Door Closer Repair Service

The moment an individual walks through the door of a business, they start to form an impression. A properly functioning front door may not seem of major importance. However, it is an integral part of this initial impression. A door that is difficult to open or doesn't close correctly is an indication of poor upkeep. Glass Doctor® of Saskatoon offers manual door closer care services, including repairs and general maintenance, ensuring your doors function properly and your employees and customers stay safe.

How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer enables an individual to open a door with ease, without having to close it behind them physically. When a door closer is installed correctly, the user feels resistance while opening the door, which provides a sense of the weight of the door. Once the door has resisted initially, it moves open smoothly. After a user stops applying resistance, the door closer's spring makes the arm of the mechanism close softly until the door is back in its original place in the frame.

Door Closer Repair

Glass Doctor of Saskatoon experts undergo extensive training to install, repair and maintain door closers to keep your doors in good working order for employees and customers. Our team repairs a variety of door closer issues.

Incorrect types of door closers: The lighter the door, the lighter the door closer and door closer spring required. Installing the wrong type of door closer increases the risk of injury to the user. It may also lead to a misalignment or damage to the door or closer.

Improperly installed and adjusted door closers: Glass Doctor of Saskatoon specialists have the proper tools for installing and maintaining door closers to extend their lifespan and keep them in good working order. Hiring an experienced specialist for your door closer care services is key for preventing misalignment, unusual or unexpected door movements and damage to the door frame.

Seal repairs and low oil levels: Broken seals leave hardware susceptible to damage, expose clearance gaps and may lead to lubricant leaks. Typically an oil leak points to a mechanical issue with a door closer, such as broken O-rings, failed seals or a missing screw. When you believe the oil level is low, contact a professional specialist. A lack of lubrication may cause the door to open or close too rapidly, possibly injuring the user or damaging the door or closer.

Difficult to lock doorways: A door with a malfunctioning lock poses a risk to the entire business. It also compromises the overall condition of the door closer, locking mechanism and door frame.
