass Doctor® of Rock Valley, IA offers manual door closer repair and maintenance services to guarantee safety for commercial doors and the employees and customers who use them.

How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers let individuals open doors with ease and don't require them to close the doors physically. When a door closer is installed correctly, a user will feel mild resistance after opening the door, giving him a feel for the door's weight. After this initial resistance, the door glides open smoothly. When a user quits applying resistance, the door closer's spring makes the mechanism's arm close carefully until the door returns to its original position.

Door Closer Repair

There can be a couple of reasons that your door closer will need to be repaired, below are some of the most common:

Improper Types of Door Closers

A heavy door needs a strong door closer with solid springs. When an entry has the wrong type of closer, there is a greater risk of injury to door users and a higher risk of misalignment or damage to the closer or the door, resulting in a costly door closer repair.

Incorrectly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

Glass Doctor of Rock Valley, IA specialists use the proper tools for installing and maintaining door closers to extend their lifespan and to ensure they remain in top working order. When you hire an experienced, reputable door specialist for door installation or door closer repair, you significantly reduce the risk of misalignment, doorframe damage and unusual or unexpected door movements.

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

Broken door seals leave hardware susceptible to damage; expose clearance gaps, making commercial buildings draftier; and may lead to lubricant leaks. Typically, an oil leak points to a mechanical issue with a door closer, such as failed seals, a missing screw or broken O-rings. You should always hire a professional door maintenance specialist to replace the door closer oil. Without ample lubrication, the door may open or close too rapidly, which can lead to door damage and user injuries.

Door is Difficult to Lock

Doors that don't lock properly pose a security risk that you can't afford to take with your business. A door with an ill-fitting lock may also compromise the door closer, doorframe or locking mechanism.
