How Door Closers Work
Commercial doors tend to be heavier than residential models, so a door closer makes it easier to open and close the door without having to put in a lot of physical effort. Ideally, a door closer should provide a little resistance, but easily yield with minimal pressure. As the door swings open, it should feel like a smooth gliding motion. Once the door is open and the visitor has safely passed through, a spring located in the door closer will activate and slowly and gently guide the door back to a closed position. When the door is closed, it should rest neatly in the door frame.
Door Closer Repair
Incorrect Types of Door Closers
Often times, the experts at Glass Doctor of Rome are called to replace door closers that have been installed on the wrong type of door. Heavy commercial doors must be equipped with equally strong closers and springs. If the door is too heavy for the mechanism, you may encounter safety risks and damage to the door, the closer and the frame.
Adjusted Door Closers
Just like any other mechanical device, door closers will need to be maintained in order to provide optimal performance. Our specialists perform maintenance, make adjustments and replace springs in order to maximize lifespan and prevent problems.
Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Door closers utilize seals to house lubricants and provide smooth operation. A broken seal can expose clearance gaps and hardware, which allow for leaks. If you have already noticed an oil leak, there is a problem with your hardware that needs to be addressed. It may be the case of a missing screw or a failed O-ring. Whatever the cause, our experts will be able to diagnose the problem, make any necessary repairs to the hardware and return the oil level back to a perfect state of lubrication. These simple repairs will prevent the door from opening and closing too quickly and increasing the risk of injury.
