How Door Closers Work
Most people don't think much about the mechanics of opening a door until they don't work properly. Manual door closers provide a mechanical assist to people opening and closing heavy doors. When installed properly, the door closer provides initial resistance as your customer opens the door, giving a sense of its weight. Then it glides smoothly open until your guests stops pulling, at which point, the arm pushes it gently back into place.
Common Door Closer Issues
When you are looking at commercial door closers, there are a couple of considerations you'll want to keep in mind.
Types of door closer: The first step in proper door closer care is to make sure you have the right door closer for your door. Glass Doctor of Staten Island experts assure that the strength of your spring matches the weight of your door. This helps keep your staff and customers safe and protects your investment in your door.
Professional installation and adjustment: Door closers seem like simple mechanisms, but they require special tools and training to assure that they are installed, adjusted and maintained properly. Our experienced personnel will extend the life of your door closer and door by preventing:
- Doorframe damage
- Improper movement of your doors
- Bad alignment of your door and doorframe
Indications of problem: Regular maintenance of your closer should be part of your door closer care program, but even with regular maintenance, problems can come up. Call Glass Doctor of Staten Island if you notice any of the warning signs of damage in your door closer.
Oil and seals: Broken seals in your door closer can create numerous problems in functionality, such as clearance gaps, hardware vulnerability and oil leaks. If you notice broken seals, get them professionally replaced as soon as possible to prevent damage to your closer. Oil leaks can also be caused by other mechanical problems like missing screws or broken O-rings. If you notice the door moving too quickly, or in other unexpected ways, call us to replace the oil and repair any mechanical problems.
Difficulty locking: Another indication of problems with your door closer is difficulty locking your doors. This is a security risk for your business and may damage your door, lock and doorframe.
