Door Closer Operation
A door closer removes some of the effort required to open a heavy door. As you apply pressure, you will gain a sense of the weight of the door before it glides open. When you release the door, it will close slowly behind you, sealing to the frame.
When to Seek Door Closer Care
A door closer must match the weight of the door. Springs that are too weak put you at risk for injury or may lead to damage to the door or closer. Below are a few more examples of improperly functioning door closers
- Improper installation: When a door closer is installed by anyone other than a trained specialist, the device can easily become misaligned or may cause the door to make unexpected movements.
- Oil leaks: An oil leak is usually due to a missing screw, a broken seal, or a damaged O-ring. All these problems require prompt attention to avoid low lubricant levels, which can cause doors to open or close too quickly. Failed seals also create clearance gaps, exposing hardware to potential damage.
- Locking problems: A door that is difficult to lock is more than just a security risk. Over time, you may damage the doorframe, locking mechanism, or door closer.
