Door Closer Repair Service

The specialists at Glass Doctor® of Bell County know how important it is to welcome your customers with a safe and convenient entry. When your doors do not open or close properly, it can be frustrating and potentially dangerous. An unsatisfactory experience can even lead customers to take their business elsewhere. That's why our experts offer comprehensive door closer repair services to businesses in Bell County and the surrounding communities.

How Door Closers Work

Most commercial entry doors are equipped with manual door closers that enable customers to easily open them. The user will usually experience a slight resistance as the door glides to the open position. Once the individual has passed through the door and the pressure from his or her pull is gone, a specially designed spring causes the mechanism's arm to smoothly return the door to its frame. If the closer is adjusted correctly and functioning properly, the door will then be latched and ready for the next customer.

If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to contact one of our specialists for prompt door closer repair.

Incorrect Type of Door Closer Installed

Since the door closer is one of the most used pieces of equipment in your business, having the correct type of mechanism installed is vital. While lighter weight commercial doors are often fine with a door closer with a smaller spring, heavier doors require closing mechanisms that are equipped with sturdier springs. Additionally, poor quality hardware may cause problems as well. When the door closer that is installed is not the right type it could damage the door, other door hardware and even injure your customers.

Improper Installation or Adjustment

Proper installation and adjustment of your door closer are essential to prevent:

  • Doorframe damage
  • Opening or closing too fast or too slow
  • Misalignment

Seals and Lubrication

Damaged seals result in clearance gaps and lubrication leaks. Oil leaks are caused by missing screws, broken O-rings or other problems. If your door is opening or closing too quickly or you notice traces of oil, contact a specialist to repair the problem and replace the lubricant. Failing to do so might result in damage to the door and a safety hazard to customers.
